16 June (112lbs) Dave Sullivan w co 9 (12) Joe Elms, Suffolk AC, Boston, Massachusetts, USA. Elms had the best of it for nearly nine rounds until Sullivan got in a chance blow to knock his man out. Although the contest was made at 112lbs, Sullivan, who scaled less than 110lbs, claimed the American title at the lesser weight but made no defences as such.
