Line 1: Line 1:
1889-11-2 (100lbs) [[Bill Bolton]] w co 16 (finish) [[Jack Tyson]], Social Club, Kennington, London, England. With both men inside 100lbs, this fight was looked upon as being for the English title at the weight, especially as they had repeatedly challenged [[Tom De Groat]] to no avail. After some hard fighting, Bolton began to get on top and put the tiring Tyson down twice in the 14th round and four times in the 16th before a tremendous right-left saw the latter counted out. It was a great win for Bolton, but he soon moved on.
