1915-02-09 [[Freddie Welsh]] nd-drew 10 [[Joe Shugrue]], Madison Square Garden, Manhattan, NYC, New York, USA - WORLD. Referee: Billy Roche. After both men had made 135lbs at the 3pm weigh-in as per the articles of agreement, it was Shugrue (135) who did most of the forcing without ever being able to land a telling punch and it became a boring, uninteresting contest. Having scaled 135½lbs at the ringside weigh-in, in the main Welsh (135) was content to defend and when he did occasionally open up he seemed more concerned in preserving his hands.
