Preparing for the Benny Lynch fight at Anfield
Peter Kane took on Benny Lynch at Anfield in March 1938. The contest was supposed to be for the world title but Lynch failed to make the weight. The previous October Lynch had KO Kane in round 13 to retain his world flyweight title at Shawfield Park, Glasgow. The return match at Anfield in front of 35,000 fans saw the two boxers box out a draw.
