1906-02-22 (120/122lbs) [[Abe Attell]] w pts 15 [[Jimmy Walsh]], Lincoln AC, Pythian Rink, Chelsea, Massachusetts, USA. Referee: Jack Sheehan. Billed for the American 120lbs title, with both men inside, Attell was far too fast and clever to be caught by Walsh, who ended badly cut about the face, and boxed his way to an easy win despite lacking a punch that would have ended the fight early.
