1898-03-14 (96lbs) Ted Beach w pts 20 Joe Williams, NSC, Covent Garden, London, England. Referee: George Vize. Billed for the English 96lbs title, Beach proved far too clever for the aggressive Williams, never giving him an opening and boxing at great speed. While there were no knockdowns it was always interesting, but Beach was always one move ahead, his left-hand work being especially pleasing.

Regardless of the win, Beach never boxed at the weight again.
