TKO8/10
Chicago A.A., Chicago, Illinois, USA
The Chicago Tribune gave this as a fight between Midget Smith and "Binga Bella." Francisco Bella is unlikely to have been the man involved. However, no "Binga Bella" is known. Lud Abella of the Philippines was given consideration, but he had a fight in England too close to this date.

"Johnston steadily outpointed him for 7 seven rounds and won the award by a good margin. Smith finished strong and had Johnston well plastered in gore, but the latter was really never in difficulty...it was a cracking good bout all the way." Toronto Star.
