DQ1/20
Phoenix A.C., Memphis, Tennessee, USA
Results from the Pittsburgh Post and Pittsburgh Commercial Gazzette. 2,500 attended. Creedon's blows were telling and he was having things his way. A left sent Scanlon to the floor. Upon rising there was a clinch. Creedon punched on the breakaway, after which the cry of "foul" was raised by Scanlon's corner. The referee awarded the fight to Scanlon. A huge uproar of protest followed.
