1899-11-01 (96lbs) Tom Snow w co 11 (20) Frank Exall, New Adelphi Club, The Strand, London, England. Referee: Eugene Corri. Billed for the English 96lbs title, although Exall tried to force the pace throughout Snow was the stronger man, his heavy right-hand punching holding him in good stead. Having gone close on several occasions, Snow finally caught up with Exall, a left uppercut dropping the latter for the full count in the 11th.

After the fight Snow challenged the world at the weight.
