A low blow disqualification. Routis was the first world's champion to appear in Montreal since Tony Canzoneri a year earlier. Cohen reportedly would have won the world's featherweight title if he had not come in overweight. Montreal Herald

This was a thrilling fight filled with action. It was close; in fact some persons thought that Routis deserved a draw, but Walter Eckersall of the Tribune though that Canzoneri was a worthy winner. (From the Chicago Tribune, Bob Soderman).
