1920-09-06 (145lbs) Jack Britton nd-w pts 10 Ray Bronson, The Open Air Arena, Cedar Point, Ohio, USA. Referee: Ollie Pecord. The Sandusky Register reported that both men made the required 145lbs for this one, thus putting Britton’s title on the line. Unfortunately for Bronson he was not the fighter of old, being made to look like a novice at times while Britton went through the motions, barely exerting himself and joking with the crowd. There was no doubt that Britton held back, but he enjoyed the workout.

Catchweight contests where Britton allowed his opponents to make 145lbs or less while he did not, came against Jack Perry (drew 12 at the Coliseum, Toledo, Ohio on 8 October), Morris Lux (nd-w pts 10 at the Convention Hall, Kansas City, Missouri on 18 November), Bud Logan (nd-w pts 10 at Beethoven Hall, San Antonio, Texas on 23 November) and Pinky Mitchell (nd-w pts 10 at the Auditorium, Milwaukee, Wisconsin on 6 December). Sandwiched between the last two contests for Britton was one against the local fighter, Jake Abel (w pts 10 at the Auditorium, Atlanta, Georgia on 29 November), that was contracted at 150lbs.
