1906-10-29 (108lbs) Sam Kellar w co 9 (15) Mark Verrall, NSC, Covent Garden, London, England. Billed for the English 108lbs title, although Verrall (107), the title claimant, made a good start by the third round Kellar (108) was getting on top prior to dropping the Tottenham man for ‘five’ in the fourth with a left hook. Coming back well, Verrall began to mix it up before both men went to ground together in the eighth. The ninth session saw Kellar on the attack, when recognising that Verrall was still dazed, and following a solid uppercut and two rights to the jaw the latter dropped down to be counted out.
With Verrall still claiming the 108lbs title on the premise that the winner could not make 108lbs again, and Ralph Marshall challenging all England (January 1907), Kellar soon moved on.
On 8 November, in Buenos Aires, Argentina, Young Bill Smith outpointed Joe Daly over 12 rounds. Reported in the Sporting Life, there was no information about the boxers’ weights, and despite the article stating that it was billed for the world 106lbs championship it was not taken seriously. Incidentally, Smith was billed as Ike Dorsett.
