1899-11-18John Finnegan3-1-3
Saint Louis, Missouri, USADPTS2020
Editor's note: It was around the time of this fight that John Finnegan gained a modicum of national notice and certain newspapers began occasionally referring to him by the nickname "Jack". Historians over the decades have embraced it, but from the beginning of his career to the finish he more often went by his given name of "John", so it seems appropriate to reassert it here for the official record.
