The match lasted 110 rounds, over seven hours and 19 minutes. Andy Bowen had originally scheduled the fight with another opponent, however after dropping out of the fight, Jack Burke, who was the latter’s trainer, fought the bout instead for the Lightweight Championship.

It was reported that the fight went on for so long, that the spectators who stayed to watch the fight had fallen asleep in their seats. It was also recorded that at round 108, with no clear end in sight, referee John Duffy made the decision that if no winner had emerged in the next 2 rounds, the bout would be ruled a “no contest”. With both men having become too dazed and tired to come out of their corners, Duffy declared the match a no contest.

The fight took place at the Olympic Club. At Clouet Street is a section of brick fence that is all that remains of the 11-building complex that was destroyed by fire in 1896.
