1891-06-15 (107lbs) [[Alf Gunning]] drew 25 (finish) [[Ted Gamble]], Ormonde Club, Walworth, London, England. Referee: George Dunning. Made at catchweights, although Gunning was fought down in the second and 17th rounds he claimed the English 107lbs title on the grounds that he was on top when the bout was stopped well after midnight. The contest was a vicious affair all the way through and despite Gunning having a good ten-pound pull in the weights Gamble met him blow for blow right up until the 23rd when he weakened badly. At the end of that session the referee gave both men a couple more rounds for one of them to end the contest decisively and when that failed to happen, with the time showing 1am in the morning, he brought matters to an end.
