1900-02-02 (124lbs) Kid Broad w co 13 (25) Joe Bernstein, Broadway AC, Brooklyn, NYC, New York, USA. Billed for the American 124lbs title. Having signed up to fight Dave Sullivan, when the latter pulled out at the last minute Broad met an out-of-condition Bernstein instead. The substitute took a terrific beating about the body before a hard left-right under the heart dropped him in the 13th and led to him being counted out. Clearly in some pain, Bernstein was unable to get up due to him breaking his left ankle.
