1908-08-06 (105lbs) Johnny Coulon w rsc 5 Young Joe Gans, Cubs AC, Waukegan, Illinois, USA. A truly dreadful contest saw the 5’10” Gans never having a chance of taking Coulon’s 105lbs title home with him, as he was continually knocked down and spent most of his time either on the floor or stuck in a corner desperately trying to defend himself. After ten seconds of the fifth Gans was rescued by the referee when on the verge of being knocked out, having been down twice already during the session.
