1904-06-10 (148/150lbs) Young Peter Jackson w co 4 (15) Joe Walcott, Germania Maennerchor Hall, Baltimore, Maryland, USA. Following his victory over the 142lbs champion in a catchweight contest at 150lbs, Jackson (148) claimed the world title at both 148 and 150lbs. Up until the fourth round Walcott just about had the better of matters before a left to the body dropped him to be counted out, still trying to claim a foul.
