1904-07-22 (140lbs) Jimmy Gardner w rtd 5 (20) Willie Fitzgerald, Silver Bow AC, Butte, Montana, USA. Referee: Dunc MacDonald. According to the Anaconda Standard, this was a fight that would settle the 140lbs ‘white’ title. With that in mind, Gardner (139) wasted no time in getting to Fitzgerald (134), having him down three times in the fourth round. Fitzgerald was quickly under attack in the fifth, and after being caught by a terrific right uppercut and going down again his corner retired him.
