1908-06-13 Tommy Burns w co 8 (10) Bill Squires, Neuilly Bowling Palace, Paris, France - WORLD. Referee: Dr Phelin Roux. After several easy defences, Squires (183) gave Burns (184) a fair bit of bother until tiring in the ninth round, having given as good as he got. Coming out for the tenth and mustering all of his remaining energy, Squires tore into Burns, only to be stopped in his tracks by a blow to the body that dropped him for the full count.
