1947-02-07Tony Pellone26-9-4
Olympia Stadium, Detroit, Michigan, USALUD1010
An "upset decision" - Pellone was considered the underdog; Montgomery was the recognized world lightweight champion in New York & Pennsylvania. "Neither the unanimous decision nor the crowd's whole-hearted approval was in doubt after the first few rounds as the 22 year old Pellone, who weighed 141¾ to 140½ for Montgomery, led the punching all the way and once sent his Philadelphia opponent half slipping to the canvas for a count of two."

referee: Spud Murphy 4-6 | judge: Harry Lasky | judge: Eddie Loughran
Official scorecards: 6-5-1 (Lasky) and 6-4-2 (Murphy) for Angott; 6-5-1 for Montgomery (Loughran). It was a gruelling fight, but not spectacular. Angott kept the fight at close quarters as much as he could and outgeneralled Montgomery in the early rounds. Montgomery had the better of rounds six through nine. Angott, who evidently injured his left hand along the way, won rounds 10 and 12 and Montgomery took the 11th. This fight epitomized Angott's rough and tumble fighting style. Attendance was 16050 and the gross gate was $33.553.

referee: Irving Kutcher | judge: Al Voice | judge: Eddie Loughran
Official scorecards: 6-4, 5-4-1, Loughran 4-4-2. Angott was much faster afoot and alternated his speedy movements with catch-and-catch-can tactics of clouting and clutching. Meanwhile, Montgomery was busily throwing punches and piling up points. Angott was popular with the audience; that and a big rally in rounds eight and nine brought him the win.
