  • Canadian Bantamweight Title (Vacant title)

Notes

  • The Canadian champion, Bobby Eber, had refused to meet either Foley or Johnston. So the Ontario Athletic Commission and the Canadian Boxing Federation stripped him of the title and promised it to the winner of this bout.
  • However, Foley could not make weight, such that the Commission ordered his weight forfeit of $200 be paid to Johnston and awarded Johnston the title.
