1891-12-29 (132lbs) Austin Gibbons w rsc 48 (finish) Andy Bowen, Metropolitan Club, New Orleans, Louisiana, USA. Referee: John Duffy. Made at 132lbs with both men inside, it was a light-hitting, tame affair up until the 20th round when it began to warm up. The fight came to a halt in the 48th session after the referee rescued Bowen, who was writhing in agony on the ropes after being badly hurt by a body punch.

Despite Gibbons continuing to claim the championship at 132lbs he never made the weight again.
