1904-02-15 (146lbs) Jack Clancy w pts 15 Pat Daly, NSC, Covent Garden, London, England. Referee: J. H. Douglas. Billed for the world 146lbs title with four-ounce gloves the order of the day, the contest was too scrappy with too much holding to be considered top-notch. Although Clancy landed the harder, cleaner punches, especially in the fifth when he almost finished Daly off, there was little momentum throughout and the referee had to caution the men on a couple of occasions for foul play. Towards the end Daly came more and more into it it, but Clancy had made too much headway in previous rounds to be overhauled and he was unsurprisingly given the decision.
