1903-05-02 (128lbs) [[Benny Yanger]] w pts 20 [[Kid Broad]], The Auditorium, Louisville, Kentucky, USA. Referee: Tim Hurst. Made at 128lbs, both men were gluttons for punishment and in a closely fought contest in which Yanger was the cleverest, his better work was deemed worthy of the decision. Broad finished in a groggy state and would surely have been knocked out had the bout lasted any longer.
