1898-12-07 (126lbs) Tommy White w pts 20 Billy Moore, Monarch AC, Syracuse, New York, USA. Referee: Yank Sullivan. According to the Buffalo Courier this was a billed 126lbs American title fight with both men putting on a real show for the purists, with left jabs and all-round skills being the order of the day. Moore, who for all of his inexperience proved to be a very clever youngster, would have learned much from the fight in terms of ring generalship.
