1907-02-12 (105lbs) Johnny Coulon w pts 10 Young Fitzgerald, Green Valley AC, Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA. Referee: Mr Sharp. Billed for the 105lbs championship of Western America, Coulon, showing tremendous speed and purpose, was far too good for Fitzgerald. Setting of at a fast pace, after two rounds Coulon was well in control. Fitzgerald, who looked drawn at the weight, had no answer to Coulon’s ring generalship and was unable to get going.

Following the decision, Coulon laid claim to the national title.
