1942-06-19 [[Chalky Wright]] w rsc 10 (15) [[Harry Jeffra]], Oriole Park, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - NY/MARYLAND. Referee: Eddie Brockman. Although Jeffra (124½) started well, using the left jab to keep Wright (124) at bay, by the fourth round the champion was beginning to pin him in the corners where he would get in right-hand smashes to the body. By the sixth, Jeffra, now cut on the left eye, was starting to tire and in the ninth session when definitely weakening from the pace he was belted by a right hander to the jaw which put him down, only to be saved by the bell. There was no doubt now that it was going to be just a matter of time, and under heavy pressure he was rescued from taking further punishment by the referee in the tenth on the 1.50 mark. Despite having the seventh round docked after landing a low blow it was never in doubt that Wright would win, the only doubt being when.
