1886-11-15 (140lbs) Bill Natty drew 12 Pat Condon, Paradise Street School of Arms, Lambeth, London, England. Articled at 140lbs for Harry Clarke’s and J. Nanson’s English championship belt, neither man could find a finishing punch, with Condon doing his best work to the body while Natty concentrated on the head and without a knockdown in sight the judges decided on a draw. Although both men gave it everything they had, the result proved nothing and Jim Kendrick continued to be seen as the leading British fighter at the weight. Meanwhile, Jim Hayes challenged any man in the world at 140lbs in April.
