1898-06-11Terry McGovern15-1-3
Greater New York A.C., Brooklyn, New York, USALKO2425
The men weighed in at 112 pounds. Both looked fit to go the entire twenty-five rounds that was scheduled. The first round was a “feeling out” round in which no damaging blows were landed by either fighter. Monroe did most of the leading in the second, but was dropped for a count in the third. McGovern started fast in the fourth and did all of the leading and the fifth round was more of the same. McGovern was cautioned twice for using his head in close. In the sixth round, McGovern cut loose knocking his opponent all over the ring and by the end of the seventh it looked as though it would only be a matter of time until Monroe was knocked out. Monroe managed to gain a little measure on McGovern in the ninth and tenth rounds. Up to the thirteenth neither man had landed any real damaging blows. McGovern again cut loose in the fourteenth hitting hard and drawing blood for the first time in the fight. Monroe was weak at the end of the fifteenth and betting was 3 to 1 that he would not last two more rounds, but Monroe regained his energy and probably had the better of the mill in the two rounds that were supposed to be his last. The fight was nearly even at the end of twenty rounds. Monroe was downed again in the twenty-second round, but still managed to land as much as he took. The twenty-third was even, but in the twenty-fourth McGovern began to land often and land hard. Terry landed a hard shot and followed it up with another hard punch which sent Monroe down for the count, the result “KO 24.” (Brooklyn Daily Eagle)

Waverly A.C., Yonkers, New York, USADPTS2020
referee: George Edwards
The weight of both men scaled less than 112 pounds each. It was an excellent bout from the sound of the first gong until referee Edwards declared it a draw. Terry was the aggressor for most of the bout, but George was always ready to counter the attack. There were no knockdowns, but each man suffered eye cuts and they fought one another to a standstill and were punching out of clinches. Terry was just beginning to fall into the rushing style that would make him so popular and at times, just when the audience thought that McGovern was on the verge of knocking his man out, Monroe always came back with a viscous counter.
