1900-05-04 (142lbs) [[Matty Matthews]] drew 10 [[Kid Parker]], Athletic Club, Denver, Colorado, USA. 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 at the Broadway AC, Manhattan, NYC, New York on 17 April), and with both men inside the articled 140lbs his title claim at that weight was also up for grabs. Proving to be a useful opponent for Matthews, even though Parker 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.
