1922-09-21Young Montreal49-10-4
Olympic A.C., Detroit, Michigan, USALKO810
From the Detroit Free-Press, 22 September 1922 (Herb Goldman). "From the outset Asher was outboxed by the more experienced Montreal..Continued landing of Montreal's left to the head had Asher's brain in a whirl when he came out for the eighth (round), and when he tried to force the fighting he was met with another shower of lefts." Finally, Asher was floored and took the last several numbers of the count while on his right knee. He could have arisen before the ten-count was completed, but would only have received more punishment.
