referee: George Siler
Chicago Daily Tribune (8/11/1906): Carsey's trainer, Eldridge Smith, had drowned while swimming in Grand River with Frank 5 days earlier. Grand Rapids Press: Attell won by a narrow margin, many in the audience stridently protesting that Carsey deserved at least a draw. Attell slugged a heckler on the way back to his dressing room.

"While Herman made a spendid showing, and landed hard and often on Attell, it was plain from the first to last round that he had undertaken too big a job." (POLICE GAZETTE, Feb. 1904.) Attell's wonderful cleverness and left-hand work was a revelation to the large crowd. Attell was substituted for Young Mowatt, who had taken sick on the eve of the battle. Neither scored knockdowns. North Ward Guards' boxing show. (Photo)
