St. Denis Theatre, Montreal, Quebec, CanadaLPTS1010
referee: Georges Rivet
A "colossal burlesque," was the general opinion of the 5,000 assembled, with Smith taking the count of nine on several occasions "without apparently being hard hit." Johnson "did not take the fight seriously, other than from the box office end, and his much touted effort to stage a comeback fell by the wayside." Montreal Gazette
