1939-03-31 [[Henry Armstrong]] w rsc 12 (15) [[Davey Day]], Madison Square Garden, Manhattan, NYC, New York, USA - WORLD. Referee: Billy Cavanagh. Although waging a stubborn battle, Day (136), while never threatening Armstrong (135), showed a tremendous ability to assimilate everything thrown at him and fight back without ever going down. That was until the 12th round when a solid right to the body finally put the exhausted challenger down after a hail of blows to the head had met with little or no resistance. Dispensing with the count when it was obvious that Day could not continue, the referee called a halt at 2.49 to help the beaten fighter back to his corner.
