1908-12-28 (104lbs) Curley Osborne w co 4 (20) Kid Furness, Scottish National AC, Glasgow, Scotland. Billed for the English 104lbs title, and contested over two-minute rounds, Furness, the lighter man by three pounds, boxed well within himself, having Osborne down twice in the second before the bell came to the latter’s aid. The third round saw Furness down for ‘nine’ as both men let their punches go, and in the fourth following a rare set-to Osborne side-stepped a left lead to end the fight with a crashing right to the jaw.
