1900-07-16 (128lbs) Terry McGovern w rtd 3 (10) Frank Erne, Madison Square Garden, Manhattan, NYC, New York, USA. Referee: Charlie White. Although a handicap match with Erne agreeing not to exceed 128lbs, McGovern was seen in some American eyes as extending his title to that weight on his victory. The fight itself was fast and exciting while it lasted, Erne putting McGovern down in the first before having his nose broken and going down three times in the third prior to his corner throwing the towel in.
