1904-06-04 (146lbs) Jack Clancy w co 3 (20) Charlie Allum, Ginnett's Circus, Newcastle, England. Referee: Billy Bell. Billed for the world 146lbs title, it was scheduled for 20 rounds if you read the Sporting Life or 15 if you took the Mirror of Life. Right from the opening bell it was Clancy all the way, with Allum failing to keep his rival away and lacking the power to deter him. By the start of the third Clancy had inflicted heavy punishment on Allum, who was already palpably in distress, and after the latter was caught by a terrific blow to the body he slumped to the floor to be counted out on 1.50 mark.
