12 May (115lbs) [[Johnny Coulon]] nd-w pts 10 [[Phil McGovern]], [[Madison AC, Brooklyn, NYC, New York]], USA. Coulon, putting his 115lbs title claim at risk, appeared to be a clear-cut winner, his speed and punch rate being far too much for McGovern to handle. Although McGovern, who appeared weak at the weight, put Coulon down in the third round with a right swing to the jaw, the latter got up quickly to return the compliment and give his rival no further opportunities.
