1899-08-29 (114/115lbs) Clarence Forbes w co 11 (20) Con Suffield, Saengerbund Auditorium, Dubuque, Iowa, USA. Referee: George Siler. Although the fight was billed as being for the 114lbs championship of the West, it also involved Forbes’ American title claim at 115lbs. After taking his time Forbes eventually started to force matters in the tenth, and halfway through the following session, with Suffield at his mercy, he crashed home a heavy right that sent the latter through the ropes to be counted out.
