25 April (115lbs) Johnny Coulon nd-l pts 10 Frankie Burns, Marathon AC, Brooklyn, NYC, New York, USA. Despite a lack of billing both men were inside 115lbs, thus leaving Coulon’s title claim at risk, and only the latter’s generalship saved him. The hard-punching Burns dropped Coulon with a right swing in the second, but was continually tied up when looking to land heavy shots.
