1916-01-24Richie Mitchell5-0-1
Music Hall, Cincinnati, Ohio, USADNWS1010
referee: Lou Bauman
The Cincinnati Enquirer gave Rivers 7 of 10 rounds. (Reno Evening Gazette): "Joe Rivers of Los Angeles and Ritchie Mitchell of Milwaukee fought ten rounds to a newspaper draw here last night. In the earlier rounds, Rivers forced matters and landed with telling force in the infighting. Mitchell's hard lefts evened up matters in the eighth and ninth and gave him an edge. In the ninth Rivers slipped in a clinch and injured his left ankle, but rallied desperately in the tenth, sending Mitchell partly through the ropes."
