1900-05-04 (140lbs) [[Matty Matthews]] drew 10 [[Kid Parker]], Colorado AC, Denver, Colorado, USA. Referee: Billy Woods. Reported by the ''Rocky Mountain News'' to be a billed 142lbs welterweight title fight, Matthews had recently won the American 142lbs championship when beating [[Mysterious Billy Smith]] (w co 19 on 17 April at the Broadway AC, Manhattan, NYC, New York) and with both men inside the articled 140lbs his title claim at that weight was also up for grabs. In a short-distance fight, Parker proved to be a useful opponent for Matthews and even though he was dropped in the sixth round by a right swing to the jaw and a body shot he was soon back on his feet, shooting out jabs and punches, as if nothing had happened.
