1947-08-22 Willie Pep w rsc 12 (15) Jock Leslie, Atwood Stadium, Flint, Michigan, USA - WORLD. Referee: Clarence Rosen. Despite being dangerous at all times and hurting the champion on occasion, especially in the early rounds, Leslie (125) was gradually dismantled as Pep (125¾) ducked inside most of which came his way before replying with lightning left jabs and right crosses. By the eighth it looked to be a foregone conclusion, with Leslie cut over the left eye and being jabbed silly, and in the 12th Pep cut loose and put his rival down for ‘nine’ with solid lefts and a heavy right. On Leslie staggering up unsteadily, Pep ripped away to the body and dropped him again before the referee, who could have counted him out several times, stopped the contest at 0.45 of the session.
