4 November (106lbs) [[Charlie Exall]] w co 6 (20) [[Matt Precious]], [[Ginnett’s Circus, Newcastle]], England. Referee: [[Ed Plummer]]. Billed for the English 106lbs title held by Precious (104), Exall (104) made most of the running and in the second round he opened a cut above his rival’s left eye. Keeing up the pressure, Exall dropped Precious with a terrific right to the jaw and although the latter got up the end was in sight. From thereon, Exall worked the body and in the sixth it paid off when a solid left to the ribs sent Precious down to be counted out while on one knee.
