1913-02-10 (160lbs) [[Jack Dillon]] drew 15 [[Bill McKinnon]], Rhode Island AC, Providence, Rhode Island, USA. With both men inside 160lbs, Dillon held on to his title claim at that weight with a draw, but if it had been a press decision it would surely have gone to Dillon with the majority of papers seeing the fight in his favour. Although Dillon did not find a finishing blow he dealt out severe punishment in the clinches, sinking lefts and rights into McKinnon’s body. All McKinnon had in his armoury was the left jab, but he knew how to avoid punches and made life difficult for Dillon at times without ever looking likely to win.
