Brown suffered cuts, bruises and a brain concussion after being mobbed by enraged fans. The referee stopped the bout after having warned Brown three times for using illegal tactics. Brown so angered the crowd that they stormed the ring, trashed ringside seats, broke down the ring posts, and ripped up the canvas. They also piled into Brown with their fists. One slugged him with a walking stick. At least 20 were pummeling Brown when policemen fought their way through and rescued him. By then he was bleeding and semi-conscious. It was another 20 minutes before the arena was eventually cleared.

When Judge Dr. James Sparks, commander of the American Legion in France, cast a vote for Brown, a riot broke out among the fans (who thought hometown boxer Francis had won), and Sparks was badly beaten up. Several hundred gendarmes were required to save him. Sparks had agreed with the French judge, while the Italian judge favored Francis. The match was officially declared "no contest" because Sparks's score card had been destroyed by the mob before he could hand it in. The next day the IBU awarded the bout to Brown.

This was the first time in Montreal history that the no-foul rule was enforced, to avoid any possibility similar to the recent Huat-Newsboy Brown tangle. "The contest was so one-sided that it became tiresome to the thousands who gathered around the ringside and many kept calling to Brown to go on and knock Huat out." Montreal Gazette
