1955-06-29 [[Wallace Bud Smith]] w pts 15 [[Jimmy Carter]], The Garden, Boston, Massachusetts, USA - WORLD. Referee: Mel Manning. Scorecards: 147-140, 145-144, 143-144. A four-to-one underdog, Smith (134) relentlessly hunted down the champion down from the opening bell and despite losing several of the earlier rounds came on strong to hand Carter (134¼) what was probably his worst ever beating. With Carter’s ripping body attacks versus Smith’s slashing left hooks being the order of the day the last three rounds would decide the winner and it was then that the latter came through stronger to take the decision. In what was a bloody affair, despite a lack of knockdowns, at the final bell Carter required 15 stitches, nine over his left eye and six over the right, while Smith needed three on his left optic.
