1913-05-29 (160lbs) Jack Dillon nd-w pts 10 Frank Klaus, Washington Park, Indianapolis, Indiana, USA. Referee: Tom Dillon. Made at 160lbs, both fighters’ claims at the weight were on the line in this one. Although the opening five sessions were slow and uninteresting, Dillon outfought and outboxed Klaus from round six through to the tenth, outpunching the latter at the rate of eight to one according to press reports. While Klaus spent much his time clinching and blocking punches, Dillon was often landing crisply and was a wide winner as far as the press were concerned.
