Excerpted from The Australian Star - March 1896....The Olympia Athletic Club of Sydney attempted to organize a tournament to fill the vacant Australasian heavyweight championship following the death of Harry Laing only to see it fall apart due to injuries and disputes over purses and match ups....In the end the club chose former champion Joe Goddard and Armidale's Billy McColl to fight for the title at Sydney Stadium....Seeing no obvious challenger capable of drawing a large purse to defend his Empire Championship Corrie Sanders sails back home to South Africa to tend to his cattle and sheep farm in Eastern Cape province....Graduates of the Sydney Boxing Academy continue to forge ahead in the professional ranks pulling in good crowds in Sydney, Melbourne, and other boxing-mad cities on the East Coast...Among the top prospects are Bill Squires, Des Quinlan, Fred Preston and Sid Russell...Owen Sullivan follows his win over Bill Doherty with a scheduled match against Mick Dooley at the Gaiety Athletic Hall in Sydney sharing the card with a rematch between Tim Murphy and Jimmy Henry.....

Brady to meet at New York in three months time with the world title belt at stake Marquis of Queensberry Rules with a side wager of $3,000 and a $2,500 forfeit to be posted at the offices of the New York Evening World....Jack Johnson has wired challenges to Jeffries and Bob Fitzsimmons ignoring the one issued by Jimmy Bivins....In Toronto George Chuvalo bumped into John Scholes outside the Mutual Street Arena and offered him a shot at the NABF title with $5,000 up for grabs to the winner....Scholes told Chuvalo to speak to his manager....

Cut-out from The Toronto Telegram - May 1896....The EBU championship has changed hands with the stunning 4th round knockout of Roberto Damiani (28-10-0) by French idol Raymond Berenger (16-0) in front of a vociferous black-tie crowd at the Palais De Sport in Cannes....Although favoured by French books Berenger had been expected to win on points not by KO...At the New York Athletic Club in the semi windup Toronto's Ross Delaney (16-0-1) won a clear decision over the veteran Mexican Pete Everett (28-11-0)....In the main go Florida's Ray Mercer (24-10-2) stopped Toronto's Jack Stewart (18-4-2) in the 8th round of their 10 rounder...At Tattersall's in Chicago Denver Ed Martin (25-5-2) was dropped twice but still managed to get George Siler's nod over Jack Fallon (16-13-4) who had been unbeaten in his previous 11 fights....

P.S. Berenger is pronounced Bare-ahn-zhay.

From The Chicago Daily News - June 1896....Bob Fitzsimons says he's been contacted by the Sanders camp to help train the big South Afrikan for his fight with Jeffries but has not decided one way or the other....Jack Johnson comments in the Chicago press he expects Jim Jeffries to make short work of Corrie Sanders leaving the way open for himself later this year or early next....Mike Schreck is trying to lure Tommy Burns down from Canada to meet him in Chicago if his challenge to Gus Ruhlin is ignored but local boy John Willie wants another crack at the Cincinnati Dutchman....

Cutting from The Ballarat Independent - June 1896....Peter Jackson earns a sloppy decision over an out-of-shape Joe Goddard in front of a huge crowd at Sydney Stadium...Both men are cautioned for excessive clinching and hitting after the bell and Goddard loses points for low blows....South Afrika's Bakari Olokun fails to impress with a narrow decision over a stale-looking Steve O'Donnell....Bill Doherty surprises the mob by holding off rising star Des Quinlan and forcing a stoppage by referee Arthur Scott....Sid Russell looks good in dominating veteran Ned Callahan before knocking him cold inside the distance....

Clipped from The Los Angeles Herald - August 1896....Jim Jeffries dishes it out and takes plenty in return as he claims the referee's decision after fifteen bloody rounds at Coney Island...Corbett scores it 9 rounds for Jeffries 5 rounds for Corrie Sanders and one even....Corbett said later,"There was no feeling out rounds. They went at it hammer and tong from the first bell to the last. I never saw such a scrap and I've seen plenty. The fans got their money's worth tonight." ....In the only preliminary Morris Harris knocked out Fred Woods at 2:10 of round five....Sanders' supporters shouted his name to the rafters and cheered him even when the decision went against him...Jeffries suffered some damage to his right eye and left cheekbone and announced to the press gathered in his dressing room that he would not fight again for some months and would likely defend against one of his optional opponents possibly Sandy Ferguson or Denver Ed Martin....Sanders is nursing a broken left hand and plans on taking some time off at a friend's farm outside Montreal....
