Toronto, Ontario, CanadaLPTS88
referee: Lou Marsh
This was part of the third round of a world flyweight elimination tournament sponsored by the Shamrock Athletic Club, with the winner to meet Eugene Huat. There was a companion flyweight elimination tournament being held by Tom McArdle in New York at this time. Toronto's Globe newspaper reported that Tex Rickard had started a world fly tourney earlier in New York City, but he did not finish it due to the small crowds. Toronto, however, always had drawn big crowds for the "little guys."
