A Mother's Love

No, it's not about a yiddishe mame. Gnotalex's persistent search was crowned by a hilarious discovery:

In the third round of the fight, for a shot at the British light-heavyweight championship, McCarthy punched Wilson to the mat for an 8-count. Wilson's mother climbed into the ring and started beating McCarthy's head with one of her shoes, opening a large wound, which required hospital treatment and forced McCarthy to retire. Under the rules, the referee gave Wilson the victory.
There is a video clip of the event on Gnotalex's place too.
