1902-05-23 (126lbs) Young Corbett w pts 10 Kid Broad, Colorado AC, Denver, Colorado, USA. Referee: George English. Recent research, using the Chicago Tribune, found that the fight was billed for the 126lbs title with both men inside the weight at the 3pm weigh-in. In a tough contest there were surprisingly no knockdowns, and although Corbett was groggy in the tenth he recovered well to make it to the bell. If nothing else, Broad dispelled any thoughts that Corbett should be seen as a superman.

In a catchweight no-decision contest on 7 October at the Industrial Hall, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Corbett outscored Eddie Lenny over six rounds according to the press. The Oshkosh Daily Northwestern actually reported it to be a title defence.
