1897-12-20 (150lbs) Tommy Ryan w co 3 (20) Bill Heffernan, Olympic AC, Buffalo, New York, USA. The Buffalo Courier reported this to be a defence of Ryan’s 150lbs world title claim. For two rounds the lanky Heffernan kept Ryan at bay before being dropped for ‘nine’ in the third and after being sent down again moments later he was counted out.
