1898-09-14 George Byers w pts 20 Frank Childs, Lenox AC, Manhattan, NYC, New York, USA. Referee: Charlie White. Billed for the ‘black’ title, with Childs’ claim on the line, Byers made a good start and had his rival bleeding badly from damage to the left eye in the fourth round caused by a succession of left jabs. Continuing to play on the injury, Byers moved ahead as Childs, whose eye was closed shut as the fight moved along, held on to reach the final bell after failing to find a finishing blow.
