1912-10-11 (145lbs) Wildcat Ferns nd-w co 2 (8) Art Magirl, Queen City AC, The Coliseum, St Louis, Missouri, USA. Although only carded for eight rounds, with both men inside 145lbs and following his ten-round press draw against Ray Bronson, Ferns claimed the American title on the result. Magirl had been put down for two counts of ‘nine’ in the second round and after getting up he was then knocked out by a terrific right uppercut.
