1907-03-12 (105lbs) Johnny Coulon w rsc 8 (10) Young Fitzgerald, Green Valley AC, Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA. Referee: Mr Sharp. By dint of his recent draw against Kid Murphy, Fitzgerald was still laying claim to a portion of the 105lbs title, while Coulon was looking for a repeat victory. Prior to the finish Fitzgerald was going well, both men having hurt each other, but after he was unlucky to break his left arm in the eighth when blocking a Coulon power shot the referee was forced to stop the fight.
