1910-05-12 (115lbs) Johnny Coulon nd-w pts 10 Phil McGovern, Madison AC, Brooklyn, NYC, New York, USA. Coulon, putting his 115lbs title claim at risk, appeared to be a clear-cut winner, his speed and punch-rate being far too much for McGovern to handle. Although McGovern, who appeared weak at the weight, put Coulon down in the third round with a right swing to the jaw the latter got up quickly to return the compliment. From there on, McGovern was given no further opportunities.
