1894-04-27 (160lbs) Dan Creedon w co 9 (20) Dick Moore, Twin City AC, Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA. Referee: Sandy Griswold. Billed for the 160lbs middleweight championships of Australia and America, Moore stepped in after Bob Fitzsimmons had refused to meet Creedon for such a small monetary reward. Contested at a brisk pace, by the seventh round it could be seen that Creedon (160) was getting on top, especially with Moore’s left eye closed. In the eighth, Moore (157) was put down by a short right to the face and saved by the bell before being dropped again by a similar blow in the ninth. Getting to his feet quickly Moore rushed at Creedon, only to be caught by a left uppercut to the jaw that sent him to the floor for the full count.
