1900-08-14 (115lbs) Johnny Reagan w pts 20 Casper Leon, Seaside AC, Brooklyn, NYC, New York, USA. Made at 115lbs, and pitted against a lad who was once top of the fistic tree, this was a defence of Reagan’s title claim at the weight. Although still clever, with Leon being just a shadow of his former self he took a heavy drubbing at the hands of Reagan in the latter rounds without dipping over.
