Ripped from a Detroit daily (Date lost) - Big Joe McAuliffe fought twice losing one to Joe Choynski and stopping Peter Felix in the other...Chuvalo defended his North American title against Hank Griffin ripping pile-drivers to his body...Frank Slavin landed only 86 punches in a losing effort against the Black Prince Peter Jackson...In their rematch Sullivan got the referee's decision over Joe Goddard but got pelted by garbage from the crowd...Janos Ruthaly the Austrian heavyweight took the European championship from Charlie Mitchell in the latter's first defence then informed the press he had changed his name to Jack Root...

Excerpts from the weekend evening edition of the Montreal Star...Following his recent triumphs over British Empire heavyweight champion Bob Fitzsimmons and the California Giant Big Joe McAuliffe, Joe Choynski has wired a challenge to world champion James J. Corbett to meet him for a side wager of $2,500 and any purse offered by an American promoter..."Sunny Jim" Coffroth of Los Angeles California has promised Corbett a 75% share of a $25,000 purse against any of the three top contenders named by the International Boxing Union...Bob Fitzsimmons arrives soon in England aboard the steamship Orion and sends word he will defend his title against Canada's George Godfrey currently residing in Britain and any other worthy challenger...Peter Jackson's recent victories over George Chuvalo and Frank Slavin have made him the public's number one choice to challenge for the world title but he must sit in the waiting room outside the champion's door....

Clippings from the Windsor Star and Coaltown Gazette...Odds favouring Fitzsimmons dropped considerably when he made an appearance at ringside and was markedly out of his usual condition...Charlie Mitchell who sat opposite the Australian's corner was heard to remark that Fitzsimmons had not taken Godfrey seriously as an opponent despite the latter's recent record...Fitz weighed in at 171 1-2 and Godfrey at 168 even, and was trained to the peak of condition...Lanky Bob's manager immediately lodged a protest with the IBU championship committee claiming his fighter was rising when the referee's count reached ten...Fitzsimmons confronted Godfrey later and demanded a rematch...In a preliminary bout Charles Kid McCoy won the verdict over George Gardner the Irish heavyweight...

New York's famed Metropolitan Athletic Club offered a $30,000 purse to Corbett and Choynski yesterday but both men declined, advising the board of that club that they had already agreed to box under the aegis of the Olympic AC of San Francisco...Corbett's chief sparring partners Jim Daley and "Con" McVey opened his camp near Sausalito, California...Peter Jackson had fought both men, intended to work Choynski's corner, and opined to eager journalists that the coming battle would be a good one.

Jackson: I expect a fast and furious contest from both men. Corbett has a slight edge in cleverness and ease of movement but Choynski packs a bigger punch and will more willingly press the attack.

John L Sullivan: Corbett is a shifty character by all accounts. He outpointed Jackson and I hear he out-boxed Choynski over a short distance. I like Joe's chances though. He is a true battler and has more heart than that dude Corbett.

George Chuvalo: Tough call. Corbett is hard to tag with a solid punch. Choynski will have to wear him down unless he catches Corbett early. Depends a lot on their condition going in and mental preparation. If I was putting down a wager I'd have to go with Corbett.

Hank Griffin: Choynski's a tough bird. We fought a draw last year in Frisco. He can surely punch! Nearly had me down in the last round. As for Corbett, he took the decision when we fought in Colma a few months before I fought Joe. Real pretty boxer but not much power in his punches. I hear Chuvalo picked Corbett so I guess I'll side with Choynski. No offence, George, but he can't pick winners to save his life.

Clipped from the July 25 1891 Halifax Chronicle Evening Edition...Hank Griffin took Sullivan's American title away with a 12 round decision in his hometown courtesy of Referee Bat Masterson...Bob Fitzsimmons bounced back from his loss to Godfrey with a workmanlike thrashing of South Afrikanner Kallie Knoetze...Jimmy Bivins gains a measure of revenge in a rematch with Young Peter Jackson....George Chuvalo met with multiple travel obstacles and failed to appear in Vancouver but was replaced by young Jerry Quarry of California in the match with Joe Goddard...Big Joe McAuliffe copped the referee's decision over Steve O'Donnell at the famed Melbourne Boxing Club then boarded a steamer for America...Hard punching Pat Killen won the recently vacant Pacific Northwest heavyweight championship in a gruelling brawl with Mervine Thompson the Cleveland Thunderbolt...

Excerpt from the Los Angeles Herald...[Interesting bit of trivia. In 1921 the New York State Boxing Commission banned the use of a rubber mouthpiece or gumshield or any similar device following the Jack Britton-Ted "Kid" Lewis fight in which Lewis used one despite protests by Britton that it was an illegal "Shock-absorber".]

From the Halifax Chronicle Aug 5, 1891...George Godfrey of Canada defended the Empire title with a decisive win over a very game Battling Ed Corcoran at London's prestigious National Sporting Club...Martin Julian, manager of ex-champion Bob Fitzsimmons, later challenged Godfrey to meet his man for a side wager of £5,000...Peter Maher climbed off the canvas to deliver a knockout blow to Irish Jack Burke before a white-tie crowd at Parnell's in Dublin...Al McCabe alias "Big Six" wiped the floor with Kid Carter in taking a six round decision and guaranteed himself bigger paydays ahead...Frank Childs was methodical in his dismantling of tough Sailor Joe Daley and immediately after wired his defi to Jake Kilrain to come to Chicago...

Clipped from the late edition of the Montreal Star....Betting on the Corbett-Jackson fight has been heavy in the pools around San Francisco and in others at Los Angeles and New York and as far away as London and Sydney...One Coaltown "entrepreneur" with the colourful sobriquet of "Beagle-Nose Bailey" is offering odds of 8 to 5 on Corbett...Following his victory over George Godfrey the new Empire champion Bob Fitzsimmons has sent his baggage aboard the steamer Nordlingen bound for America...George Chuvalo and Joe Goddard are set to meet in Oakland for a purse of $3,000 according to promoter Jimmy Cafferty...Bakari Olokun former labourer turned prize fighter and a native Afrikan is South Afrika's latest boxing sensation....[Editor's Note: Due to a mix-up at the telegraph office the last round of the Fitzsimmons-Godfrey fight was incorrectly reported. It was ended in the third round.]

From Mitt Slingers Magazine...(I found this more accurate depiction. Corbett was definitely more of an exhibitionist than Jackson and under IBU rules they wouldn't be allowed skin-tight driving gloves.) Note the unpadded ring floor, another breach of IBU rules.
