1904-12-03 (140lbs) Jack Nelson w pts 20 Harry Greenfield, Ginnett’s Circus, Newcastle, England. Referee: Billy Bell. Billed for the English 140lbs title, it was Nelson (140) who did the lion’s share of the work despite being unable to drop Greenfield (138½) who appeared out of condition. While showing a cunning defence, Greenfield did very little else before being outscored by a wide margin.
