1942-11-20 Willie Pep w pts 15 Chalky Wright, Madison Square Garden, Manhattan, NYC, New York, USA - NY. Referee: Arthur Donovan. Scorecards: 10-4, 11-4, 11-4. Put simply, Pep (125½) literally ran away with the title as he boxed on the back foot non-stop along the ropes and in and out of corners, flicking out the left-hand to secure the verdict. Apart from rounds five through to seven, when Wright (125¾) cut Pep’s left eye and beat him around the body to shade the rounds, the challenger kept running to leave the older man punching away at thin air. For the many spectators, apart from Pep’s fans, it was a disappointment as they expected to see a champion crowned coming forward not in retreat.
