1911-01-30 Sid Smith w pts 15 George Peters, Manor Place Baths, Walworth, London, England. Smith, a busy bee of a fighter, clearly outpointed Peters after the third in all rounds bar the 11th, his unerring left hand finding the latter continuously. Made at 112lbs, while not a billed title fight it did not stop Smith from claiming to be the British champion, especially as he had defeated Alex Lafferty on points over 20 rounds in a catchweight bout at the Victoria AC, Glasgow on 5 December 1910. With Smith inside the articled 112lbs, Lafferty failed to make the weight, being well over the required limit. On 8 May, Joe Percival outpointed Louis Ruddick over 20 rounds at the Carlton Hill Barracks, Leeds in a billed British 106lbs title fight, both men scaling 105lbs.
