1899-08-30 (126lbs) Tommy White w pts 20 Harry Lyons, Sangerbund Hall, Dubuque, Iowa, USA. Billed for the American 126lbs title, with both men inside the weight, it was a poor fight from start to finish as neither White nor Lyons appeared to possess the power to conclude matters early, and there was far too much hugging. Although Lyons made a good start before weakening he failed to gain any advantage.
