1907: Tommy vs British champ Moir. Wiki: Burns was the first truly international heavyweight champion, defending his title in America, England, Ireland, France and Australia. His title defense against Gunner Moir in London was the first World Heavyweight championship fight of the gloved era to be held outside of The United States.
