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. Under pressure from the start, Smith (115) was dropped heavily twice in the second round before being rescued by the referee after getting up in a dazed state.
