1925-10-26Harry Wills63-6-3
1st Regiment Armory, Newark, New Jersey, USALTKO112
time: 2:02 | referee: Harry Lewis
The bout ended abruptly when one of Johnson's handlers tossed the towel of defeat into the ring. The New Jersey Boxing Commission took no action at first and the fighters were paid. But only a day or two later it barred Johnson from New Jersey rings for life, so he retired to his ranch in the Northwest never to fight again.

Pavilion, Seattle, Washington, USAWPTS44
referee: Adolph Schacht
As soon as Referee Schacht announced his verdict for Johnson, Meehan, "with a show of berserker rage, rushed Schacht as he started to go through the ropes." Meehan began swinging at the referee, but missed and hit the ropes instead. Johnson stepped in to restrain Meehan. When the police arrived, Meehan began acting goofy and said that he was only kidding. Seattle Daily Times
