Coliseum, Chicago, Illinois, USAWPTS610
According to the Chicago Tribune, Marquart was refused permission to come out for the sixth round because of a broken blood vessel high on the right side of his forward, suffered in an accidental clash of heads. The Illinois Athletic Commission members present at the fight decided to call it a six-round decision instead of a technical knockout. Marquart was well in front after five rounds and would have answered the bell for the sixth round if not prevented from doing so. The fight was scheduled to go ten rounds.

Laurel Garden, Newark, New Jersey, USALPTS88
With 4 rounds each, the verdict was given to Cochrane "due to penalties called on Roth." (New York Times) Actually, a scandalous situation developed. Referee Frank Scully's decision caused a riotous response because nearly everyone thought that Roth won easily. Someone jumped in the ring and slugged Scully on the jaw, knocking him cold. After he recovered he apparently discovered that he had made a scoring error and reversed his decision. Later, after he reached his dressing room, he announced that the original decision stood and the announced change was to "save my life from the mob." Next morning State Athletic Commissioner George E. Keenan suspended Scully and temporarily shut down the Dreamland Sporting Club, which put on promotions at Laurel Garden, because of a lack of special police protection.

Two seconds after the knockdown, the bell rang. His seconds worked on him and he went back for the sixth round groggy.
