1892-08-08 (124lbs) George Siddons drew 42 (finish) Eddie Pierce, Coney Island AC, Brooklyn, NYC, New York, USA. Referee: Al Smith. Made at 124lbs, with Siddons (120) defending his American title claim at the weight, although being dropped in the eighth round he eventually made something of a comeback to even things up with Pierce (120). However, as the fight wore on, with neither man doing too much damage and it becoming monotonous the referee declared a draw at the end of the 42nd because it was getting too late for the crowd to leave for home.
