Line 1: Line 1:
1904-10-31 (126lbs) [[Spike Robson]] w rsc 10 (15) [[Jack Roberts]], NSC, Covent Garden, London, England. Referee: Billy Bell. Advertised for the English 126lbs title with world championship billing also being given in some fight reports, Roberts (126) tried to turn back the clock in this one, but after putting up a game display he was rescued by the referee in the tenth round. There was no doubt that Roberts had worried Robson (124) at times, especially when taking the fight to his rival, but after being dropped three times in the tenth and twice in earlier rounds time had finally run out for him.
