Although Dobbs scaled in the region of 142lbs, it is thought that Gans (135) who agreed to depose of his rival inside ten rounds or forfeit the purse, based his 138lbs American title claim on his victory. Although Dobbs was almost out in the ninth and tenth rounds he somehow stayed on to claim the forfeit before being retired.
