1906-05-21 (112lbs) Digger Stanley w co 18 (20) Harry Slough, Ginnett’s Circus, Newcastle, England. Referee: Billy Bell. Billed for the English 112lbs title, following five relatively quiet rounds Stanley gained a decisive advantage over Slough in the sixth after getting home with a cracking right to the jaw. Although Slough tried to turn things around, often matching Stanley punch for punch, he was unable to move the latter who eventually asserted his striking superiority in the 18th when delivering the final blow of the contest.
