1900-02-09 (133lbs) Joe Gans w rsc 14 (25) Spike Sullivan, Broadway AC, Manhattan, NYC, New York, USA. Recognised by the majority as an eliminator for the world 133lbs title, the winner to meet Frank Erne, Gans, who was undoubtedly the coloured champion at the weight at that moment in time, also took over Sullivan’s 133lbs title claim on winning. Although Sullivan gave a display of great endurance, being frequently on the floor, after going down from a right swing in the 14th the referee stopped it.
