Line 1: Line 1:
23 October (92lbs) [[Bill Pincombe]] w pts 20 [[Joe O’Neill]], [[City Gym, Bradford]], England. Referee: [[Fred Best]]. With O’Neill credited as being the holder in a contest billed for the English 92lbs title, it was Pincombe who did all the forcing for round after round before walking away an easy winner. Although O’Neill was skilful at avoiding blows he did little scoring himself and after being dropped in the 11th it looked to be all over. However, he surprised many when winning the 15th, 16th and 17th rounds but had left it far too late, Pincombe being given the verdict after what was reported as a one-sided contest.

1899-10-23 (92lbs) Bill Pincombe w pts 20 Joe O’Neill, City Gym, Bradford, England. Referee: Fred Best. With O’Neill credited as being the holder in a contest billed for the English 92lbs title, it was Pincombe who did all the forcing for round after round before walking away an easy winner. Although O’Neill was skilful at avoiding blows he did little scoring himself, and after being dropped in the 11th it looked to be all over. However, he surprised many when winning the 15th, 16th and 17th rounds but had left it far too late, Pincombe being given the verdict after what was reported as a one-sided contest.

Pincombe does not appear to have made any defences, and after claims by Jack Morris (December 1901) and Fred Williams (September 1903) that seems to be it as far as the 92lbs class is concerned.
