1902-05-24 (140lbs) Tom Couhig w pts 20 Martin Duffy, Crescent AC, Mutual Street Rink, Toronto, Canada. Referee: Frank Passmore. In a clever contest in which Duffy had height and reach over his opponent, Couhig overcame that disadvantage by sheer aggression to earn the decision.

Following this defence of his 140lb American title claim, Couhig moved up in weight.
