1903-03-11 (134lbs) Joe Gans w rtd 11 (20) Steve Crosby, Whittington Park Arena, Hot Springs, Arkansas, USA. The Philadelphia Item reported this one as another successful defence of the lightweight title for Gans at 134lbs. Gans did all the fighting, being superior in every detail, and after repeatedly knocking Crosby down and punching him all around the ring the latter was finally put out of his misery when his corner threw in the towel during the 11th round.
