1894-10-31 (128lbs) Bill Corbett w co 15 (20) Johnny Ryan, Percy Street Cottage, Newcastle, England. Referee: Nicol Brady. Although billed for the English 128lbs championship, the monetary reward was not large enough for general consent to be given. Regardless of that, Corbett fought in a careful manner, landing with both hands to head and body, and had Ryan down in both the third and fourth rounds. Outclassed throughout, Ryan fought in a game and determined manner for the next eight sessions and even landed heavily with his right at times, but in the 15th a right to the head from Corbett knocked him out of time. Next came Charlie Tilley who won a 128lbs championship competition when outpointing Ted Gamble over four rounds at the Central Hall, Holborn, London on 17 November. This was the second time the pair had met inside a month. Meanwhile, Jim Curran (January 1896), Tom Causer (February 1896), Alf Garrett (September 1896), Harry Greenfield (February 1897) and Ben Clark (February 1897) challenged all England.
