On January 24,1940 Henry Armstrong met Prdro Montanez for the Welterweight Title.For savagery and bruising fighting, virtually all of it displayed by the irrepressible Armstrong, this was a fight that has seldom been excelled. No welterweight, no man near Armstrong's inches or poundage could have survived the blistering firepower". Montanez was down for the first time in his career in the 4th. Down again at the end of the 8th, he had to be carried to his corner.(New York Times).Armstrong would win with a 9th round TKO.
