1900-08-04 (108lbs) Danny Dougherty w pts 25 Tommy Feltz, Greenpoint AC, Brooklyn, NYC, New York, USA. Billed for the American 108lbs title, and a return contest, although Dougherty made the weight, with Feltz being some four ounces over he was forced to pay the forfeit. Even faster than their previous fight at the club, the men were at each other continuously, Dougherty just about keeping ahead before finishing strongly to earn the decision.

Having already laid claim to the American 110lbs title, this would be Dougherty's last fight at the weight. It also seems to be Feltz’s last fight at 108lbs.
