1908-02-10 (108lbs) [[Albert Cocksedge]] w pts 15 [[Harry McDermott]], Ginnett’s Circus, Newcastle, England. Billed for the English 108lbs title, although not reported as such both men agreed that they had made 108lbs for the contest. For the first six rounds Cocksedge bewildered McDermott with his hand speed and even when the latter picked up somewhat he had little success. Apart from the seventh when he hurt Cocksedge the South Shields man lacked both the pace and the stamina to turn the fight around and went down on points by a fair margin.
