1939-03-16 Henry Armstrong w co 1 (15) Lew Feldman, Municipal Auditorium, St Louis, Missouri, USA - WORLD. Referee: Walter Heisner. Billed and reported as a fight that involved Armstrong’s light and welterweight titles, the champion started well with sharp left jabs before getting down to business to floor Feldman (134) for a count of ‘nine’ after less than two minutes of action. There was no coming back from that, and with Feldman back on his feet Armstrong (135) piled in with powerful rights and lefts to leave the former on the deck to be counted out with just 2.12 on the clock.
