1941-04-25 [[Lou Salica]] w pts 15 [[Lou Transparenti]], The Coliseum, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - WORLD. Referee: Charlie Baum. This was yet another close call for Salica (117¼), who went behind over the first ten rounds before calling up all of his reservoirs of inner strength to come through over the last six sessions to take the unanimous decision. At one stage, the challenger, Transparenti (117¾), looked a certain winner, but having struggled to make the weight for the contest he began to tire rapidly and was all-in at the finish.
