1898-05-30 (110lbs) Jimmy Barry drew 20 Casper Leon, Lenox AC, Manhattan, NYC, New York, USA. Billed for the world 110lbs title, Barry (109), reported to be the holder, did all the forcing while Leon (106) boxed a clever fight without ever threatening to put his man away. Although nearly spent at the finish Leon was still standing, the draw under the terms of the contract distinctly favouring him.
