1916-03-22 (145lbs) Jack Britton nd-w pts 15 Kid Graves, Gymnastic Club, Dayton, Ohio, USA. Made at 145lbs, according to the Sandusky Star Journal Britton took nine of the rounds, jabbing away constantly with his left and occasionally crossing rights to the jaw. As far as the paper was concerned, Graves managed to win just two sessions.

With both fighter's championship claims on the line, while Britton would go on to fight Ted Kid Lewis for the title in his next contest any claim that Graves felt he had a right to disintegrated.
