1911-03-17 (133lbs) Ad Wolgast w rsc 9 (20) George Memsic, Vernon Arena, Los Angeles, California, USA. Referee: Charles Eyton. The Los Angeles Daily Times gave this as a title defence at 133lbs. Having outboxed Memsic (132½) in seven of the opening eight rounds, Wolgast (129½) decided that the time was right to go for the knockout in the ninth and after staggering the challenger with lefts and rights to the head the refereee decided that enough was enough.
