"The contest was marked by continual clinching. During the early part of the fight Stribling cut Shade's mouth, and kept the blood flowing during the ten rounds. Both fighters finished strong." Montreal Gazette
(Meanwhile Stribling, a Macon high school student at this time, was suspended from school for having too many absences. He had to hire a tutor to follow him on the road.)

4th Regiment Armory, Jersey City, New Jersey, USALNWS1212
Newspaper win for Greb (World News) The Pittsburgh Post said that Greb gave Shade a terrific beating and won every round. Billy was bewildered by Greb's speed and Harry probably could have stopped him if he wanted to. It should be noted here that Greb's wife, who was very ill at this time, died soon afterward.

Australian middleweight title
"Tommy held and hit frequently, and used the heel of his hand occasionally. For this latter offense he was cautioned once. But never a whimper of protest was heard from Shade. Squealing is unknown in the vocabulary of the fighter. Billy Shade has it in him to become great as a boxer."

"Davis opened up with his famous 'Mary Anne' in the last chapter, but his wallops were missing their mark when Shade began firing his guns. It was a thrilling fracas from then on, with Shade shooting in hard rights and lefts, which had the Everett boy hanging on." Everett Daily Herald.

This was not Frankie Denny, most likely an imposter fighting under an alias. The real Frankie Denny fought in a different bout on the card.
