1912-02-18 (116lbs) Johnny Coulon w pts 20 Frankie Burns, West Side AC, New Orleans, Louisiana, USA. Referee: Harry Stout. Billed for the 116lbs title, Coulon (111) won nearly every round through to the 11th before Burns (116) came back into it with heavy right uppercuts and rights and lefts to close the margin. Coulon was credited with the only knockdown of the fight when a cracking left hook had Burns down momentarily in the last minute of the last round.
