1946-06-28 June Bob Montgomery w co 13 (15) Allie Stolz, Madison Square Garden, Manhattan, NYC, New York, USA - NY/PENN. Referee: Ruby Goldstein. Despite Stolz (132½) showing great skill, especially in slipping punches, he lacked the durability required to survive the heavy blows being tossed by the champion and took counts in the second and fifth sessions. After Montgomery (134¾) had points deducted for two low blows in the sixth Stolz showed great heart and no little ability to get into the 11th round, where he took two early counts. With the crowd right behind him, Stolz, making punches miss by inches, somehow made it to the bell. It couldn’t last and having been dumped again in the 12th, Stolz gamely proceeded to the 13th before he was counted out with six seconds of the round remaining, following a tremendous right to the jaw.
