1901-06-28 (124lbs) Tim Callahan w pts 20 Joe Bernstein, Mechanics’ Pavilion, San Francisco, California, USA. With both men inside 122lbs, this was a successful defence of Callahan’s 124lbs American title claim. Despite being knocked down three times from rights to the jaw, Bernstein used the jab well while looking good on the inside. However, he was unable to keep the oncoming Callahan at bay for long.
