McGraw was the aggressor. George Alderton of the Lansing State Journal said that "if there was a decision to be made we would be given it to McGraw on points without much hesitation," but spent much of the rest of his report describing how cleverly Callahan fought. (Source: Herb Goldman).

There is uncertainty as to this result; one New York newspaper has it as a 10-round win for Callahan and another has it as a 7-round no-contest affair.
