In far better condition than his rival, Ireland took the fight to Johnson from the opening bell and in the second round, according to the Sporting Life, the latter was down again and again before making it to his stool.

On 19 December at catchweights, Ireland outpointed Darkey Wallace, another title claimant at 126lbs, over ten rounds at the same venue and a day later he was matched with Ted Marlow to decide the championship.
