1907-05-03 Mike Schreck w co 12 (finish) Tony Ross, Gymnastic Club, Dayton, Ohio, USA. With both men scaling around 180lbs, Schreck drew first blood, jabbing well to the head, and although many early rounds were slow it came to life in the 11th with Ross, tiring fast, being chased around the ring. In the 13th Schreck dropped Ross for ‘seven’ with a punch to the neck and when the latter got to his feet he was quickly sent to the floor again by a swinging right hook to be counted out. This was seen to be a defence of Schreck’s American title.
