1904-07-25 (140lbs) Harry Mansfield drew 15 Jim Courtney, Welsh NSC, Cardiff, Wales. Referee: Ed Plummer. Billed for the English 140lbs title, it was Courtney who had the best of the opening few sessions before Mansfield began to gradually wear him down. Several times Mansfield brought Courtney to the floor with solid right hands to the head, but Courtney always came back strongly and fully deserved a share of the decision. Contested over two-minute rounds, the result proved nothing.
