1913-12-10 (147lbs) Mike Gibbons nd-w co 2 (10) Wildcat Ferns, Pelican Park, New Orleans, Louisiana, USA. Referee: Dick Burke. Billed for the 147lbs title, Ferns (146) was dropped four times in quick succession by Gibbons (147) in the second round, the final knockdown ending in a count out.

However, with the popular limit still at 142lbs (3pm weigh-in) or 145 (ringside) in America, Gibbons received little recognition.
