1941-12-19 [[Sammy Angott]] w pts 15 [[Lew Jenkins]], Madison Square Garden, Manhattan, NYC, New York, USA - WORLD. Referee: Arthur Susskind. Scorecards: 13-2, 13-2, 13-2. Having only won three of his last six non-title contests, Jenkins (133) was a huge disappointment as he went down tamely by a unanimous decision against the NBA champion, Angott (133½), who was scarcely better in what was described as the division’s worst ever title fight by ''The Ring'' magazine. It appeared that Jenkins had made his mind up not to fight, for whatever reason, as he continuously went through a grab-and-hold routine. Meanwhile Angott, who would earn the nickname of ‘The Clutch’, closed Jenkins down and made it difficult for him to get his punches off as he stayed at close quarters to work on the inside.
