1929-01-01 Tod Morgan nd-l pts 10 Joey Sangor, The Auditorium, Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - WISCONSIN/CALIFORNIA/NY/PENN. Referee: Walter Houlahan. In what was a slashing fight with rallies virtually in every round, Morgan (128½) got away to a fair start before being badly hurt by a stray left that went low in the fourth. Assisted to his corner and given a good rest, the champion lost ground in the next three sessions as Sangor (128) took advantage of the situation, but he came back well despite the newspaper decision going to his rival.
