1903-02-26 (130lbs) Young Corbett drew 20 Eddie Hanlon, Mechanics’ Pavilion, San Francisco, California, USA. Referee: Ed Graney. Billed for the world 130lbs featherweight title, with both men inside the weight, Hanlon did well but Corbett was always fighting strongly. From the seventh round onwards it was give and take, and at times both men were on ‘Queer Street’ before recovering well.
