Coliseum, Saint Louis, Missouri, USANCNC18
referee: George Siler
Griffo and Tracey had boxed for about one minute, when Griffo suddenly threw up his arms, sprang to the ropes and started making a speech. He claimed the taxi he was in collided with a streetcar and he was bruised so bad he could not continue. Brooklyn Daily Eagle
St. Louis Republic's reporter thought Griffo was drunk (from seeing him in the ring and from post-fight interview with him), and didn't notice any injuries from the previous night's accident.

Tattersall's, Chicago, Illinois, USALTKO88
referee: George Siler
"Tommy Ryan of Chicago whipped Tom Tracey in seven rounds and a quarter at Tattersall's last night. The fight was to have lasted eight rounds, but it was stopped to save a knockout. A draw had been agreed upon by the managers but Ryan wouldn't have it that way. He had Tracey down twice in the minute the eighth round lasted, but the St. Louis man got up in time to save himself from being counted out." Tracey was down five times total, and in the seventh round, Tracey was allowed to remain on the floor for fourteen seconds because the managers instructed the referee not to allow a knockout. Ryan looked ten pounds heavier than Tracey. (Chicago Tribune)
