1906-07-28 (110lbs) Ginger Osborne w rtd 12 (20) Harry Slough, Lynn Street Circus, West Hartlepool, England. Billed for the English 110lbs title, both men being spot on the weight, it was a return match with Osborne’s previous victory making him a clear favourite. Slough was undoubtedly better conditioned this time round, leading easily on points up to the 11th round before weakening, while Osborne had merely been biding his time. Coming on strong in the 12th Osborne floored Slough with a right to the jaw, and after the latter had been put down twice more in the same session he was retired by his corner.

There appear to be no more fights at the weight in England for Osborne, it being thought that he might have gone back to South Africa.
