1898-06-06 (126lbs) George Dixon w pts 20 Eddie Santry, Lenox AC, Manhattan, NYC, New York, USA. Referee: Charlie White. Made at 125lbs, and involving Dixon’s title claim at 126lbs, although Santry showed great defensive skill it was not enough against a man who never allowed him any room to move. Despite having reach advantages, Santry rarely used his jab and failed to take a forward step.
