1915-07-24 (142lbs) Harry Stone nd-w pts 10 Eddie Fitzsimmons, Fairmont AC, Bronx, NYC, New York, USA. The New York Telegram reported that Stone was never at risk of losing his 142lbs title claim in this one, even though Fitzsimmons was a shade in front after five rounds. Picking up the pace at that stage of the fight, after Stone inflicted a cut over Fitzsimmons’ left eye in the seventh he had the latter on the back foot right through to the final bell.
