1899-12-01 (124lbs) Joe Bernstein w co 1 (25) Dave Wallace, Broadway AC, Brooklyn, NYC, New York, USA. Referee: Charlie White. Regarded as a 124lbs world title fight by many despite a lack of billing, the Mirror of Life reported that the kayo result looked to have been the result of a ‘dive’ by Wallace, who went down three times before being knocked out by a straight left after both men had agreed to split the purse.
