1916-12-08 (145lbs) Jack Britton nd-w pts 10 Sam Robideau, The Athletic Club, Cleveland, Ohio, USA. Referee: Eddie Davis. Although Robideau was a replacement for Joe Sherman, Britton’s title claim at 145lbs was still on the line. Adopting defensive tactics throughout ten slow rounds, the press came down hard on Britton (144) for not finishing the outclassed Robideau (143) off. In short, Britton took it easy and it was only towards the end when Robideau hurt him with a left swing that he finally opened up.
