1911-01-30 (116lbs) [[Monte Attell]] nd-l pts 10 [[Phil McGovern]], Vanderbilt AC, Brooklyn, NYC, New York, USA. With both men inside 116lbs Attell’s resurrected title claim was on the line, and he had to twice get off the floor in the opening two rounds to hang on to it. Although Attell gradually recovered his momentum it was not until the seventh that he really got going and by then McGovern had lost his chance. The ''Washington Post'' reported the Attell was down three times in the first round, which differs from other accounts.
