1916-04-24 Jimmy Wilde w rtd 11 (20) Johnny Rosner, The Stadium, Liverpool, England - GB/IBU. Referee: Eugene Corri. Billed for the world 112lbs title, the brave Rosner proved no match for the brilliant Wilde and was finally rescued when his corner threw in the towel. At no time did Rosner look like winning, despite him being a solid puncher, and cut over the left eye and taking a solid beating in almost every round it was a miracle that he managed to remain upright.
