1900-08-13 (142lbs) Rube Ferns w rtd 15 (25) Eddie Connolly, Olympic AC, Buffalo, New York, USA. Referee: Ed McBride. The Buffalo Courier stated that the American 142lbs title changed hands on the result, but with both men weighing in under 140lbs Ferns also took over Connolly’s claim at that weight. The fight itself was evenly contested up to the 15th, but things changed in that round after Ferns landed three blows below the ribs that saw Connolly backed up and reeling against the ropes before his corner threw in the towel.
