1927-12-16 Tod Morgan w disq 14 (15) Joe Glick, Madison Square Garden, Manhattan, NYC, New York, USA - NY/CALIFORNIA/PENN. Referee: Eddie Forbes. Strangely below par, Morgan (128¾) almost lost his title in this one, having been dropped four times for long counts in the first five rounds and on the verge of being knocked out. Although behind on the scorecards, the champion made a game, though uphill recovery to actually carry off three of the last four rounds before being downed by a low blow in the 14th. The transgression saw Glick (129½) being thrown out of the ring with just four minutes and 51 seconds of the bout remaining. It was an unfortunate ending to a fight Glick was almost certain to win had it gone the distance.
