1907-01-01 (133lbs) [[Joe Gans]] w co 8 (finish) [[Kid Herman]], The Casino, Tonopah, Nevada, USA. Referee: Jack Welch. Billed for the world 133lbs title, with both men inside the weight, it was clear early on that Gans was merely biding his time as he jabbed, blocked and moved with ease. After speeding up in the sixth and seventh rounds, Gans crossed Herman with a straight left in the eighth and then delivered a crushing right swing to the jaw that sent the latter crashing to the canvas for a count out.
