26 February (116lbs) Johnny Coulon w pts 20 Frankie Conley, Louisiana Auditorium, New Orleans, Louisiana, USA. Referee: Tommy Walsh. Billed for the world 116lbs title, Coulon converted his 115lbs title claim to 116lbs in this one. Coulon’s skilful defence and infighting qualities proved too much for Conley, who after taking a lot of punishment vowed never to try and get below 116lbs again.
