25 April (116lbs) [[Johnny Coulon]] drew 10 [[Eddie O’Keefe]], [[The Hippodrome, Kansas City, Missouri]], USA. The ''Kansas City Star'' stated that with both men inside 116lbs Coulon’s title claim was on the line. While O’Keefe did well at range, Coulon was the master on the inside and had his man going several times prior to the seventh before the challenger came on strongly to earn a share of the spoils. Despite making a great impression, O’Keefe appears to box at a higher weight from thereon.
