1904-07-25 (140lbs) Harry Mansfield drew 15 Jim Courtney, Welsh NSC, Cardiff, Wales. Referee: Ed Plummer. Billed for the English 140lbs title, it was Courtney who had the best of the opening few sessions before Mansfield began to gradually wear him down. Several times Mansfield brought Courtney to the floor with solid right hands to the head, but the latter always came back strongly. Contested over two-minute rounds, the result proved nothing.
