From the May 1891 issue of Mitt Slingers Magazine...The IBU dictates that Jim Corbett must defend his title against someone in their top ten rankings but allows him to pick anyone from that group for his first defence, insisting that his next opponent, should he prevail, be the number one contender...Bob Fitzsimmons has defended his Empire championship against Tut Ryan the best available challenger in Australia and next plans on fighting either Big Joe McAuliffe or Joe Choynski, both visiting from America...Canadian and North American champion George Chuvalo whipped Frank Slavin at Chicago and has signed to meet Peter Jackson if the latter will accept a percentage of the gate rather than a guaranteed purse...
