Flyweight World/Lineal Championship Fights

 

With Wilde recognised as the best in the world by the great majority in Britain and Europe, his meeting with Rosner, one of the best in America, should be seen as a world title fight.  

24 April 1916. Jimmy Wilde w rtd 11 (20) Johnny Rosner

Venue: The Stadium, Liverpool, England. Recognition: World. Referee: Eugene Corri.

Fight Summary: Articled for the world 112lbs title, the brave Rosner proved no match for the brilliant Wilde and was finally rescued when his corner threw in the towel. At no time did Rosner look like winning, despite him being a solid puncher, and cut over the left eye and taking a solid beating in almost every round it was a miracle that he managed to remain upright.

 

26 June 1916. Jimmy Wilde w rsc 11 (20) Tancy Lee

Venue: NSC, Covent Garden, London, England. Recognition: World. Referee: J. H. Douglas.

Fight Summary: Billed for the British, European and world titles, on winning Wilde put a second notch on the 112lbs Lonsdale Belt. Prior to the contest, Lee said that his main chance of winning would come if he could get Wilde against the ropes. Although he managed to do that on occasion the little man was able to slip away to batter Lee from the outside, often scoring at will. Finally, in the tenth, when Wilde, working the head and body, put Lee down for three long counts even though the Scot made it to the end of the round the writing was firmly on the wall. After being dropped for ‘six’ in the 11th Lee was immediately smashed down again by rights and lefts, and not before time he was rescued by the third man.

31 July 1916. Jimmy Wilde w co 10 (20) Johnny Hughes

Venue: Athletic Ground, Kensal Rise, London, England. Recognition: World. Referee: J. H. Douglas.

Fight Summary: Made at 112lbs, and billed for the British, European and world titles, the fight did not attract the Lonsdale Belt as it was held outside the auspices of the NSC. At the same time, Wilde’s European and world title claims were at stake. The contest itself was painfully one-sided as Wilde avoided almost everything coming his way before seeing Hughes off in the tenth round with a right to the jaw. Hughes, whose eyes were badly damaged early on, was warned for low blows that were probably more to do with his lack of vision.

 

18 December 1916. Jimmy Wilde w co 11 (20) Young Zulu Kid

Venue: The Stadium, Holborn, London, England. Recognition: World. Referee: J. T. Hulls.

Fight Summary: Although both men were announced as being within 112lbs it was noticeable that Wilde was much lighter than his opponent. Regardless of that, despite being an extremely game performer it was quickly apparent that the Young Zulu Kid (110½) was never going to bother Wilde, especially when he was dumped on the canvas in round two. Whether it was boxing or fighting the British champion was the master, and in the 11th round he set about the American with a vengeance. After the Kid was floored, heavy lefts and rights doing the damage, he got to his feet before being dropped again and then counted out following another barrage of blows from Wilde.

 

12 March 1917. Jimmy Wilde w rtd 4 (20) George Clark

Venue: NSC, Covent Garden, London, England. Recognition: World. Referee: J. H. Douglas.

Fight Summary: In defending his 112lb title claims, while winning a Lonsdale Belt outright, Wilde (102) did as he pleased with the unfortunate Clark (112), before deciding once the fourth round was underway that it was to be an early night. Punches to head and body from both hands soon had Clark on the floor, and on rising he was downed twice more before his corner threw the towel in to save their man from further punishment.

 

12 March 1920. Jimmy Wilde nd-w pts 12 Frankie Mason

Venue: The Coliseum, Toledo, Ohio, USA. Recognition: World. Referee: Edward W. Smith.

Fight Summary: Billed as a world flyweight title fight despite the Articles of Agreement calling for both men to be inside 108lbs, Wilde (106¼) won the 12-round press decision handily after doing all the forcing. He also showed great defensive powers, dodging, feinting and shifting before hitting back and overwhelming Mason (106¼). The referee claimed that he had never seen a fighter like Wilde, who was so willing to carry a fight to the opposition and mix matters throughout.

2 May 1925. Pancho Villa w pts 15 Clever Sencio

Venue: Wallace Field Stadium, Manila, Philippines. Recognition: World.

The title became vacant when Villa died from a poisoned tooth infection on 14 July, ten days after boxing the future welterweight champion, Jimmy McLarnin (l pts 10 at Oaks Ballpark, Oakland, California on 4 July) at catchweights, and when LaBarba, recognised by the NBA and California as champion, and the British and European champion, Elky Clark, were finally matched to unify the title the contest should be seen as a world title fight.

 

21 January 1927. Fidel LaBarba w pts 12 Elky Clark

Venue: Madison Square Garden, Manhattan, NYC, New York, USA. Recognition: World. Referee: Patsy Haley.

By now, LaBarba was having difficulty making 112lbs, and officially relinquished the title on 25 August in order to further his studies at Stanford University. Having won the NBA title when beating Frankie Genaro by a first-round kayo on 2 March 1929, Emile Pladner was recognised 18 days later by the IBU as world champion. The return fight would carry lineal billing.

13 October 1937. Benny Lynch w co 13 (15) Peter Kane

Venue: Shawfield Park, Glasgow, Scotland. Recognition: GB/NBA/NY/Lineal. Referee: Barrington Dalby.

 

Lynch finally forfeited all of his titles both in Britain and America when weighing in six-and-a-half pounds overweight for a championship match against Jackie Jurich at Firhill Park on 29 June 1938. Having already been postponed twice after Lynch suffered an injured elbow in training, the fight went ahead with Jurich counted out in the 12th round.

On 28 July 1938, the NYSAC suggested that if Kane, Jurich, the top man in the world according to The Ring, Small Montana, Little Dado and Katsumi Morioka went into a series of eliminators they would recognise the winner as champion. Ignoring all advice, the BBBoC matched the heavy-hitting Kane, who had inadvertently been left out of The Ring ratings, with Jurich for the vacant title. Realistically, Kane should have been ranked at number two, which would have given the contest lineal status.

 

22 September 1938. Peter Kane w pts 15 Jackie Jurich

Venue: Anfield Football Ground, Liverpool, England. Recognition: GB/Lineal. Referee: Eugene Henderson.

 Kane announced on 8 May 1939 that he was relinquishing the GB version of the title in order to campaign as a bantamweight. The lineal title was also automatically vacated.

Eventually, Scotland’s Jackie Paterson, who had been top-rated by The Ring magazine since March 1940, was booked to meet Peter Kane who had come back strongly as a flyweight to become the division’s number two. Matched by the BBBoC and supported by the NYSAC the contest should also be seen as involving the lineal title.
