1938-07-26 [[Al Hostak]] w co 1 (15) [[Freddie Steele]], Civic Stadium, Seattle, Washington, USA - NBA. Referee: Jack Dempsey. Right from the opening bell, Hostak (158¼) looked to get his big punches off and the fight had hardly begun when he spotted an opening to crash in a left to the jaw that dropped Steele (159) in a heap. Instead of looking to buy himself time, Steele jumped up straight away and paid the penalty when he was knocked down twice more before being counted out after just 103 seconds, having been smashed down again by a terrific right to the jaw.
