referee: John R. Bennett
Fought at 126lbs. The bout was close, until McClelland dropped Oleson with a right hand about two minutes into the 16th round. "McClelland forced Oleson to the ropes. The Swede was cornered. He tried to side-step out of danger. Jack feinted with his left and then, with terrific force, brought the right over to the jaw and Oleson was down like a log." - Globe & Mail. The spectators prevented Oleson from rolling right out of the ring, and he managed to beat the count, before being dropped two more times. Oleson dragged himself up using the ropes after the third knockdown, but Referee Bennett had seen enough.

The match was made for 124lbs. Oleson's manager claimed the forfeit, though Callahan refused to pay as he felt he wasn't given enough notice. This left it up to the Crescent Club to pay up, which they did. The decision was not popular with the crowd, though The Globe felt it was fair.

Results from the Chicago Tribune. The bout was even until the final round, in which Campbell landed frequently and had Oleson (fighting as "George Stead") in distress. According to the Tribune Campbell "...had a long lead on this round and many thought he was entitled to the decision on this alone. Referee Hogan thought otherwise and declared it a draw."
