1905-03-27 (104lbs) Mark Verrall w pts 10 Frank Morcombe, NSC, Covent Garden, London, England. Not given title billing and not over the championship distance, Verrall (104lbs) claimed the English 104lbs title following his win before moving up in weight in April 1906. There was never much between them, and although Morcombe (103½) stubbornly disputed every point it was Verrall’s left-hand work that carried the day.
