Line 1: Line 1:
1939-01-10 [[Henry Armstrong]] w pts 10 [[Baby Arizmendi]], Olympic Auditorium, Los Angeles, California, USA - WORLD. Referee: George Blake. Scorecard: 6-1-3. After ten rounds of head-to-head fighting, the referee decided that Armstrong (134½), who weighed inside the lightweight limit, had outscored Arizmendi (136). Although the champion often threw questionable punches, Arizmendi, who finished up with battered features and both eyes cut, just stood in front of him and took what landed. It was non-stop action all the way, with Armstrong bobbing and weaving and boring in, and while both men threw plenty of punches it was apparent that the champion threw more. This was the sixth meeting between the pair.
