Billed for the English 114lbs title, following two rounds of lengthy sparring Tokell (113) started to force matters in the third and although Corfield (115) was proving tricky on his feet he was dropped by a swinging right to the head. On getting to his feet, Corfield dropped down again before the bell came to his rescue.
