1943-11-19 [[Beau Jack]] w pts 15 [[Bob Montgomery]], Madison Square Garden, Manhattan, NYC, New York, USA - NY/PENN. Referee: Arthur Susskind. Scorecards: 10-4, 10-5, 7-6. Few would have given Jack (132¾) a chance after their first fight, but he surprised Montgomery (133¾) by a change of tactics that was based on speed and use of the bolo punch. Both men gave it everything they had and, although the fight was devoid of any science it was hugely entertaining, with first one then the other looking to end the fight early as both connected with big punches. Ultimately, it was Jack who carried off the unanimous decision and the title, having managed to keep up the electric pace before tiring before the final bell came to his rescue.
