PTS25/25
Hercules A.C., Brooklyn, New York, USA
For roughness and foul fighting it exceeded the anticipation of even those familiar with both men. Flaherty was the stronger and held his advantage to the end. It was a surprise to all when Referee Johnny Eckhardt declared the bout was a draw decision. Brooklyn Daily Eagle

DQ19/20
Broadway A.C., Brooklyn, New York, USA
With the verdict practically in his favor, Downey swung his man half way across the ring to his knees and struck him twice while he was in that position. It was a palpable foul and cost him the fight. Brooklyn Daily Eagle

Downey fought the fight of his career. Dixon had to nurse a "cut and well puffed eye," as well as smashed lips. Brookly Daily Eagle
Dixon made weight easily, while Downey was half-pound overweight.
