1916-02-21 (145lbs) Eddie Moha nd-w disq 11 (15) Kid Graves, Shamrock AC, Dayton, Ohio, USA. Referee: Bud Lally. Although Graves had dropped press decisions to both Ted Kid Lewis and Jack Britton he was still claiming the title at 145lbs ringside, a weight that his fight against Moha was made at according to the Dayton News. Evenly matched, the contest came to a sudden end when Graves hit low with a right-hand smash and was disqualified.

Moha now laid claim to the 145lbs title with little backing, while Graves, not satisfied in being disqualified, continued to see himself as the best man at the weight without any tangible support.
