1900-01-29 (140lbs) Matty Matthews w co 1 (20) Kid McPartland, Hercules AC, Brooklyn, NYC, New York, USA. McPartland was knocked out after 1.33 of the first, having been smashed to the canvas with great force. With both men inside 140lbs, Matthews, who defended his American title claim at the weight, was now looking for a crack at Mysterious Billy Smith to decide the 142lbs version of the championship.
