1891-04-24 (142lbs) Charley Kemmick w co 3 (finish) Jim Scully, Twin City AC, Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA. Referee: Henry Sealey. Billed for the American 142lbs title, after a general feeling-out period in the opening round Kemmick (141½) got to work with the right hand in the second, and in the third after a few moments of sparring he sent Scully (142) down to be counted out.

Kemmick, who never really made his claim stick, died of consumption on 23 August 1895, aged 25.
