1916-05-24 (145lbs) Ted Kid Lewis nd-w rsc 13 (15) Eddie Moha, Gymnastic Club, Dayton, Ohio, USA. In his first contest since taking over Kid Graves’ 145lbs title claim, Moha made a reasonable start when flooring Lewis in the second round, but the latter came back strongly with fast, clever work to outclass his rival in every facet of the game. After Lewis had put Moha down with a hard left to the jaw in the 13th, the referee stopped the fight when it was clear that the latter could not continue.
