Henri Pilotte
Refereeing debut by Leitham, the former Canadian Bantamweight Champion who had retired the previous winter: "He received a great hand from the crowd, getting almost as big a reception as Pilotte when the announcement of the weights was made." Card sponsored by the Canadian Hockey Club; this "marked the club's return to the fistic scene after an absence of three years and a crowd of 2, 500 saw the show." Montreal Gazette
