1902-07-24 (135lbs) Joe Gans w co 15 (20) Rufe Turner, Acme Club, Oakland, California, USA. In a match made at 135lbs, Turner, who was half a pound over the weight with Gans said to be spot on, was outclassed and having been down twice in the fourth, once in the 14th and twice in the 15th he was counted out following the second knockdown in that round. Had Turner won it would have been Gans’ 138lbs title claim he would have got his hands on.
