"In the fourth round the Californian went in for blood, and Lieutenant Gillingham called a halt after Choynski had struck Smith on the chin with a straight left-hander which caused the "cyclone" to drop on one knee." (Philadelphia Inquirer)

Cronheim's Theatre, Hoboken, New Jersey, USALTKO2325
referee: Jere Dunn
"The fight was well worth looking at, and had it not been that one side of the ring was formed by a brick wall and that Smith's head was not so hard as that wall, the result might have been different (...) The next and last round opened fiercely . Both men were badly bruised and bleeding freely. Godfrey landed a straight left hander that sent the Western man reeling across the ring. His head came in violent contact with the brick wall and the fight was virtually over. Smith staggered to the center of the ring and Godfrey swung for his jaw. Before another blow could be struck the referee interfered and declared Godfrey the winner." (Brooklyn Daily Eagle)

"At the beginning of the seventh round the friends of the principals began to quarrel. The ropes were broken down and the fight became general, everybody hammering right and left regardless of whom he struck. The fight ended in general all-around slugging match, while the pugilists were rushed into the cars and locked up." (The St. Louis Republic)
