Line 1: Line 1:
1907-12-02 Tommy Burns w co 10 (20) Gunner Moir, NSC, Covent Garden, London, England - WORLD. Referee: Eugene Corri. Billed for the undisputed world heavyweight championship (Jack Johnson would have had something to say about that), Burns (177) was far too good for the Englishman, whether it be boxing or landing solidly, and apart from the fourth round he was on top all the way. Badly cut over the right eye in the fifth and nearly put out in the ninth, Moir (204) was in a bad way and when Burns dropped him three times in the tenth he was unable to make it to his feet after the third knockdown, being counted out. Away from the ring for over 16 months, Moir lost his English (which had been renamed as British on 11 February 1909 when the NSC introduced the eight named weight divisions) title to Iron Hague by a first-round kayo at the NSC on 19 April of that year.
