After the fight, a well-known local sporting authority was asked how Jim Jeffries would do against Johnson. He replied:
"Jeffries will do well to stay in retirement. Johnson would probably leave the ring with his championship laurels. Johnson, in his battle with Kaufman, proved he is a master of the boxing game. There never was a time in the entire contest when the Californian had a chance. He was simply a chopping block for the champion."
