1909-01-14 (122lbs) Abe Attell w co 10 (15) Freddie Weeks, The Arena, Goldfield, Nevada, USA. Referee: Ed Graney. Billed for the American (world) 122lbs title, both men making the weight with ease, Attell was in control all of the way, cutting Weeks’ left eye in the third round, outgeneraling his rival, and finally outpunching him. Starting the tenth with a vengeance, Attell smashed Weeks into the ropes with a series of vicious swings to the head before putting the latter down and out with a right cross to the jaw.
