1907-01-18 (110lbs) Joe Percival w pts 10 Joe Donnelly, Ginnett’s Circus, Newcastle, England. Referee: Tom Murphy. Made at 110lbs, and the second meeting between the pair, it was a clever exhibition of boxing in which neither man came to trouble. Although Donnelly had looked a good winner, after the judges had disagreed on the verdict the casting vote of the referee was in favour of Percival, who claimed the English title at the weight.
