1921-09-01Harry Bramer16-14-5
Riding Hall, Fort Russell, Wyoming, USADNWS1010
By prior agreement this was fought as a no decision fight, as the contract for Puryear's next fight forbade him entering decision contests. According to the Wyoming State Tribune this was a very tame bout, with the pair 'merely hugging each other during ten rounds, occasionally exchanging pats, slaps and pepless punches.'

Baseball Park, Moline, Illinois, USADNWS1010
"Conflicting verdicts on the Mason-Puryear bout here last night made both of the participants winners. According to many of the fans Frankie Mason, of Fort Wayne, was easily the winner over Earl Puryear, of Tulsa Okla., by straight punching in the latter part of the no-decision ten round bout. Other opinions have it that Puryear outboxed Mason by an easy margin. Both sides agree that the battle was quite even on points. About 2,000 fans attended the bout at the league park open arena, and enjoyed one of the cleverest and cleanest battles in many years." (Fort Wayne News and Sentinel)
