1910-06-27 Bill Kyne w pts 20 Albert Cocksedge, St James’ Hall, Newcastle, England. Billed as an English 110lbs title defence for Cocksedge (110), with no individual weights published this fight should be seen as belonging to the new flyweight division. Although Cocksedge defended well the fight belonged to Kyne (109), who both outpaced and outpunched his rival to win going away, his bodywork being an important factor in the result.
