1940-07-19 Tony Zale w rtd 13 (15) Al Hostak, Civic Stadium, Seattle, Washington, USA - NBA. Referee: Benny Leonard. Having already been beaten by Zale (158) in an overweight match the previous January, Hostak (159¾) knew what he was up against but went out like a champion. Forcing matters all the way, Zale opened up a cut over Hostak’s left eye in the eighth before closing the other as he handed out a severe beating. Dropped in the 12th round and down for a count of ‘nine’ in the 13th, Hostak, his left hand badly injured, was in a helpless state when the referee stopped the contest on the 1.20 mark.
