On January 9, 1942 Joe Louis defended his title for the second time against Buddy Baer. The fight was at Madison Square Garden in New York. The two had fought six months earlier and ended in a controversial disqualification of Baer when his manager wouldn't leave the ring protesting what he claimed was a punch by Louis after the bell.
