From Maple Leaf Stadium August 1959 Whipper Watson faces Don Leo Jonathon. After Jonathon was declared the winner angry fans threw chairs at the ring while Gene Kiniski came out to help Don Leo.

Ref Joe Gollub suffered a direct hit and required stitches for a cut to the head. Jonathon was in the midst of an un-beaten streak since arriving in Toronto earning wins or draws against Carpentier, Thesz, Hutton, Yukon Eric and others.

Whipper would finally end the streak at MLG in October 1959
