referee: John R. Bennett
Fought at 136 pounds. Deputy Chief Stuart ordered referee Bennett to stop the bout after Kearns had committed "two or three" fouls. "The Chicago man is a rangy two-hand fighter and pummelled Kearns' face until it looked like raw beefsteak... Kearns struggled with the Canadian rules which insist upon a clean break." - Toronto Star
