12 March (105lbs) Johnny Coulon w rsc 8 (10) Young Fitzgerald, Green Valley AC, Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA. Referee: Mr Sharp. By dint of his recent draw against Kid Murphy, Fitzgerald was still laying claim to a portion of the 105lbs title while Coulon was looking for a return against the same man. Prior to the finish, Fitzgerald was going well, both men having hurt each other, but in the eighth he unluckily broke his left arm when blocking a Coulon power shot and the referee quickly stopped the fight.
