1908-06-13 Tommy Burns w co 8 (10) Bill Squires, Neuilly Bowling Palace, Paris, France - WORLD. Referee: Dr Phelin Roux. Squires (183) gave Burns (184) a fair bit of bother until tiring in the ninth round, having gone punch for punch at times. Coming out for the tenth, mustering all of his remaining energy, Squires tore into Burns, only to be stopped in his tracks by a blow to the body that dropped him for the full count.
