Line 1: Line 1:
1900-05-26 (110lbs) [[Danny Dougherty]] w pts 20 [[Tommy Feltz]], Greenpoint AC, Brooklyn, NYC, New York, USA. Fast and clever throughout, according to the report in the ''Brooklyn Eagle'' there was never much between Feltz (105) and Dougherty (110) and at the end of the contest the latter’s 110lbs title claim was still intact. It was one of the most skilful contests seen at the venue, with many of the ringsiders feeling that neither man deserved to lose. There were no knockdowns according to the Eagle and it was close enough to warrant a return, the men being booked to meet at the same venue in early August.
