Excerpt from the sports section of The Coaltown Gazette July 1899....Sam Langford and Marvin Hart engage in a slam-bang battle at Hazard's Pavilion dishing out punishment for three solid rounds bringing the howling mob to their feet...A minute into round four Langford hangs a terrific left hook off Hart's jaw and he slumps to the canvas unable to hear referee Jack Welsh toll the ten count over him....World champion Jack Johnson sitting in a box ringside is wide-eyed at the sudden ending and quickly exits the arena....Protests are still being heard from the camp of now ex-American champion Fireman Jim Flynn over the hotly disputed decision of referee Harry Corbett in favour of fellow San Franciscan Al Kaufman....Few thought Flynn deserved less than a draw and two athletic clubs are agitating for a rematch to settle the matter....Over in France the nation is shocked over the ending of the fight between Sam McVea and their hero Raymond Berenger with close to one million francs lost in wagers....McVea waded into the lighter man and struck three blows in thirty-five seconds to lay the Frenchman hors de combat...The next evening in Glasgow's Blackburn Street Arena Denver Ed Martin gives a severe boxing lesson to unbeaten John "Sandy" MacNab forcing a stoppage in the 7th round with the local lad helpless on the ropes...In Brooklyn's Pelican Arena Joe Jeannette of Hoboken, NJ wins a technical knockout over New England's Jim Duncan in the 4th round of their ten round bout and later issues a challenge to Sam Langford to defend his NABF title...The very next night in the same arena Dan "Porky Flynn" wins in convincing fashion over Mike Schreck with a ten round decision causing the "Cincinnati Dutchman" to announce his retirement from the ring....Schreck tells reporters he just can't get into proper fighting shape any more...Hot off the wire from Johannesburg, South Afrika Bakari Olokun (13st 7lbs) has regained the national championship with a close-fought decision over Frans Botha (14st 7lbs)....

From the weekly British Boxing News September 1899....The EBU has released the rankings for the top contenders for the European heavyweight championship following the recent fiasco in London between EBU champion John L Gardner and France's Francois Marchand....Referee Eugene Corri called it a draw after an accidental clash of heads opened a serious cut over the eye of the challenger and the bout was stopped in round five by the order of the NSC's ringside physician as there were several prominent ladies present...Recent knockout victories over the Scots-Canadian Jack Stewart and Italy's Roberto Damiani have pushed Norway's Bjarni Thorsen to the rung just below Raymond Berenger who remains at No.1 despite his shocking loss to American Sam McVea at Cannes' Palais des Sports last July....

Excerpt from The Ballarat Independent Sept 1899....Empire champion Tommy Burns defends his title belt with a knockout in 6 rounds of ring veteran Owen Sullivan (21-7-1) after his scheduled opponent Des Quinlan decided to meet Bill Squires instead "..to get himself in top form to challenge Burns"...Former Australasian champion Billy McColl looks in peak form as he totally dominates Pat McIntyre over ten rounds while McIntyre appears to have declined considerably since his loss in May to Squires...Touring the colony from his home in South Afrika Mike Williams puts to rest any claims he has gone back with a savage beating and KO of highly rated Fred Preston inside 4 rounds improving his record to 16-5-0 [10] .....Sid Russell (13st 3lb) bulls his way through Raymond Berenger (13st) using a brutal body assault to wear the Frenchman down and put him on the canvas once in the ninth and again in the tenth before the referee stops the fight with seconds remaining....At Cape Town, South Afrika, two highly rated young heavyweights Ron Anderson (10-0-1) and Japie Smit (9-2-4) meet in front of a black tie crowd to decide local honours....Half way through round one Anderson catches Smit rushing in and knocks him cold with a roundhouse right and a beautiful short left hook to the jaw...Prior to this encounter unbeaten Harry Smith of Durban knocked out Harry Kruger of Cape Town in five furious rounds of slugging....
