Madison Square Garden, New York, New York, USALSD1010
referee: Billy Cavanaugh 5-3 | judge: Bill Healy 3-6 | judge: Tom Curley 1-9

1941-09-25Sugar Ray Robinson24-0-0
Convention Hall, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USALUD1010
referee: Irving Kutcher | judge: Al Volce | judge: Frank Knaresborough
The official scorecards were 7-2-1, 4-3-3, and 8-2, all in favor of Robinson. Servo was the aggressor and made it an exciting fight all the way. The taller Robinson was the prohibitive favorite and handed out a lot of punishment, but Servo took it all in stride and did a lot of damage himself, especially at close quarters. Sugar Ray's biggest rounds were the eighth and tenth. There were no knockdowns.
