8 January (105lbs) Johnny Coulon w pts 10 Kid Murphy, Weast Pavilion, Peoria, Illinois, USA. Billed for the world 105lbs title, Coulon gained the advantage in every round but the first, being superior at range with the left jab or inside when working on the kidneys. He also showed much cleverness as well as a willingness to mix it when he had to, and ran out a clear winner.
