1940-05-20 Harry Jeffra w pts 15 Joey Archibald, The Coliseum, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - NY/MARYLAND. Referee: Arthur Donovan. Making a great start, Jeffra (123¼) had Archibald (122) down twice in the second round from cracking rights to the jaw, only for the latter to regain his strength to come back to last the distance. The challenger was always one step ahead even when both tired, and although Archibald concentrated on the mid-section to have some success, Jeffra continued to come back with heavy punches to the head to well deserve the unanimous decision.
