1941-09-29 : Joe Louis 202¼ lbs beat Lou Nova 202½ lbs by TKO at 2:59 in round 6 of 15

  • Location: Polo Grounds, New York, New York, USA
  • Referee: Arthur Donovan

World Heavyweight Title

Nova was knocked down once in the 6th round. Lou made a poor showing. According to Nat Fleischer (The Ring, December 1941, page 4), he didn't win a round and took a terrible beating in the sixth round. The end was somewhat controversial because the fight was stopped with just one second left in the round when Nova arose unsteadily from the knockdown.
