25 February (102lbs) [[Jack Pearson]] w pts 20 [[Mike Small]], [[NSC, Covent Garden, London]], England. Referee: [[Bernard J. Angle]]. Billed for the English 102lbs title and contested in four-ounce gloves, Pearson (102), who had been boxing less than two years, had Small (101) down twice in the second round before the latter came back gamely from the sixth onwards. Despite being cautioned for low blows, Small seemed to be on top from the 16th, but according to the judges he just failed to make up the necessary points by the final bell. Surprisingly, Pearson virtually retired after this bout before coming back in 1897, weighing 116lbs.
