19 November (115lbs) Terry McGovern w co 10 (25) Tim Callahan, Greenwood AC, Brooklyn, NYC, New York, USA. With both fighters inside 115lbs and seen as a defence of McGovern’s claim at the weight, Callahan did all the leading up until the seventh round before being pursued around the ring after becoming groggy from body punches. In the tenth, Callahan was dropped twice and counted out, the finishing blow being a right-hand swing to the jaw.
