1924-01-23 Joe Lynch nd-w co 2 (10) Paddy Owens, The Coliseum, El Dorado, Arkansas, USA - NBA. Referee: Frank Foster. According to the El Dorado News-Times, with both men inside the championship weight Lynch’s title was on the line. Lynch (118) obviously had no intention of losing his title on the road, the fight being short and sweet, and ended with Owens (116) being counted out in the second round, having already been decked twice earlier in the session. Lynch’s challenger, who was reported in the local papers as 20-year-old Parky Owens from Boston, was almost certainly Paddy Owens, an experienced 26-year old from the same city.
