1915-06-09 (145lbs) Kid Graves nd-l pts 10 Ted Kid Lewis, St Nicholas Arena, Manhattan, NYC, New York, USA. Referee: Billy Roche. Graves (145) held on to his title claim at the weight when lasting the distance against a future champion in Lewis (140), but in the main he was outfought at close quarters and well beaten at range. There were no knockdowns but Lewis was easily the better man on the night.
