1897-01-30 (115lbs) Jimmy Barry drew 20 Sammy Kelly, Broadway AC, Brooklyn, NYC, New York, USA. Made at catchweights, Barry (108) and Kelly (115) boxed a scientific draw, with the latter showing much cleverness. Kelly had the longer reach and occasionally made it pay off, especially when dropping Barry for ‘nine’ in the fifth round with a tremendous left swing. Kelly was staggered in the 20th, but came firing back to earn the draw.

Immediately afterwards, Barry claimed the 115lbs title.
