1901-01-01 (110lbs) Ike Cohe w co 1 (20) Alf Hazlegrove, Gymnastic Club, Stalybridge, England. Starting in tricky fashion Hazlegrove tried to bamboozle Cohen, but the latter soon had the upper hand and after crossing with a right to the jaw the local man was counted out early in the first round.

Having claimed the English 110lbs title on his victory, Cohen was unable to take advantage due to weight-making problems and just seven weeks later he was boxing at 112lbs.
