1903-07-03 (142lbs) [[Joe Walcott]] w co 3 (10) [[Mose LaFontise]], Broadway Theatre, Butte, Montana, USA. Referee: Dunc MacDonald. Made at 142lbs, the ''Anaconda Standard'' reported that both men were inside the weight and once underway it was clear to see who would win after Walcott dropped LaFontise several times early on. Able to get inside his rival’s guard with apparent ease, Walcott rushed LaFontise at the start of the third round, swinging vicious punches to head and body, before a short right-arm blow to the solar plexus put the latter down and out.
