1900-04-21 (115lbs) Clarence Forbes w rsc 2 (20) Jimmy Smith, Crescent AC, Toronto, Canada. Referee: Jack Bennett. Billed for the Canadian open 115lbs title, Forbes (113), having substituted for his brother Harry, would have undoubtedly had his world title claim at risk in this one. Smith (115), who was up against it from the start, was dropped heavily twice in the second round, and on getting up in a dazed state was rescued by the referee.
