1906-04-23 (140lbs) Jack Goldswain w pts 20 Jabez White, NSC, Covent Garden, London, England. Referee: Tom Scott. Billed for the English and Imperial British Empire 140lbs titles, Goldswain (138½) stood tall at the opening bell while White (140) assumed a crouching stance when looking to target the body. Although there were no knockdowns it was an interesting clash of styles as both men tried to find a way forward, it being extremely even up until the 16th round. It was here that Goldswain went to the front, proving too fast for White, hitting the target with good, straight scoring punches to earn the verdict.

Now generally seen as the leading man at the weight in Britain, other men who wanted to join the title argument included Bill Wood and Bob Russell.
