11 January (115/116lbs) Johnny Coulon nd-w co 3 (10) George Kitson, Auditorium Theatre, South Bend, Indiana, USA. The Chicago Tribune gave this one as involving the 116lbs title despite being made at 115lbs. Showing remarkable speed Coulon was too much for his aggressive foe and after dropping him for ‘seven’ in the third round he finished him off with a left swing to the jaw.
