1916-12-18 [[Jimmy Wilde]] w co 11 (20) [[Young Zulu Kid]], The Stadium, Holborn, London, England - WORLD. Referee: J. T. Hulls. Although both men were announced as being within 112lbs, it was noticeable that Wilde was much lighter than his opponent. Regardless of that, despite being an extremely game performer it was quickly apparent that the Young Zulu Kid (110½) was never going to bother Wilde, especially when he was dumped on the canvas in round two. Whether it was boxing or fighting, the British champion was the master and in the 11th round he set about the American with a vengeance, putting him down twice with heavy lefts and rights, the last occasion seeing him counted out.
