Arena, Halifax, Nova Scotia, CanadaDPTS1515
referee: Kinch
Prior to the bout a challenge was issued by Joe Uvanni to meet the winner. In round seven, MacDonald landed one of his trademark wild swings and dropped McKinnon for a brief count. MacDonald got in two more smashes to the jaw, then McKinnon grabbed and held on. McKinnon was obviously the cleverer boxer, but MacDonald was easily the harder puncher; so those fans who favoured clever ringcraft thought McKinnon the winner and those who looked for wild mayhem backed the local lad.Acadian Recorder, September 2, 1916.

In the sixth, Burke sprained three ligaments in his left arm just below the elbow and fought one handedly from that time on.
