1899-10-23 (130lbs) [[Loudon Campbell]] w disq 6 (25) [[Denny Gallagher]], Rockport AC, Cleveland, Ohio, USA. Referee: Ed McKean. Despite both men being inside 128lbs according to the ''Cleveland Plain Dealer'', this should be seen as involving Campbell’s 130lbs title claim. At no stage was Gallacher a match for Campbell, fouling him repeatedly for which the referee gave numerous warnings prior to throwing him out, and had the latter gone for the kayo rather than pretty work he would surely have won earlier.
