1901-06-28 (138lbs) George Elbows McFadden w co 9 (15) Wilmington Jack Daly, Pyle Cycle Academy, Wilmington, Delaware, USA. Made at 138lbs, and billed for the world lightweight championship, Daly took on McFadden and probably wished that he had not when being knocked down three times in the third round. Coming out weak in the fourth Daly somehow picked himself up to get to the end of the eighth prior to being counted out just ten seconds into the ninth.
On winning, McFadden took over Daly’s claim at the weight to add to his own.
On 7 April 1902, at the National AC, New Britain, Connecticut, McFadden had been booked to meet Art Simms at 135lbs, but after Simms pulled out the day before with a badly damaged hand Curley Supples was substituted. Supples, who was thought to be inside 138lbs, was knocked down three times in the fifth round, whereupon the referee stopped the contest.
