Huck (38-2-1) battered Larghetti with a barrage of punches at the conclusion of the 12th and final round, scoring what appeared to be a brutal knockout. But referee Jack Reiss overruled what appeared initially to be a KO win, stating that Huck’s final knockout punch floored Larghetti before the round was over, but the challenger didn’t hit the canvas until after the bell sounded to end the fight.

As a result of Reiss’ ruling, the decision was placed in the hands of the judges, who ruled unanimously in Huck’s favor: 116-112, 116-112, 118-110.
