The Thursday News - Women Go Rounds

 January 29, 1790
A curious boxing match took place a few days ago at Waddington near Lincoln between two females of that village, Susanna LOCKER and Mary FARMERY. They both laid claim to the affections of a young man; this produced a challenge from the latter to fight for the prize, which was accepted. Proper sidesmen were chosen and every matter conducted in form. After several count-down blows on each side, the battle ended in favour of Mary FARMERY.
