1917-03-13 (118lbs) [[Pete Herman]] nd-w pts 10 [[Dutch Brandt]], Broadway SC, Brooklyn, NYC, New York, USA. With both men inside 118lbs, this was another instance of Herman (117½) putting his title claim on the line in a no-decision affair. While Brandt (117½) was willing and able, and went non-stop from gong to gong, Herman proved to be a master at covering up when he had to. He also worked Brandt’s midsection well, doing enough to get the press verdict.
