1907-01-18 (110lbs) Joe Percival w pts 10 Joe Donnelly, Ginnett’s Circus, Newcastle, England. Referee: Tom Murphy. Made at 110lbs this was the second meeting between the pair and following a clever exhibition of boxing, in which neither man came to trouble, the result was a draw.

Although Donnelly had looked a good winner after the judges had disagreed on the verdict, Percival winning on the casting vote of the referee, it was the latter who claimed the English title at the weight.
