1915-03-20 (160lbs) [[Young Ahearn]] nd-w pts 10 [[Italian Joe Gans]], Irving AC, Brooklyn, NYC, New York, USA. Defending his 160lbs title claim, with both men inside, Ahearn continued his advance to the top of the middleweight tree when decisively outscoring Gans, his cleverness being just too much for the latter. Ahearn was on top from the start and in the second round he started to send in clusters of punches from both hands without reply, something he did again and again. Gans was unable to fathom Ahearn out and never came close to putting a dent in the title claimant’s plans.
