Line 1: Line 1:
13 February (110lbs) [[Billy Plimmer]] w pts 10 [[Charlie Mansford]], [[Social Club, Kennington, London]], England. Made at 110lbs and the final of an English 110lbs championship competition, it was a very clever contest in which both men showed a lot of class. Although Plimmer picked his punches well, scoring with straight left counters as Mansford came in with the right, there was never a lot between them. After all three judges voted in favour of Plimmer, the latter got ahead of [[Bill Collins]] and [[Nunc Wallace]], who were challenging all England at that time.
