1915-03-20 (160lbs) Young Ahearn nd-w pts 10 Italian Joe Gans, Irving AC, Brooklyn, NYC, New York, USA. Defending his 160lbs title claim, with both men inside the weight, Ahearn continued his advance to the top of the middleweight tree when decisively outscoring Gans, his cleverness being just too much for the latter. Having got on top from the beginning, Ahearn started to send in clusters of punches from both hands without reply, something he did again and again. With Gans unable to fathom Ahearn out he never came close to putting a dent in the title claimant’s plans.
