On October 19, 1922, Larry Gains won the referee's decision over New York's Gordon Munce in the heavyweight bout at the International Invitation Boxing Tournament in Toronto. After clearly dominating the heavier Yank throughout their match, Gains dropped his hands at the final bell and Munce landed his only serious punch of the fight.
Gains held the Canadian heavyweight title from 1927 until his retirement in 1939.
Gains was inducted in 1974 into the Canadian Boxing Hall of Fame.
