1914-06-09 (116/118lbs) Kid Williams w co 3 (20) Johnny Coulon, Vernon Arena, Los Angeles, California, USA. Referee: Charles Eyton. Billed for the world 116lbs title, and fighting to unify the title in the eyes of the majority of American fans, both men safely made the required weight. On his knees at the end of the second, Coulon tore out for the third and met Williams punch for punch before a solid right uppercut dropped him to the floor to be counted out.
