1913-09-09 (145lbs) Spike Kelly nd-w pts 10 Tommy Sheehan, Grand Opera House, Superior, Wisconsin, USA. The Milwaukee Sentinel reported this one at 145lbs, and with his claim at risk Kelly made sure of the press verdict when using fast footwork to score points as well as avoid punches. Despite it being tame, Kelly shaded it after Sheehan was unable to come up with anything significant.
