  • Location: Civic Auditorium, Seattle, Washington, USA
  • Referee: Tommy McCarty

Woods was floored for a nine-count in the third and twisted his ankle as he fell. He limped badly for the next two rounds and his speed was hampered for the duration of the bout. The bout had originally been scheduled for February 28th, but Ross had cancelled the fight, due to illness.
