1907-03-01 (105lbs) Kid Murphy w pts 10 Johnny Coulon, Milwaukee AC, Public Service Building, Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA. Referee: Al Bright. Billed for the world 105lbs title, with both men inside, Coulon often electrified the crowd with his speed and brilliant work, but was not strong enough to subdue Murphy. Having spent the first eight rounds avoiding Murphy’s swinging blows it was not until the last two rounds that Coulon went on the attack, and by then it was too late.
