1892-12-15 (142lbs) Mysterious Billy Smith w co 14 (finish) Danny Needham, Pacific AC, San Francisco, California, USA. Referee: Walter Watson. Although no title billing was given in the San Francisco Chronicle, by his victory Smith (142) staked his claim at the weight after starting round 14 like a whirlwind and dropping Needham (143) twice before knocking him out following a tremendous right-hand uppercut. The contest was held at the Wigwam Theatre.
