Notes:

Leonard was down in the second round. “McLarnin, no respecter of persons or fistic kingdoms, hammered and battered Leonard pitilessly, while the veteran offered a weak resistance through five of the six rounds. When convinced that it was a futile undertaking by Leonard, Referee Donovan wisely stopped the struggle.
