1912-05-23 (142/145lbs) [[Harry Brewer]] nd-w pts 8 [[Ray Bronson]], The Coliseum, St Louis, Missouri, USA. Reported in the ''Chicago Tribune'' as a billed title fight, the ''St Louis Post-Dispatch'' confirmed that Bronson was inside the stipulated 142lbs, while Brewer made 145lbs, the weight he claimed the title at following his fine performance, albeit over a shortened distance. In a contest that was meant to be a warm-up for a meeting with Packey McFarland, Bronson was shocked when knocked down in the first before being put through the ropes on two more occasions. Although Bronson came on strong near the end, it was only his ring generalship that saved him from an early defeat.
