1900-02-27 (118lbs) Sailor Richardson w pts 20 Patsy Walsh, The Baths, Aldgate, London, England. Made at 118lbs, by the third round it was noted that Richardson was the harder puncher of the pair and from the halfway point, other than delivering a knockout blow Walsh was a beaten man. Richardson was happy to work both on the inside, where he pasted Walsh’s ribs or at distance with the jab, and apart from a few tough moments, especially in the last session, he was a clear winner on points. Although there was no title billing as such it was later recognised as involving an English championship claim for Richardson at the weight. Following Richardson’s victory, Pedlar Palmer was still seen in the main as the best 118lbs man in Britain, while Alf Greer (the winner of a championship competition when outpointing Jack Walker over six rounds at Wonderland, Mile End, London on 21 April), Llew Morgan (October), Harry Ware (January 1901), Bill Stonelake (who won a championship belt when knocking out Dick Parkes in three rounds at Wonderland on 5 January 1901) and Bill Fielder (January 1901) all claimed the English 118lbs title.
