1917-03-26 (145lbs) Jack Britton nd-l pts 10 Ted Kid Lewis, Queen City AC, Cincinnati, Ohio, USA. With the 145lbs title on the line the contest had been fairly even up until the eighth round, but Britton (145) had landed the cleaner blows and the left jab had gone especially well for him. Eventually opening up in the last three sessions, Britton came on to repeatedly shake Lewis (144) up with solid jabs and right crosses to take a clear advantage.
