  • Location: Toronto, Ontario, Canada
  • Referee: Lou Marsh
  • Canadian Featherweight Title (1st defense of Gould)

Notes

  • Roy regains title, after losing it earlier on Sept. 21, 1923 to Curly Wilshur.
  • At first, Roy claimed the title by default, and the money forfeit, after Gould had weighed in over the Featherweight limit of 126 pounds. His friends convinced him to take on Gould anyway according to the Montreal Gazette
