Made at 140lbs, Sullivan made a good start when having Verrall down in the second round but by the fourth the latter was doing all the fighting with the result looking a foregone conclusion. The end came in the fifth when Sullivan was counted out after being smashed to the floor by a right to the jaw. Following the contest the winner claimed the English title at the weight but failed to consolidate the position. On 6 May, Sam Powell challenged all England at 140lbs and Arthur Gutteridge won a championship competition at the weight when outpointing Andy Cannon over three rounds at the Royal Agricultural Hall, Islington, London on 31 May.
