1899-03-14 (115lbs) Terry McGovern w co 18 (25) Patsy Haley, Lenox AC, Manhattan, NYC, New York, USA. Referee: Charlie White. Made at 115lbs, despite a lack of title billing McGovern successfully defended his claim at the weight after knocking Haley out with a crushing right hook, following a fierce body and head bombardment. Haley, who was on the defensive throughout, had been down three times in the fourth, and once in the sixth, 15th and 17th.
