6 March (115lbs) Johnny Coulon w rsc 19 (20) Jim Kenrick, Louisiana Auditorium, New Orleans, Louisiana, USA. Billed for the 115lbs championship, just two weeks after the pair met at 112lbs, both men were inside the weight and on the result Coulon took his title claim back into the bantam class. Although doing well for several rounds, Kenrick was soon under pressure when bewildered by Coulon’s speed and after being put down by a right to the body in the 19th he was rescued by the referee in the act of rising.
