Peters gave Anderson a "boxing lesson that lasted for ten rounds" thereby "upsetting the ideas of many fight fans who thought Anderson would get Peters in a corner and put him to sleep with one punch in the third or fourth round. Peters took eight of the ten rounds." (Reno Evening Gazette)

W-TKO
"Eddie Anderson, the Wyoming cowboy, won the main bout at the Southside arena last night from Louie Rogers, of San Diego, on a technical knockout, when Rogers was unable to come out of his corner to begin the fifth round. Early in the first stanza Rogers received a deep cut over his left eye, the blood from which hindered the San Diego lad during the remainder of the fight, and was ultimately the cause of his forfeiture in the fifth round. Nevertheless, Rogers more than held his own during the remainder of the match, and both boys had the fans in an uproar all the way." (Nevada State Journal)
