Line 1: Line 1:
1898-03-28 (102lbs) [[Harry McDermott]] w co 7 (20) [[Jack Guyon]], Standard Theatre, Gateshead, England. Referee: Ed Plummer. Billed for the English 102lbs title, neither man wasted much time in getting going, and although Guyon (101½) was much taller than McDermott (102) the latter looked very strong at the weight. The first six rounds saw Guyon picking up the points with some tidy boxing, but at the start of the seventh it was noticeable that McDermott meant business. Making a play for Guyon’s stomach and ribs finally produced dividends that McDermott took full advantage of when dropping the Londoner twice with rights to the jaw, the second occasion being for the full count.
