Line 1: Line 1:
1939-10-13 [[Henry Armstrong]] w co 2 (10) [[Howard Scott]], The Armory, Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - WORLD. Referee: John DeOtis. Just four nights after beating Al Manfredo the champion was again putting his title on the line, against ‘Cowboy’ Scott (147), and he made a fast start when pumping out rights and lefts to head and body to push the latter back. Dropped in the first by a left hook, Scott, who was expected to be a bit of a test for Armstrong (141), was right up against it in the second and at 1.38 of the session he was counted out after being downed by a heavy right to the head.
