1908-02-28 (122lbs) Abe Attell w co 7 (20) Eddie Kelly, Dreamland Arena, San Francisco, California, USA. Referee: Jack Welch. With both men inside 122lbs at 8pm as arranged, Attell got down to business quickly when using the left jab as and how he pleased. After a round or so it was obvious that Attell could finish Kelly off when it was right for him, and in the seventh after the latter had been knocked down three times the policeman in charge asked the referee to stop the contest, only to be told that the man from Buffalo had already been counted out.
