1901-01-07 (124lbs) Tim Callahan w co 15 (25) Oscar Gardner, Esoteric Club, Boston, Massachusetts, USA. With both men inside 124lbs, Callahan eliminated one of his greatest rivals at the weight when knocking Gardner out in the 15th round after catching him with a right to the body followed by a left swing to the jaw. Throughout the contest Callahan used the left jab to soften Gardner up and the latter took heavy punishment, especially in the third and sixth sessions when he was dropped by solid lefts. He was also badly marked.
