1892-07-08 (118lbs) Solly Smith w co 3 (finish) Dan Daly, Pacific AC, San Francisco, California, USA. Referee: Joe Goddard. Made at 118lbs, with both men inside, Smith successfully carried his title claim at the weight after starting fast and getting to his rival quickly with hurtful blows. In the third round, Daly, having been dropped by a right to the jaw, got up in a dazed state and fell down again before staggering to his corner only to be told that he had failed to beat the count.
