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

It was no surprise that Yanger challenged the world at the weight on winning.
