  • Location: Legion Stadium, Hollywood, California, USA
  • Referee: Frankie Van

Fitzpatrick landed a left and a crushing right hand, which sent Payne through the ropes, and onto the canvas, where he was counted out. Prior to the knockout, the two had been fighting on even terms. Fitzpatrick who had lost their previous encounter at the Olympic Auditorium a month before, was a 7-to-10 favorite in the bout.
