26 March (116lbs) Monte Attell w pts 15 Harry Dell, Dreamland Pavilion, San Francisco, California, USA. Defending his 116lbs title claim, Attell was Dell’s master throughout, cutting him up and closing both of his eyes. Surprisingly, Attell was actually put down in fifth round by a left to the jaw, but Dell was too weak to follow it up.

On 6 May Attell outpointed Jockey Bennett over six rounds at 116lbs at the Wheelmens’ Club, Oakland, California in preparation for his coming contest at that weight against Johnny Coulon on 12 June. Unfortunately, Coulon called the fight off on 7 June and Attell was matched against Frankie Neil a week later.
