Stopped by the referee, who had to catch a train. (Not Jan. 29 or a K.O. loss by Johnson. Also, not held in Hazelton, as is sometimes reported.) According to the Philadelphia Item, the fight was held in Luzerne, PA, not either Williamsport or Hazleton. It was a finish fight. "When the 25th round finished, Johnson looked so badly used up that he was unable to face his opponent again."

Hawkins was the aggressor in the early rounds, Johnson took the punishment and laughed. This evidently discouraged Hawkins as he took off his gloves and stood outside the ropes, claiming Johnson had fouled him by hugging. The referee disallowed his claim and awarded the bout to Johnson.
