1959-07-20 Harold Gomes w pts 15 Paul Jorgensen, Pierce Field, Providence, Rhode Island, USA - NBA. Referee: Sharkey Buonanno. Scorecards: 71-63, 70-63, 70-66. Despite getting off to a great start and having points in the bank, in the 11th round Gomes (127½) had to survive three counts of ‘eight’ before storming back to take control again with the jab. It was at this point that Jorgensen (129½) became arm-weary, and just as it looked as though Gomes was back on top in the final session, when electing to punch it out with the former he was put down yet again. Not only did Gomes get up, but yet again he came back strongly to take the unanimous decision and with it the vacant crown.
