29 April (105lbs) Johnny Coulon w rsc 9 (10) Tommy Scully, Cubs AC, Waukegan, Illinois, USA. Advertised in the Fort Wayne Journal-Gazette as a championship match at 115lbs it was a misprint and should have been 105lbs, thus putting Coulon’s title claim at the weight on the line. Scully did reasonably well at first until having great difficulty fending off the slashing punches to head and body that Coulon showered on him. With superior speed, Coulon was able to avoid Scully’s rushes and the latter was all in by the ninth, prior to the police telling the referee to call a halt.
