Windsor, Ontario, Canada
"Milburn Saylor, of Indianapolis, left Windsor today with a slightly darkened reputation among fight fans. In his eight round argument with Tommy Devlin, of Philadelphia, last night before the local club, Saylor was guilty of rather questionable tactics, and, while he kept on the good side of the foul line, according to the referee, there were murmurings among the fans. When the final gong sounded (...) the battle was declared a draw. But if the Philadelphian had had a punch in place of a shove things would have gone badly for Saylor. Devlin landed about three blows to Saylor's one." (Fort Wayne News)
