National championship



  • John Morrissey retains the Championship of America but there is no record of any fights involving him in 1855.[1]
  • 10 February — Tom Sayers defeats Aaron Jones in the 85th round at Medway, Kent. Having beaten Harry Poulson the previous year, Sayers is now the main contender for the Championship of England title disputed by William Perry and Tom Paddock.[2]
  • 16 June — Sayers defeats Perry after 85 rounds at the Isle of Grain. Sayers claims the title but most backers still recognise Paddock, who does not fight this year. Perry's career ends after his defeat by Sayers.[2]
