1899-02-06 (135lbs) Joe Gans w disq 10 (20) Billy Ernst, Olympic AC, Buffalo, New York, USA. Referee: John Kelly. With both men inside 135lbs Gans successfully negotiated his claim at the weight when he outboxed and outfought Ernst in virtually every round, while the latter fouled time and again. Having been warned several times by the referee, after Ernst deliberately butted Gans in the face in the tenth he was immediately disqualified.
