13 October Sixto Escobar w co 1 (15) Indian Quintana, Madison Square Garden, Manhattan, NYC, New York, USA – NY/NBA. Referee: Arthur Donovan. The fight had hardly started when Escobar (118) landed a terrific right-hander on the challenger’s jaw, a punch that finished the contest there and then. Worryingly, Quintana (117½), who was counted out on the 1.49 mark, was in a coma for over an hour before he came round.
