| referee: Matt Adgie 4-6 | judge: Eddie Loughran 3-6 | judge: Lou Tress 5-4 |
The decision was well-received by the audience. Williams appeared to be the clear winner, although Angott won the second, seventh, and eighth rounds, and the third was even. Williams was busier and hit more cleanly.
|1944-08-01||Aaron Perry||20-2-0||Griffith Stadium, Washington, District of Columbia, USA||W||UD||11||11|
|This actually was an eleven-round fight. See The Ring, October 1944, page 46. The consensus was that Angott won six rounds, Perry two, and three were even, also according to The Ring. (A.P. scored it 7-2-2).|

The official scoring was 4-4-2 (draw), 6-4 for Angott, and 5-3-2 for Williams. The referee voted for Williams and under the rules this gave the decision to Ike. It was Angott's mauling, swarming style against the cleaner boxing and sharper hitting of Williams. Attendance was 15,500 and the gross gate was $46,025.

| referee: Spud Murphy 6-4 | judge: Harry Lasky | judge: Eddie Loughran |
Official scorecards: 6-5-1 (Lasky) and 6-4-2 (Murphy) for Angott; 6-5-1 for Montgomery (Loughran). It was a gruelling fight, but not spectacular. Angott kept the fight at close quarters as much as he could and outgeneralled Montgomery in the early rounds. Montgomery had the better of rounds six through nine. Angott, who evidently injured his left hand along the way, won rounds 10 and 12 and Montgomery took the 11th. This fight epitomized Angott's rough and tumble fighting style. Attendance was 16050 and the gross gate was $33.553.

| referee: Irving Kutcher | judge: Harry Lacky | judge: Eddie Loughran |
Kutcher scored the fight 7-2-1, Lasky 6-3-1, and Loughran 7-1-2.
Angott was down for a nine count in the 2nd round. He barely beat the count and after that "never could launch a sustained offensive against the dancing, long-armed Negro who hit him with darting jabs, whistling left hooks and booming bolo punches, rights that came up from the floor to sink into Sammy's stomach." Angott barely won the third round, split the eighth, and won the ninth. Robinson won the others.

|1940-11-25||Bob Montgomery||26-2-3||Arena, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA||W||MD||10||10|
| referee: Irving Kutcher | judge: Al Voice | judge: Eddie Loughran |
Official scorecards: 6-4, 5-4-1, Loughran 4-4-2. Angott was much faster afoot and alternated his speedy movements with catch-and-catch-can tactics of clouting and clutching. Meanwhile, Montgomery was busily throwing punches and piling up points. Angott was popular with the audience; that and a big rally in rounds eight and nine brought him the win.
