Referee Jack Dempsey picked up the count incorrectly. Knockdown time-keeper Arthur Donovan signaled Heeney out at Dempsey's count of eight. Heeney was waiting to hear "nine" before arising. When he learned he had been counted out, he "protested strenuously," and the crowd "broke into a deafening roar of disapproval." New York Times
