1930-02-21Henry Perlick4-3-6
Coliseum, Chicago, Illinois, USALTKO26
time: 1:25
"The heart was there, but the old ability was lacking, and Charlie White knows now that 'they never come back.'... The fight was a pitiful exhibition of a man trying to do what he used to do... Charlie threw his famous left hook, which had such men as Benny Leonard and Freddy Welsh on the floor, at the start of the second, and received for his effort a right cross which knocked him down. Twice more he went down without taking a count, although he was getting up on nerve alone. The fourth time the crowd yelled wildly for him to 'take it' that he stayed down for nine. The fifth time a towel was thrown in from Charlie's corner. In a daze, White wanted to know 'why did you stop it?' - the old heart was still there. It was White's first start since December 18, 1923." (UP)
