1946-06-07 Willie Pep w co 12 (15) Sal Bartolo, Madison Square Garden, Manhattan, NYC, New York, USA - WORLD. Referee: Frank Fullam. Content to stick to his boxing in the early rounds, Pep (126) merely bided his time while piling up the points, but in the fifth and eighth he gave the rugged Bartolo (125¼) a taste of things to come when opening up with solid blows. Then, in the 12th session, having handed out a steady beating, Pep finally opened up and standing his ground he cracked in a short right and left hook followed by a terrific right to the jaw that left Bartolo on the floor to be counted out on the 2.41 mark. On winning, Pep recorded his 100th victory in 102 contests. Severely injured in a plane crash on 8 January 1947, Pep fooled just about everyone when getting back into action in mid-June and taking on board six non-title bouts in the space of five weeks before defending his title against Jock Leslie.
