1905-03-21 (140lbs) Jimmy Gardner w pts 15 Charley Sieger, Lincoln AC, Chelsea, Massachusetts, USA. In yet another defence of his 140lbs ‘white’ title claim, Gardner won all the way against Sieger, landing his left jab where he pleased and using the latter as a punch bag without ever being able to knock him down. Although Sieger was badly hurt in the last round by a right to the jaw he managed to hold on until the final bell, having taken a terrible pounding throughout.
