1904-11-18 (138/140lbs) Jimmy Gardner w co 5 (10) Rube Smith, Athletic Club, Denver, Colorado, USA. Made at 135lbs, and belonging to Gardner’s 138/140lbs ‘white’ title claim, Smith started strongly, knocking the title claimant down in the second round with a right to the body. That was to be the last of his successes, as Gardner came back strongly to have all the best of it prior to knocking Smith out with a cracking right in the fifth.
