1913-11-17 (145lbs) Wildcat Ferns drew 15 Johnny McCarthy, Stockyards Stadium, Denver, Colorado, USA. Referee: Mr Geary. With the weight set at 145lbs, the Rocky Mountain Herald stated that both men were inside for what was a defence of Ferns’ title claim. Every round saw Ferns forcing matters, with McCarthy, who was about ten pounds lighter, covering up well and fighting cleverly on the inside to nullify the incessant attacks before tiring towards the end.
