18 December (112lbs) [[Con Donovan]] w co 11 (finish) [[Jack Hullett]], [[Hop & Malt Exchange, The Borough, London]], England. Although no weights were given, later gossip stated this to be a defence of Donovan’s English 112lbs title claim with both inside eight stone. Donovan looked the most dangerous of the pair and before too long Hullett’s eyes were damaged and beginning to close rapidly. Many of the sessions were well contested, but in the 11th Hullett ran into a solid left and following some work to his body he was counted out after being hit by a crunching blow to the head. However, no more is heard from Donovan at the weight.
