Line 1: Line 1:
1899-10-27 (138lbs) [[Matty Matthews]] drew 25 [[Eddie Connolly]], Broadway AC, Manhattan, NYC, New York, USA. Referee: Johnny White. Made at 138lbs, Matthews put his title claim at the weight on the line against Connolly and was lucky to be given a draw. Connolly had dropped Matthews twice in the 15th round and was reckoned to be so far ahead at the close of the fight that punters were already paying out before the referee’s decision was announced. There was no doubt that it had been a tough contest, but the harder hitting had come from Connolly.
