- 1916-Oct: Prize-fighting is illegal in Oklahoma, but the state is considering legalizing it because Oklahoman Carl Morris, the original "White Hope", is considered a strong challenger for Jack Johnson's world heavyweight title. 
- 1931: At this time Oklahoma does not permit prizefighting, but does allow boxing exhibitions of up to 10 rounds. Decisions have to be given. The city of Tulsa exercised the "local option" and permitted 15-rounders.
