McCormick defends his claim as World Welterweight champion. Summers attacked from the opening bell but as his initial onslaught faded McCormick took over, and although the fight lasted only 2:30 "more fast and effective work was seen in that brief period than often occur in a half-dozen rounds of a less vigorous contest".
