1908-11-25 (132lbs) Dick Lee w pts 20 Seaman Hayes, NSC, Covent Garden, London, England. Referee: Eugene Corri. Made at 132lbs, Hayes (128) began the brighter of the two when going for the body and after being punished heavily in the fourth Lee (131½) was admonished by the referee for taking a count without being hit. Although Lee started to get his left hand working well, Hayes was still hurting him to the body and he was dropped for two long counts, in the seventh and the 12th. Despite that, Lee was boxing well and from then on the affair was hotly contested. While Hayes probably concentrated too much on putting Lee out, the latter stuck with the left from distance and following a good exhibition in the last two rounds he was given the verdict. Lee was now claiming the English 132lbs and 134lbs championships, which counted for very little after the named weight divisions came into being on 11 February 1909.
