4 March (106lbs) Kid Veitch w pts 20 Charlie Exall, Standard Theatre, Gateshead, England. Referee: Mr Mansell. Billed for the English 106lbs title, in the first six rounds Veitch held the advantage on points before being hurt in the seventh by solid straight lefts, but came back strongly to drop Exall twice in the 13th. Following that it was nearly all Exall, who had Veitch over in the 17th, and although he did plenty of good work from thereon it was not enough to wipe out the deficit.
