1888-09-13 (135lbs) Billy Myer w pts 20 Danny Needham, Washington Rink, Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA. Referee: John Mann. Contested in skin-tight gloves under MoQ Rules, Myer (133¾) generally forced the fight and had Needham (134½) groggy in the 11th without being able to finish him off. There were no clean knockdowns, but towards the end Needham went down frequently in order to avoid punishment.
