1913-12-29 (142lbs) Johnny Kid Alberts nd-drew 10 Tommy Maloney, National AC, Manhattan, NYC, New York, USA. With both boys inside 142lbs, Alberts (142) held on to his claim at the weight when getting a press draw against Maloney (142). The New York Times report stated that after eight sessions of mediocrity, the last two rounds were enlivened by fast mixing and clean hitting, in which Maloney made the running in the ninth. Although baffled by some clever boxing, Alberts eventually came back in the tenth to even matters up.
