Contested in four-ounce gloves, within a couple of rounds it was clearly obvious that Curley was going to win, and after storming the third he caught up with the overmatched Sullivan in the fourth, knocking him out with a right to the jaw. Despite there being no title billing, Curley claimed the English 112lbs title but was soon boxing at a higher weight.
