1915-02-25 Freddie Welsh nd-w pts 10 Charley White, Brewery City Auditorium, Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - WORLD. Referee: George Duffy. Although a no-decision contest, with both men inside the weight class limit it involved the championship and would see the left jab and all-round skills of Welsh (135) pitted against the left hook and aggression of the Liverpool-born White (134). As it turned out, Welsh again showed himself to be a past master of the sweet science, his cleverness, movement and covering up making life extremely difficult for the hard-hitting White, who was accorded just two rounds by the press - the first and fifth, with two even - and it was only the champion’s lack of power that allowed him to survive.
