1903-03-28 (110lbs) Digger Stanley w pts 10 Jack Guyon, Wonderland, Mile End, London, England. Although it was not billed as involving the English 110lbs title, Stanley was advertised as the 110lbs champion and Guyon as the 108lbs titleholder. Both men gave of their best in what was a very fast fight but Stanley was always that bit ahead of Guyon and although he failed to drop the latter he produced the better work that entitled him to the decision.

Despite there being no more major fights at the weight for Stanley, he was still claiming the title in November 1907.
