1904-04-22 (142lbs) [[Honey Mellody]] w rsc 4 (6) [[Martin Duffy]], Battery ‘D’ Club, Chicago, Illinois, USA. Referee: Abe Pollock. Although only a six rounder, the ''Boston Post'' reported that with Mellody inside 142lbs, the ‘white’ welter title changed hands following the result. Articled at 142lbs, Duffy (147½), who looked ill trained and out of condition, was toppled for a count of ‘nine’ in the fourth before getting up to be rescued by the referee when deemed to be defenceless. Duffy had taken a bad beating throughout and the decision was seen to be sensible.
