6 April James J. Jeffries w co 1 (10) Jack Finnegan, Light Guard Armory, Detroit, Michigan, USA - WORLD. Referee: George Siler. Only scheduled for ten rounds, Jeffries did not even know who his opponent was until three days before the fight, with little or no media coverage whatsoever, but it was not an exhibition bout either. As a warm up for his forthcoming defence against James J. Corbett, the champion wasted little time in scoring a 55-second kayo win, flooring Finnegan twice before knocking him out with a left to the body.
