1918-05-02 (145lbs) Ted Kid Lewis nd-drew 10 Jack Britton, The Public Hall, Scranton, Pennsylvania, USA. The earliest clue that this involved the championship came the night before when the Scranton Times reported that in the event of Britton scoring a kayo victory the fans would be able to say they had witnessed a title fight and that the latter would be the new champion. After both men made 145lbs ringside, it turned into a gruelling battle, with Lewis showing all his cleverness to keep Britton at bay. There were no knockdowns, but Britton never gave up trying.
