1912-07-04 (122lbs) Johnny Kilbane nd-w pts 12 Tommy Dixon, Luna Park, Cleveland, Ohio, USA. Referee: Matt Hinkel. The Cleveland Plain Dealer reported this one to be an articled title fight at 122lbs, with Dixon doing most of the aggressive work and Kilbane merely content to counter. Never in any danger, Kilbane, whose speed was too much for Dixon, had the latter under pressure in the last two rounds and hanging over the ropes when the final bell went.
