Lewis "stepped into the fistic limelight when he won a popular decision over" Morgan. "Morgan was on the defense most of the time but tired fast in the last two rounds to take a neat beating. Tod threw everything he had into an attack in the third round and won the canto by a good margin but the furious pace slowed him up and made him a target for some hard punches. He was cut over both eyes." Everett Daily Herald.
