Line 1: Line 1:
1 August (112lbs) [[Boyo Driscoll]] w disq 10 (20) [[Owen Moran]], [[Queens Hall, Cardiff]], Wales. Referee: [[Joe Smith]]. Despite being billed for the English 112lbs title according to the Sporting Life, the winner received no recognition as such due to the fight being contested over two-minute rounds. This was supported by an article in the 3 September issue of the ''Mirror of Life'', stating that Moran was still the recognised English champion regardless of the fact that he would soon be boxing in a higher weight division. Further discreditation came when ''The Sportsman'' reported the contest to be a mere ten rounder. The fight itself saw Driscoll forcing matters for the first eight rounds before Moran came back in hard-hitting fashion, only to go low once too often for the referee’s liking.
