Line 1: Line 1:
1891-06-24 (90lbs) [[Harry Munro]] w co 10 (finish) [[Jim Collins]], London, England. Referee: Frank Carew. Billed for the world and English 90lb titles in two-ounce gloves, and held somewhere in the east end of London, Collins set a very fast pace right through to the end of the ninth. During that period, Collins frequently rushed in to close quarters but found Munro content to defend himself and bide his time. At the start of the tenth, Munro, looking the fresher of the pair, received the word to go, immediately shaking Collins with a solid right to the head before following it up with some hurricane fighting. At this point Collins was at Munro’s mercy, and after taking a solid left under the heart, followed by another right to the jaw, he crashed down to be counted out.
