Auditorium, Saint Paul, Minnesota, USALPTS1010
Despite Anderson's 20 pound weight advantage, Wenstob held his own in the early rounds, but it began to tell in the later rounds, and only the Albertan's courage and determination allowed him to stay the full distance.

"Referee Julius Fidler said he stopped the fight when it became apparent to him that Wenstob was far too experienced and too heavy for the Green Bay fighter. Brunette was not hurt nor was he knocked down, and he wanted to continue. Fidler said to allow Brunette to continue would be inviting possible serious injury." (Ironwood Daily Globe)
