  • World Heavyweight Title
  • Weights: Louis 202¼; Nova 202½
  • Referee: Arthur Donovan
  • Time: 2:59
  • 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.
