Convention Hall, Kansas City, Missouri, USALTKO1215
referee: Edward W. Smith
Hammer's manager "stopped the bout to prevent his man from being punished farther after Hammer had been knocked down for the count of three. The fight was to have gone fifteen rounds. The knockdown in the twelfth round was the only one scored during the bout. Of the eleven full (rounds) fought by the two men, Leonard had eight, Hammer led in two, while one was even." (Daily Review). After the bout Billy Gibson, Leonard's manager, said that "Hammer hurt Leonard more in that one bout than 100 other opponents had done" Evening Review (Philadelphia). Leonard would later concur that Hammer "gave me the worst licking of my career."

Mixed results in newspapers: Fort Wayne News reported win for Dundee;
Decatur Review reported a draw; wire services reported "majority of reporters" had it a draw. Update: Extensive description and round-by-round coverage gives fight to Dundee. Source: Chicago Tribune. The Times(East Chicago)reported a tough fight but a win for Dundee 7/5/1916: "The Italian was too clever, although the Swede kept trying at all times and put up a fight which will in no way belittle his pugilistic prowess. Both played for the body when fighting at close quarters, and their bodies were a crimson color when they quit."
