1910-06-10 (133lbs) [[Ad Wolgast]] nd-w pts 10 [[Jack Redmond]], The Hippodrome, Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA. With both men inside 130lbs, the ''Los Angeles Times'' reported that the champion snapped a bone in his left forearm in the seventh round, having earlier hurt his left knuckle on Redmond’s elbow in the fourth, but was forced to carry on in order to safeguard his title. Although he had taken it easy up to that stage Wolgast found it difficult to defend with the left by his side from the eighth onwards, but using a right uppercut he soon had Redmond wary and was able to stall his way through to the final bell.

While I can find nothing in print to suggest that his title was at risk, it is clear that all his opponents around this time were being asked to make 133lbs ringside, something that Cole would have been more than happy to concur with. The ''Muncie Morning Star'', while not mentioning weights, reported that the men boxed as lightweights.
