1897-11-24 (135lbs) Jack Daly w co 19 (20) Billy Ernst, Greenpoint AC, Brooklyn, NYC, New York, USA. Reported to be for the world 135lbs title in some quarters, with both men inside Daly forced the fight, flooring Ernst in the sixth and twice in the 19th before knocking him out with a right swing to the jaw moments later. Daly would only make 135lbs one more time.
