21 February (108lbs) [[Jim Kenrick]] w pts 20 [[Charlie Exall]], [[Ginnett’s Circus, Newcastle]], England. Referee: [[Billy Bell]]. In a return contest billed for the English 108lbs title, Kenrick (110) came in two pounds over the weight, thus allowing Exall (106) to hold on to his claim. Regardless of that, Kenrick made sure of the verdict this time when taking the fight to Exall from the fourth round onwards with powerful work from both hands. Nevertheless, Exall stuck to the task in hand, showing great gameness and the ability to land solidly with the left even though he was up against it, and held on to the final bell.
