2 June (102lbs) Jimmy Barry w rtd 10 (25) Jimmy Gorman, Olympic Club, New Orleans, Louisiana, USA. Referee: Lloyd Gerhardt. Billed for the world 102lbs title, with Gorman labelled the holder, Barry took over as American champion after knocking his rival down several times in the ninth and tenth rounds before the towel was thrown in. Prior to the ninth it had been hard fought and well contested. This would be the last time that Barry would make the weight and he quickly moved back among the 105lbs men.
