1943-05-21 Bob Montgomery w pts 15 Beau Jack, Madison Square Garden, Manhattan, NYC, New York, USA - NY/PENNSYLVANIA. Referee: Arthur Donovan. Scorecards: 9-6, 10-5, 10-3. Badly wobbled and almost out of the fight after being hit by several crunching right-hand uppercuts in the first session, Montgomery (134) came through the crisis well. Although Jack (135) continued to press by the 11th he was almost out of gas, his left eye cut and having just been dropped by a peach of a left hook. Regardless, Jack somehow managed to keep going to the final bell to lose the unanimous decision. It been an uphill struggle for Jack from the sixth, the round that Montgomery had virtually assumed control, his two-fisted attacks carrying the champion before him.
