1908-03-17 Tommy Burns w co 1 (20) Jem Roche, Theatre Royal, Dublin, Ireland - WORLD. Referee: Robert Watson. As soon as the fight began it could be seen that the challenger would be out of his depth and after Burns feinted his left and shot over a right to the jaw Roche went crashing on to his face to be counted out at 1.28 of the opening session.
