1893-10-09 (102lbs) [[Mike Small]] w disq 3 (20) [[Harry Brown]], Exchange Hall, Wolverhampton, England. Referee: Elkan Symons. Ignoring [[George Beach]]’s claim, this one was billed for the vacant English 102lbs title and by the second round it was clear that Brown (101¼) had no chance of winning after he had been dropped twice by heavy blows to head and body. Brown was certainly given more time to recover than he should have received after the first knockdown and when the police interfered he had even more time. However, in the third, Small (101¼), concentrating on the body, attacked Brown non-stop and although Brown continually claimed a foul the referee eventually disqualified the latter after one of his seconds jumped into the ring in protest. The title had become vacant after [[Pedlar Palmer]], due to meet Brown, realised he could not make the weight and relinquished his claim.
