1899-03-04 Frank Childs w rtd 6 (10) Bob Armstrong, Stag AC, Cincinnati, Ohio, USA. Referee: Johnny Murphy. Reduced from 15 rounds due to State law, Armstrong, much the taller of the pair, started well with the left jab before being staggered in the second round by a solid right to the jaw. Picking it up in the third Childs soon had Armstrong in trouble, dropping him with a right swing to the head. Both men gave it everything they had in the fourth and fifth sessions before Childs got right on top. In the sixth Armstrong was sent crashing into the ropes from a heavy right to the jaw, and when he rebounded off them another big right sent him staggering around the ring in a befuddled state, whereupon his corner threw up the sponge.
