23 November (116lbs) [[Monte Attell]] w pts 10 [[Jimmy Walsh]], [[The Hippodrome, Kansas City, Missouri]], USA. Well documented in the ''San Francisco Chronicle'', Walsh refused to weigh in while Attell, who scaled inside 116lbs, maintained his title claim at that weight. The fight went ahead, with Walsh thought to be in the region of 122lbs and Attell finished the opening session with his right eye closed. Walsh’s main ploy was to rush Attell to the ropes, but the latter often rocked him back with solid head punches and used good footwork to evade blows coming his way. There were no knockdowns.
