According to the Boston Globe, Gardner had the best of the fight, which was a prearranged draw (equivalent to no decision). The fight was poor and the club tried to have the fight ruled "no contest."

DQ14/15
Coliseum, Hartford, Connecticut, USA
According to the Boston Globe, Byers fought George Gardner, not George Gunther, despite the Police Gazette's statement saying that he fought Gunther. It is very unlikely that they would have gotten Gardner's name wrong because he was obviously very well known in the Boston area. Also, the Police Gazette Sporting Annual in various editions has Byers fighting Gardner. NY Evening World reported "George Gardner, of Lowell".

In the fourth round Stift knocked Byers down twice, But Byers was strong and before the round ended he knocked Stift down twice. Stift did a lot of hugging in the last two rounds and the decision should have gone to Byers. Brooklyn Daily Eagle

Byers was scheduled to fight Jack Bonner, who failed to appear. O'Brien agreed to box Byers three rounds and quit in the third. This should not be considered as a serious fight.
