1897-02-10 (115lbs) Patsy Haley w pts 20 Maxie Haugh, Walden AC, Buffalo, New York, USA. Referee: John Sherlan. Made at 115lbs, with both fighters inside, although Haley’s claim at the weight was automatically at stake he was never in any difficulty. In what was a clean and sporting contest, Haley forced Haugh on to the back foot from the opening bell to well earn the decision.
