1901-08-19 (154lbs) Jack O’Brien w co 6 (15) Dido Plumb, Ginnett’s Circus, Newcastle, England. Referee: Ed Plummer. Billed for the British version of the world 154lbs title, O’Brien (153) was far too good for Plumb (152) and after punching it out in the opening two rounds with the latter and dropping him near the end of the third it was clear that his skill would ultimately win the day. In the fourth session Plumb took some heavy punishment as O’Brien began to open up with both hands and in the fifth although the Englishman came back strongly he could not find a way through his rival’s guard. The sixth saw Plumb continually tearing into O’Brien, but after several attempts to bring his man down had failed he was sent to the boards to be counted out, having taken several severe blows to the jaw.
