Promoted by Police Gazette as Middleweight Championship of America, 154 lbs ringside, with winner to receive its diamond belt. Rules were of London Prize Ring and skin tight gloves.
Reagan and Dempsey fought in two locations, reached by tug on the shore of Long Island Sound. After 15 minutes of fighting, a rising tide at the site of the bout forced the spectators and fighters to move 25 miles away. Reagan's seconds tossed in the sponge after the 44th round.
Dempsey's leg ripped open by Reagan's spiked shoes. Dempsey blamed Donovan for the spiking. Brooklyn Daily Eagle

Arlington Hall, Long Island City, Queens, New York, USALPTS1010
The men fought ten rattling rounds and Reagan, a pupil of Mike Donovan, had decidedly the edge on his opponent. The referee, however, declared Wood, a protege of Arthur Chambers, the winner amid a howl of indignation. Mike Cleary threw a big pitcher at the referee's head and a general row was only prevented by the police clearing the hall. Brooklyn Daily Eagle
