1912-08-12 (158lbs) Jack Dillon nd-w co 4 (10) Billy Donovan, The Coliseum, Richmond, Indiana, USA. Made at 158lbs, according to the Richmond Palladium Dillon outclassed his opponent, knocking him down three times in the third round and sending him into dreamland after a flurry of blows during the fourth. There was never any doubt as to who would win as Dillon was on top from the opening bell and hit far too hard for the game Donovan.
