1916-10-10 (116lbs) Johnny Ertle nd-drew 10 Joe Lynch, Pioneer SC, Manhattan, NYC, New York, USA. Made at 116lbs, Ertle (115) had a lot of trouble in dealing with the taller Lynch (116), who had he used his left lead more would surely have taken the ‘newspaper’ decision. In the sixth Ertle was left floundering and groggy, and it was only the title claimant’s overall aggression that kept him in the fight.
