The second of Chilean boxer Arturo Godoy's heavyweight championship bouts with Joe Louis was even less successful for him than the first. Whereas Louis won their first match with a TKO after 15 rounds, Godoy went down for the count in the second fight after a mere 24 minutes. Thus it wasn't much of a challenge for this filmed record of the Louis-Godoy battle to boil down the highlights to two reels. Much of the film was lensed in slow motion, allowing Louis' multitude of fans to truly luxuriate in Godoy's defeat. The Louis-Godoy Fight was completed and distributed on June 22, 1940, two days after the fight itself.
