"O'Brien appeared to be in better condition than his opponent and was fresher at the finish. He floored McKeever in the third round and the latter remained down seven seconds. McKeever was the aggressor throughout the bout, but he received much more punishment than O'Brien. The bout was considered a good one. (Daily Northwestern)
