1915-06-07 Jack Dillon nd-l pts 10 Tom McMahon, Airdome AC, Rochester, New York, USA. With both men inside 175lbs this should be considered a defence of Dillon’s claim at the weight despite a lack of billing. Initially, it looked as though Dillon (170) was looking to get rid of McMahon (175) early as he bored in with two-handed assaults. Having had little success with that tactic, Dillon settled down to block all that McMahon could toss at him in what had become a pretty tame fight in the words of the local papers. The last two rounds saw McMahon swinging in punches from distance as Dillon eased his way through to the final bell.
