1902-09-17 (138lbs) Joe Gans w co 5 (20) Gus Gardner, Eureka AC, Germania Maennerchor Hall, Baltimore, Maryland, USA. Referee: Charlie White. Billed for the 138lbs world title, Gardner was little more than a sparring partner, and after being floored frequently he was knocked out by Gans (134) two and a half minutes into round five. Gardner had no answer to Gans’ lefts to the body and rights to the jaw that consistently undid him.
