1946-04-30 Ike Williams w rsc 8 (15) Enrique Bolanos, Wrigley Field, Los Angeles, California, USA - NBA. Referee: Benny Whitman. After taking the first couple of rounds by dint of a good left-hand lead, the challenger was assailed by Williams (134½) in the third and saved by the bell when blasted to the canvas by a terrific left hook. Dropped from a right to the body in the fourth, Bolanos (133½) was never in the fight from there on and was put down again, this time for ‘nine’, in the fifth. Showing immense bravery he struggled into the eighth before being rescued by the referee at 2.22 of the session, having taken another count of ‘nine’ and being in no fit state to defend himself.
