Auditorium, Portland, Oregon, USANCNC710
referee: Tom Louttit
"Midget Wolgast, who retired undefeated after five years as world flyweight champion, was ordered out of the ring [by the referee]... Wolgast, appearing fat and out of condition, refused to mix and Fontaine forced the bout for six rounds before Referee Tom Louttit declared the fight no contest." (UP) (Sometimes incorrectly recorded as a K.O. win for Fontaine.) Wolgast was suspended indefinitely and fined $139 by the Portland Boxing Commission for his "stalling tactics."
