1936: Derry legend Spider Jim Kelly knocked out Belfast’s Frank McAloran in the fourteenth round to win the vacant BBBoC Northern Irish featherweight title at the King’s Hall. McAloran, a former Irish featherweight champion, would retire following the bout. Kelly on the other hand would defend the belt and win the British and Commonwealth belts two years later, while his son Billy would also have a hugely successful career.
