1905-09-29Kid Scaler0-2-0
Armory Hall, Walla Walla, Washington, USALTKO220
Denny's seconds threw up the sponge. "The crowd considered the fight a fake, although it was plain from the start that Scaler was the better man. Denny was knocked down three times and took the count. Until nearly midnight it looked as if the fight would be called off, as box receipts were only $268, while a purse of $500 had been guaranteed. Scaler refused to fight for less than $500. At last, after collecting $27, they were persuaded to enter the ring with the result above stated." Spokane Spokesman-Review
