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 hadn’t when being knocked down three times in the third round. Coming out weak in the fourth Daly somehow picked himself up to get the the end of the eighth before 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 on the day before Simms pulled out with a badly damaged hand and 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.
