1898-12-31 (115lbs) Terry McGovern w rtd 14 (25) Austin Rice, Pelican AC, Brooklyn, NYC, New York, USA. Although I could find no title billing in the New York papers, with both men inside 115lbs McGovern successfully defended his claim at the weight when Rice was forced to quit after the 14th round, having been punched to a standstill. Earlier, McGovern had been floored in the 11th after forcing matters all the way.
