1914-04-28 Jack Dillon w pts 10 Al Norton, 15th Street Garage Building, Kansas City, Missouri, USA - USA. Referee: Walter Bates. Billed as a title bout, the Kansas City Star reported that Norton, inside 175lbs, excelled at long range with the left jab while Dillon (168) was at his best on the inside. The inexperienced Norton fought a cool fight throughout, and it was only in the ninth that Dillon was able to carry all before him, dropping his rival from more of a push than a punch and fighting flat out until the final bell.
