Many sources recorded a draw in this encounter, but as can be seen on this page, the New York Times awarded the verdict to Coffey.
"Jim Coffey and Bill Brennan today were still hunting for a way to settle the Irish championship question. (Apparently the writer didn't realize that Brennan was of German descent!) They battled 10 rounds to a draw last night. Coffey several times was groggy, but Brennan was unable to put over the finishing touches." -Referee: Billy McPartland(Sandusky Star Journal)
