1904-06-13 (128lbs) [[Aurelio Herrera]] w co 8 (20) [[Benny Yanger]], The Arena, Butte, Montana, USA. Referee: Dunc MacDonald. Contested at 128lbs, by the end of the seventh most of the money was on Yanger, who had controlled the fight up until then against the shell-like Herrera. However, in the eighth everything changed. A right to the jaw shook Yanger up and following a whole range of blows to head and body he slumped to the floor. Somehow up at ‘nine’, Yanger was a sitting duck for Herrera and a well directed right to the jaw smashed him down for the full count.
