1899-05-15 (124lbs) George Dixon w pts 20 Kid Broad, Olympic AC, Buffalo, New York, USA. Referee: Ed McBride. While this fight did not receive title billing, it enhanced Dixon’s claim at 124lbs when he just about got home against Broad after the latter hurt his left arm. Prior to the injury, Broad had forced the fight for the first 11 rounds and looked to be on the way to a good win.
