Line 1: Line 1:
19 October (100lbs) [[Harry McDermott]] w disq 15 (20) [[Ted Beach]], [[Standard Theatre, Gateshead]], England. Billed for the English 100lbs title, Beach had things very much his own way at the start when jabbing well, but eventually McDermott began to land solid blows to the body that changed the course of the fight. By the 11th McDermott was holding his own and in the 14th he was driving Beach all over the ring, punching away after the bell due to the noise of the crowd. At this stage it was all McDermott and halfway through the 15th a hard right to the head sent Beach to the boards, which was followed by the latter’s seconds jumping into the ring and getting their man disqualified. The result was slightly disappointing for McDermott as Beach would almost certainly have been counted out.
