1914-01-19 (142lbs) Mike Glover nd-l pts 10 Jack Britton, National AC, Manhattan, NYC, New York, USA. A defence of Glover’s 142lbs title claim ended with Britton (134½) being awarded the press verdict following an exceptional contest of skill and science that saw him get the better of every round bar the fifth and seventh. While Glover (137¼) was not far behind he was unable to make a breakthrough against a man at the top of his game.
