1902-09-27 (106lbs) Charlie Exall w disq 8 (10) Harry McDermott, Ginnett’s Circus, Newcastle, England. Referee: Sam Francis. With only two-minute rounds stipulated and no title billing, McDermott appeared well on top when he was badly cut by a head butt and exited the ring feeling that Exall would be disqualified. Unfortunately for McDermott, the referee did not agree, being left with no other option than to disqualify him.

Although Exall’s English 106lbs title claim was left intact he moved up in class shortly after.
