1949-09-30 [[Rinty Monaghan]] drew 15 [[Terry Allen]], King’s Hall, Belfast, Northern Ireland - WORLD. Referee: Sam Russell. In a contest where there was much missing, the champion forced the fight for most of the time while Allen (111¾) was content to box at distance. Apart from the second round when Allen dropped Monaghan (111¼) for ‘eight’ with a precision right cross, there was never a great deal in it and if the challenger had stepped up his work rate it could have been a different result. At the final bell, Monaghan walked over to the referee and held his hand out but was sent back to his corner until both men were called to the centre of the ring to have their arms raised. Monaghan retired as undefeated champion in April 1950 and the two leading contenders, according to The Ring magazine, Allen and [[Honore Pratesi]], the French champion, were matched for the vacant world and European titles.
