The referee "halted the fight, declared it no-contest and walked from the ring to conclude a highly unsatisfactory ring exhibition. The fans cheered Neal's action with one of the few cheers they were able to muster during the main event. From the opening round the fans voiced their disapproval of the contest vehemently. Cries of 'Throw them out' and hoots and booes resounded during and after every round." (Reno Evening Gazette)

"Foley took four of the six sessions on his willingness to fight, while Klick unbottled a burst of speed in the last round to almost even up the score. The veteran hit more solidly and more frequently, but the Californian with clever blocking and a right uppercut bested him in the infighting to keep the Canadian's lead short until Foley lifted Klick off his feet in the fifth canto with a right cross."
