1908-02-17 (104lbs) Charlie Dew w pts 15 Joe Percival, Ginnett’s Circus, Newcastle, England. Referee: Tom Murphy. Billed for the English 104lbs title, the opening four rounds saw Dew (104) scoring repeatedly with the left, and while Percival (102) concentrated on the inside he was unable to bring the Londoner down. In the seventh it was Percival who was putting his punches together better, but regardless of his efforts he was always one step behind Dew, the latter’s win being fully merited.

Having had trouble with the weight, and never making 104lbs again, by May Dew was featured in the Mirror of Life as being the 106lbs English champion, a title he appears not to have defended.
