I just made a correction on Boxrec for his 8/24/1916 bout with Leo Johnson. Have a look and tell me what you think. Sounds like a win for Cline to me, but I bumped it up to a draw rather than the win originally listed for Johnson. Until I can figure out if Jack Kincaid's opinion outweighs the other sources or not.
