HISTORY: On September 15, 1939 (postponed from September 7th)at Municipal Stadium in Philadelphia heavyweights "Two Ton" Tony Galento and Lou Nova met in an important divisional matchup. Galento prevailed and stopped Nova in the 14th round. "..One of the most disgraceful fights staged since the days of the barroom brawls. Referee George Blake would have retained his reputation as a great referee had he disqualified Galento." (The Ring, December 1939, page 16) Galento was permitted to thumb Nova's right eye until it reached a terrible condition. Finally Lou went down in the 14th round after being fouled for the last time.
