The lightweight championship bout between Henry Armstrong and Lou Ambers was fought at Yankee Stadium on August 22, 1939. Three days later, this 20-minute filmed abridgement of the 15-round fight was making the theatrical rounds. To save time, supervisor Jack Rieger offers highlights from only 10 of the 15 rounds in The Armstrong-Ambers Fight. Thus it is that Armstrong's ultimate defeat, which originally took 50 minutes, takes place well within the allotted two reels. Reviewers were satisfied with The Armstrong-Ambers Fight, though it was noted that it hardly advanced the art of the sports film.
