1913-01-13 (142/145lbs) Spike Kelly w pts 8 Ray Bronson, Phoenix AC, Memphis, Tennessee, USA. Referee: Mr Hasck. Despite being only an eight rounder, the Memphis Daily Appeal reported it to be a welter title debate at 142lbs. The contest saw Kelly stake a claim to the American 142/145lbs title after the referee awarded him the decision on the basis of him landing the cleaner blows and carrying the contest to Bronson for more than 70% of the battle. There were no knockdowns, but in the fifth Bronson had Kelly on the run from straight lefts and right hands to the body, while in the seventh Kelly had Bronson at full stretch, hitting him when and where he pleased.
