1921-02-21Happy Littleton15-1-0
Louisiana Auditorium, New Orleans, Louisiana, USALKO415
From the New Orleans Times-Picayune (Jack Kincaid). It was soon clear that Denny did not have the strength necessary to hold off the powerful Littleton, who punished his opponent with body smashes. The knockout came in the last 12 seconds of round four. Littleton flattened Denny with a left hook that landed high on the cheek bone.

1920-09-12Eddie O'Hare7-0-0
Heinemann Park, New Orleans, Louisiana, USAWDQ915
O'Hare refused to continue, saying Denny used a mentholated preparation which blinded him. "For eight rounds, O'Hare won easily." O'Hare complained that Denny's face was smeared with something that was burning his eyes. "The referee examined Denny, but found nothing." O'Hare returned to the attack and subjected Denny to a battering, but then stopped and refused to continue. "The referee had no option but to disqualify him." (New Orleans Times-Picayune).
1920-08-02Martin Burke11-2-0
Tulane Arena, New Orleans, Louisiana, USADPTS1515
This was a furious fight. Burke was clearly ahead after 11 rounds, but Denny won the next three decisively. Martin got an edge in the 15th round. Source: the New Orleans Times-Picayune.

1920-06-14Martin Burke9-1-0
Tulane Arena, New Orleans, Louisiana, USAWPTS1515
According to the New Orleans Times-Picayune, this was a great fight. Denny set the pace and landed often with left jabs and right crosses. Burke did a lot of body-punching and might not have gotten the credit that he deserved, perhaps because he had a big weight advantage.
