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."

Fugazy Bowl, Brooklyn, New York, USAWPTS1010
Reporter Charles Vackner wrote that Wolgast back-handed Sanstol several times for which he was warned once, and regarding the others "the Quakertowner did the trick so fast that the referee couldn't see [them]." "The brow of Sanstol's eyes oozed gore at the finish and the fiery Norwegian looked as though he had been battered about the face with a carpet beater." (Wolgast was recognized in New York State as world's flyweight champion at this time.)
