Eliminator for the NYSAC World Lightweight Title
Originally scheduled for 12 rounds, it was declared a draw by Referee Purdy and Judges Mathison & Shortell. According to the New York Times, the 7,000 witnesses thought Seeman clearly had won and began to uproar. But they cheered when Seeman was announced the winner after the three extra rounds.
