Police Gazette had Gans winning, though they wrote that this was the best fight of Lewis's career. Trenton Times reported all rounds for Gans, except for 4th, which was even. Associated Press reported that neither men had an advantage. NY Evening World reported that Gans gave Lewis a terrific beating, and only in one rounds was Lewis able to fight back some. The Philadelphia Item (most authentic of the sources because it had a reporter on the scene) called the fight a draw.

 W  
NWS6/6
Washington S.C., Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA
Philadelphia Inquirer / Boston Journal (same report) reported that "it was Turner's bout at every stage, and that he did not win more impressively was due to the fact that he did not care to extend himself".
Associated Press wire reported that Turner "displayed his superiority over" Gans, and that "it was Turner's bout at every stage and the fact that Gans was on his feet at the finish was due to his opponent's generosity".There is strong suspicion that the above reports were personally motivated to "hype" Turner. The Philadelphia Item, Philadelphia Record, Philadelphia North American (re-printed in Baltimore American), Baltimore American, Baltimore Sun, Pawtucket Evening Times (same report) and Trenton Times reported Gans the winner. The Washington Times, while not having a report of its own, commented that "The Philadelphia papers and the leading sporting sheets of New York are a unit in agreeing that Gans was a winner after the first two rounds and would have been clearly entitled to a decision had one been given. In the face of this, the reports in the Baltimore papers and in the local morning papers are to the effect that Gans was "outclassed" and was a comparatively easy mark for the California negro. This divergence of opinion does not look good, and the inference seems to be that there is a play for a return match to be patronizes by the Washington and Baltimore publics." (This long comentary,entered previously by other editors (Deepak, Sergei Yurchanko) well illustrates the importance of giving preference to reports from the city in which a fight occurred.)

The San Francisco Chronicle reported that Walcott damaged ligaments in his left arm and that it was "useless from the 4th round on". It was announced before the fight that no title was at stake.
Referee Jack Welch gave 7 rounds to Gans, 5 to Walcott, with 8 even, but thought that Walcott's aggressiveness compensated Gans' advantage in cleverness.
Shortly after this fight Walcott accidentally shot himself in the hand and was out of action until January 1906.
