1959-03-18 [[Davey Moore]] w rtd 13 (15) Hogan Kid Bassey, Olympic Auditorium, Los Angeles, California, USA - WORLD. Referee: Tommy Hart. Moving into his stride early on, Bassey (125), working well with solid hooks to head and body, took the first five rounds relatively easily before disaster struck at the end of the seventh after the bell rang to end the round. It was then that the champion was caught by half a dozen solid punches after Moore (125½) failed to hear the bell before he went dazedly back to his corner. He was also now affected by a series of bad cuts around the eyes, which were beginning to blind him. Bravely he fought on looking to pull the fight round, but it was becoming impossible and after taking punches he would normally have avoided he was retired by his corner at the end of the 13th.
