1892-09-29 (120lbs) Solly Smith drew 56 (finish) George Siddons, California AC, San Francisco, California, USA. Made at 120lbs the first 25 rounds saw a fair exhibition of boxing, but after that the contest disintegrated with barely a punch being thrown. Eventually, the referee called a halt to proceedings when he felt there was no likelihood of a winner emerging.
