1938-07-19 Young Corbett 111 w pts 10 Glen Lee, Teachers’ College Stadium, Fresno, California, USA - CALIFORNIA. Referee: Freddie Bottero. Contesting the vacant Californian version of the title, Corbett (160) used all of his ring-craft to completely bewilder Lee (156) for most of the ten rounds when taking the referee’s decision by a comfortable margin. Lee was never really in it, apart from when landing three heavy overarm rights to Corbett’s jaw in the third, and he was outboxed and outpunched during every session by the 33-year-old southpaw.
