referee: George Siler
Griffo and Tracey had boxed for about one minute, when Griffo suddenly threw up his arms, sprang to the ropes and started making a speech. He claimed the taxi he was in collided with a streetcar and he was bruised so bad he could not continue. Brooklyn Daily Eagle
St. Louis Republic's reporter thought Griffo was drunk (from seeing him in the ring and from post-fight interview with him), and didn't notice any injuries from the previous night's accident.

"The management disappointed the people by cutting the contest down to four rounds, and the principals completed the dissatisfaction by faking miserably. Erne was no match for Griffo, who tapped him lightly on the head, slapped him on the sides with open gloves, and played the buffoon generally." New York Sun
