1903-03-24 (118lbs) Harry Forbes w co 9 (10) Johnny Kelly, Missouri AC, Vineyard’s Hall, Kansas City, Missouri, USA. Made at 118lbs and billed for the title at that weight, in what was a bruising contest Kelly was down twice in the third round and was saved by the bell at the end of the eighth before being knocked out by a right hook in the next session.

Forbes was now claiming the American title at 116 and 118lbs while over the water Jim Williams (May 1903) was challenging all England to decide the 118lbs championship.
