1911-03-22 (114/116lbs) Johnny Coulon nd-w rsc 5 (15) George Kitson, Music Hall, Akron, Ohio, USA. Referee: Walter C. Kelley. Made at 114lbs, and automatically involving Coulon’s 116lbs title claim, both men were on the floor prior to the fifth round when Kitson was pulled out of the contest by the referee after being dropped heavily from a left hook to the jaw. The fight always seemed to be with Coulon, his speed and power ultimately proving too much for his game opponent.
