With height and reach in his favour, the challenger, Park (125¾), worked off the back foot throughout. But because of his negative tactics he was never in the contest with a chance of winning, even having a point deducted for butting in the ninth. At various stages, Esparragoza (125½), stalking and chasing, became extremely frustrated, but he did enough to win what was described by one reporter as the worst fight he had ever seen in the Orient.
