This was the first time in Montreal history that the no-foul rule was enforced, to avoid any possibility similar to the recent Huat-Newsboy Brown tangle.
"The contest was so one-sided that it became tiresome to the thousands who gathered around the ringside and many kept calling to Brown to go on and knock Huat out.
" Montreal Gazette

A semifinal bout of the NYSAC's flyweight elimination tournament. Huat is the European Flyweight Champion at this time.
