Sixto Escobar had relinquished the "undisputed" world bantam title a few months earlier, unable to make the 118-pound limit any longer.

Pace, the NBA Bantamweight Champion, knocked out Docherty at 1:34 of the first round. But Col.

Docherty was revived and the fight renewed where it had left off in the first round. He weathered that stanza, but was KO'd again at 0:34 of the second period. Tacoma News Tribune

Mutual Street Arena, Toronto, Ontario, CanadaLDQ610
referee: Herschel Osbourne
"After piling up a huge margin on points in five rounds the Spider suddenly caught up with a solid right to the heart in the sixth and when the same right on the return trip caught him square on the button, down he went for a short count. But instead of staying down for nine as is the usual custom, he half got up, only to go down again on advice from his corner. This is strictly against the rules of pugilistiana and he was so told by Referee Herschel Osborne, who ordered him up. So he got up and started milling with Pace, but at this stage the ring became overcrowded mostly through the appearance therein of Tom Stanley, Pace's manager, who hollered for a disqualification in loud and urgent tones. He asked for it and he got it. Only Pace was disqualified and not Armstrong." - Toronto Star
