Line 1: Line 1:
1913-04-14 (142lbs) [[Ray Bronson]] nd-drew 10 [[Billy Griffith]], Olympic Theatre, Cincinnati, Ohio, USA. Referee: Frank Kelly. The ''Cincinnati Enquirer'' claimed that with both men making the stipulated 142lbs Bronson’s claim was at risk, and he started as though he meant to hold on to it when sending in right-hand swings to Griffith’s face. For several rounds Griffith was a threat when sending in heavy wallops from either hand and in the sixth and eighth he virtually had Bronson at his mercy. Then it was Bronson’s turn and in the final session he battered Griffith around the ring, but was unable to find a finisher.
