John `Licker' Pratt fought and won
the first public boxing match with Jem Mace.
( See WHITE SWAN, Swan Lane, Norwich )

It was reported that on Tuesday 26th November 1850, `Liquor' Pratt and labourer John Pratt were called to give evidence at the inquest into the death, the day before, of 21 year old Benjamin Ellis. The two named were seconds for Mr. Ellis in a fight against Robert Baker, which had arisen from a drunken quarrel. Fighting for stakes of £1 a side, each fighter had been accompanied by two seconds. After a lengthy conflict it was ended with Ellis being seriously injured whist he was on the ground. Conveyed home he died of his beating. After the fight, Baker and his seconds absconded.
Following an autopsy, on Thursday 28th November the Jury returned a verdict of manslaughter against Baker and all four seconds.
Baker and his seconds had not been apprehended.
