1917-05-20 (142lbs) Jack Britton nd-l pts 10 Ted Kid Lewis, Massey Hall, Toronto, Canada. Referee: Walter Kelley. Both men agreed to be inside 142lbs (3pm weigh-in), thus putting Britton’s title claim up for grabs and it was the Englishman who made all the running. Unfortunately for Lewis, although he managed to pierce Britton’s guard on various occasions he was unable to find a finisher and had to content himself with the press verdict.
