1899-05-05 (138lbs) Kid McPartland w co 5 (25) Jack Bennett, Broadway AC, Manhattan, NYC, New York, USA. Made at 138lbs, this was another defence of McPartland’s American title claim at the weight and although Bennett was clever he was unable to do too much damage. The end came when Bennett sunk to the floor to be counted out at 2.25 of the fifth after taking a heavy left hook to the body.
