Spinrad lists this match under the year 1859, but Zavatarelli says it started in 1856, probably January. Nizzola gives a result 18-10 for Discart, as a third match before the 1863 match, and this is repeated by Spinrad and Sericano. According to Zavatarelli, however, it is spurious. Their third match was the one in 1863, and there was no other between it and the first two.
