1899-10-10 (124lbs) Eddie Santry w co 16 (25) Ben Jordan, Lenox AC, Manhattan, NYC, New York, USA. Referee: Charlie White. Although not an advertised title fight, Santry (119) took over Jordan’s title claim at 124lbs by his victory. The Englishman had looked a sure winner, despite being down in the first and second rounds, before a long right caught him flush on the jaw in the 16th and saw him counted out. Afterwards, Jordan (124) maintained that Santry scaled at least 131lbs and challenged the American to a return with a properly conducted weigh-in contracted.
