1904-02-15Dick Lewis1-3-3
Tivoli Theater, Lewistown, Montana, USADPTS2020
referee: George Arbuckle
Lewis often referred to as "Dude" Lewis and had to forfeit $25 for not making the stipulated weight. He (Lewis) resorted to his usual right and left swings, which, for the most part, landed harmlessly on the gloves of the clever Siddons.--(Fergus County Argus), 2/17/1904
1904-01-07Jim Heyward6-8-3
Tivoli Opera House, Lewistown, Montana, USADPTS2020
referee: George Arbuckle
"Heyward was by far the fastest of the two men, both with his hands and on his feet, but this speed was offset by the superior ring generalship of Siddons. The white boy (Siddons) showed the advantage of a long career by the manner in which he blocked the colored lad's blows."--(Fergus County Argus), 1/13/1904

1892-05-28Johnny Van Heest38-2-4
Metropolitan Club, New Orleans, Louisiana, USADPTS46
referee: Professor John Duffy
"The fight, owing to a peculiar system of management which fed the crowd on a variety show instead of bringing about the main event, did not begin until a few minutes to 10. It lasted until 1 o'clock, and as both men were fresh, both unhurt and both inactive to a large extent, the referee was requested to call it a draw, in order not to violate the Sunday law--that was the excuse announced." (New Orleans Daily Picayune)

Fort Yates, North Dakota, USAWDQ29
"The long talked of mill between Kallack, the Hollander of LaGrace, and Wm. F. Ambrosia, a private of F troop, Eighth cavalry, came off yesterday afternoon at a point about five miles below Winona... Ambrosia enlisted as a soldier about nine months ago under an assumed name. He is none other than George Siddons, the famous light weight pugilist who has fought and defeated such notables of the ring as Ike Weir, the Belfast "spider," Tommy Warren and others. This information is furnished by Ed Patterson, Bismarck's recognized sporting authority." (Bismark (ND) Daily Tribune)
