1904-04-22 Jack Johnson w co 20 (20) Sam McVea, Mechanics’ Pavilion, San Francisco, California, USA. Referee: Ed Graney. A defence of Johnson’s ‘black’ title claim saw a relatively tame affair take place until a terrific right swing took McVea out of the fight in the last session.

Another fight where Johnson risked the ‘black’ title came against Frank Childs (w pts 6 at the Empire AC, Chicago, Illinois on 2 June).
