1900-01-08 (138lbs) [[Matty Matthews]] w rsc 12 (25) [[Izzy Strauss]], Hercules AC, Brooklyn, NYC, New York, USA. Referee: Johnny Eckhardt. Made at catchweights with both men inside 138lbs, Matthews’ title claim at that weight was automatically at stake, and having led the latter a merry dance in earlier rounds the smaller Strauss began to go to ground to avoid punishment. In the 12th Strauss was almost all in, his legs giving way on four occasions, the final instance seeing the referee call it off after asking him whether he wanted to continue and getting a negative response.
