1910-01-31 Harry McDermott w pts 20 Joe Percival, St James’ Hall, Newcastle, England. Made at 110lbs, plus or minus two pounds, and also mistakenly reported as involving Percival’s English 106lbs title claim, McDermott looked like taking a great deal of punishment before settling down to win easily after doing as he liked with his opponent. This should be seen as involving McDermott’s 112lbs British title claim.
