1944-05-05 [[Sal Bartolo]] w pts 15 [[Phil Terranova]], The Garden, Boston, Massachusetts, USA - NBA. Referee: Johnny Rawson. Making his first defence against the man he won the title from, Bartolo (126) used his left well and moved away as best he could. It was certainly tough, with the mauling, brawling Terranova (125½), cut on the right eye in the fourth, concentrating on the body and never giving the champion a moment’s respite. It was Bartolo’s class that just about gave him the split decision victory.
