With Dime scaling 130lbs to Marshall’s 126, the former’s American title claim at the weight was technically at stake. According to the ''Brooklyn Eagle'', Marshall started the better but Dime was soon into his stride, sending in blows from both hands with machine-like regularity. Back came Marshall, working the body well, before Dime picked up the pace again and sailed in to win the last round by a fair margin, thus impressing the referee. Afterwards a great deal of sympathy was expressed for Marshall and although the decision was a fair one it was generally felt that had the contest been for endurance the result could have been a different one.
