Announced as being for the English 136lbs title and deservedly so, despite most of the national press disputed the billing, Nelson started well winning the opening round due to better style and superior power. In the second Maloney resorted to butting and clinching and having continued in the third where he left off he was disqualified. Years later, in the South Wales Gazette on 31 March 1937, it was stated that Frank Guest had won the English 136lbs title from Nelson, but no such match can be traced.
