Southside A.C., Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USAWTKO810
referee: Walter Houlehan
Tait appeared sadly out of shape, later claimed that he was a victim of favouritism by local ref. According to a ringside report, after the first knockdown in round 8, Tait rose and attempted to shake hands with Mitchell who wisely ignored the proffered mitt and dropped the Alberta boy again. Instead of giving Tait a count however, the ref stopped the bout in favour of Mitchell.

1916-04-07Freddie Welsh63-3-6
Auditorium, Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USADNWS1010
Newspaper decision from the Milwaukee Free Press
"Welsh forced the milling throughout the contest, Mitchell frequently meeting Welsh with lefts to the face and body. Some of the writers were of the opinion that Mitchell had a shade, while others thought a draw might be the better decision. Welsh appeared entitled to a slight advantage because of his forcing the contest from start to finish. He blocked numerous leads of the Milwaukee boy and left the ring without a mark. The first and second rounds were devoid of damage. In the third Welsh upset Mitchell with a left hook to the jaw. The fourth was even. Mitchell had the honors in the fifth and sixth. In the seventh Welsh caused Mitchell to bleed freely from the mouth and had the Milwaukee boy tiring. The eighth ended even. Welsh had a slight advantage in the ninth and in the tenth rocked Mitchell twice with right hooks to the jaw." (Nevada State Journal)

referee: Lou Bauman
The Cincinnati Enquirer gave Rivers 7 of 10 rounds. (Reno Evening Gazette): "Joe Rivers of Los Angeles and Ritchie Mitchell of Milwaukee fought ten rounds to a newspaper draw here last night. In the earlier rounds, Rivers forced matters and landed with telling force in the infighting. Mitchell's hard lefts evened up matters in the eighth and ninth and gave him an edge. In the ninth Rivers slipped in a clinch and injured his left ankle, but rallied desperately in the tenth, sending Mitchell partly through the ropes."

1914-11-23Peanuts Schieberl28-0-1
Southside A.A., Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USAWNWS1010
"When Ritchie Mitchell finished ten rounds with Schieberl tonight, there was no question of superiority, and the Milwaukee boy, who is climbing to the title region, eliminated one of his chief competitors in a battle in which Mitchell had a decided advantage in all except the first round. Schieberl took the lead in the first and had that round by a safe margin, but that was the end of his chances of victory. In the fifth Mitchell nearly had him out. Mitchell, in this round, smashed a right and left to the stomach, then followed with rights and lefts to the head." (Indianapolis Star)
