1908-10-09 (118lbs) Jimmy Walsh w pts 15 Young Britt, Eureka AC, Germania Maennerchor Hall, Baltimore, Maryland, USA. Referee: Mr O’Hara. Billed as a title match at 118lbs, Britt fought tooth-and-nail throughout, and despite being practically a novice he continually swapped blows with Walsh. Although Walsh landed more often, with his punches lacking steam Britt deserved better.
