Line 1: Line 1:
30 March (100lbs) [[Harry McDermott]] w pts 20 [[Jack Maloney]], [[Albert Hall, Jarrow]], England. Referee: [[J. T. Hulls]]. Billed for the English 100lbs title, it was a fairly close affair with both men scoring well at times, but towards the end it was McDermott (98½) who was given the decision. Westminster’s Maloney (99½) had not helped his cause much by going on the back foot in the last few rounds and, ultimately, it was that tactic which counted against him.
