1914-02-07 (160lbs) Eddie McGoorty w pts 20 Pat Bradley, Baker’s Stadium, Sydney, Australia. Referee: Arthur Scott. Billed for the Australian version of the middleweight title, with McGoorty (158) defending, the challenger was not given much chance against a man who stood taller and outreached him by a considerable amount. Regardless of that, Bradley (158) proved to be a difficult man to dislodge and more than bothered McGoorty with his swings and smothering tactics. Several times during the contest McGoorty was caught by solid blows to the head and had to step cautiously, but he was the one with the skill and was well ahead by the three-quarter mark. While there was always the chance that Bradley might get lucky, especially in the 17th when he had a tiring McGoorty almost off his feet, he was given no further opportunities as the American boxed his way out of trouble to take the referee’s decision.
