1912-11-13 (145lbs) Wildcat Ferns nd-l pts 10 Tommy Howell, Virginia Avenue Auditorium, Indianapolis, Indiana, USA. The Indianapolis News reported that with both men inside 145lbs Ferns’ title claim at the weight was at stake in this one. Despite Ferns possessing dynamite in his right hand, Howell was happy to take the fight to him from the opening bell and sent his rival down for ‘nine’ in the first session. From thereon they traded blows for most of the way, with Howell just keeping his nose in front due to his being more active, but Ferns was always dangerous.
