From the Sept 1891 issue of Mitt Slingers Magazine...Hank Griffin drops from sight with his loss to Thompson...Jack O'Brien is warned by the IBU that he can advance no further in their rankings fighting only six round bouts...George Chuvalo is ranked above Peter Jackson but Jackson is already set to fight Corbett for the title...Tom Sharkey rises from No 8 to No 5 while George Godfrey drops from No 5 to No 9...John L Sullivan is recovering from his beating by Jimmy Bivins while his manager scrambles to make a match that will revive his fortunes...Fight promoters use the IBU's rankings to gauge what a fighter is worth at the box office...Having consulted with boxers, former fighters, managers and promoters, the IBU dictates what the cuts for purses should be with fighters in the top five commanding the largest percentage, those in the bottom five commanding somewhat less, the remaining 10 receiving less than the bottom five of the top 10, and the others left to the mercy of fight promoters...IBU dictates stipulate that no manager may take more than 20% of a fighter's purse and at least 5% of every purse must be banked in trust as a pension...

Clipping from the morning edition of the Coaltown Gazette...The IBU has ordered a rematch between Mervine Thompson and Hank Griffin siting irregularities in the actions of Griffin's cornermen and the rumours of possible bribes paid by certain gambling interests in Chicago....Griffin will need time for his hand to mend.

Maritime Telegraph Service report carried by Canadian dailies...Referee Hiram Cook used the IBU's round system and scored 7 rounds Jackson, 6 rounds Corbett with two rounds, the 6th and 10th even...Jackson was warned once for holding and hitting, but Corbett's seconds complained he was doing this throughout the match...Cook replied that he could have disqualified Corbett for his constant holding...Corbett's best rounds were the 8th and 14th when he had Jackson covering on the ropes...Jackson came closest to putting Corbett down in the 4th round when he landed several hard blows to the ribs and a looping right on the jaw...It was an overflow SRO crowd who paid some $15,000, 10% of which was divided between the fighters...A purse of $20,000 was split 65% to the winner and 35% to the loser...Jackson says he'll be ready to defend his laurels in two or three months time.

From the Halifax Chronicle Morning Edition...Pacific Northwest champion Joe Kennedy refused to defend his title for the money the Denver Athletic Club was willing to pay so the contest was reduced to ten rounds...George Godfrey eked out a decision over Kid MCoy at the National Sporting Club and then left for Portsmouth to catch a steamer for Canada...Bob Armstrong knocked down Frank Craig three times in the first round before the referee halted the action...Bob Turner was awarded the win on what the referee saw as a deliberate foul by Klondike Haynes after repeated warnings to keep his punches up...Big Joe McAuliffe returned to American rings with a one-sided and bloody verdict over Slaughterhouse Henry Baker at Mechanic's Pavilion...

Maher was not a distance fighter. He was KO or get KO'd. He was beating up Kilrain in every round and just ran out of petrol. I was expecting him to win but he couldn't get the job done. After huge effort in round 5 (when I thought the ref would stop it) he was spent.

From the Detroit Tribune...Mervine Thompson is as surprised as everyone when referee Dave Miller raises his hand instead of John L Sullivan's...English heavyweight Joe Beckett is said to be unbeaten in his last 12 fights...George Chuvalo defends his NABF title against a game Jerry Quarry with a Hail Mary left-hook out of nowhere...Former coal-miner Jack Munroe shows improvement with each fight and is expected to soon challenge for the Canadian championship...Seattle's Larry Frazier wins every round in his match with tough Joe Lannon...Gus Ruhlin the Akron Giant goes at big Ed Dunkhorst hammer and tongs putting the Human Freight Car down nine times...

From the Chicago Daily News...New York Evening World cartoonist depicts Corbett and Sharkey as decision is announced after their 10 round draw at Coney Island...At the Pacific Athletic Club Big Joe McAuliffe picked himself off the canvas in round one and proceeded to take the war to Frank Slavin putting the Australian down 5 times before referee Hiram Cook called a halt...An errant elbow opened a gash over Slavin's eye in the second and caused it to swell up and close shut by round six...

From the Evening edition of the Coaltown Gazette...The likely New England pugilist to share the top of the bill on the next Coaltown boxing card is Jim Duncan, heavyweight, a native of Bangor, Maine. He is 3-1-1 in his previous five bouts and is currently considered one of the best heavyweights in the New England area. Duncan stands an even six feet tall and generally fights at between 180 and 190 pounds though he has weighed as little as 178...He will likely face John "Sandy" Ferguson..

From the Halifax Chronicle afternoon edition...Action was so slow in the O'Brien-Bivins set-to that the referee twice had to stop and admonish both men to try harder...Bivins came on fast at the end but it was too late...Joe Kennedy retained his PacificNorthwest championship by a surprising stoppage of Joe Choynski who entered the ring looking in less than top form...Kallie Knoetze defended his South Afrikan title with a sluggish effort Referee Jimmy White rescuing Tom Ball after his third trip to the canvas...Young Bakari Olokun challenged Knoetze from ringside...Hank Griffin returned to the ring from his hand injury and stunned the crowd at Hazard's Pavilion with a knockout of Mervine Thompson in just :45 seconds of round one and regained his American championship...Peter Felix holds onto his Australia-New Zealand championship belt with a technical knockout of Steve O'Donnell in round two...Round one was cautious with only a few jabs thrown then in round two Felix feinted a left then put a short hard right to the jaw of O'Donnell that put him on queer street open to a left hook to the face...

Clippings from the scandal-mongering Montreal Recorder...[Note the gratuitous photo of actress Mattie Vickers soon appearing nightly at the Savoy Theatre.] George Chuvalo, currently ranked the Number One contender for world champion Peter Jackson, needs only to wait for the outcome of Jackson's upcoming fight with Bob Fitzsimmons to maintain his place in line...Jim Corbett's manager realizes his boy's stock has taken a bit of a dive following his less than stellar showing against Tom Sharkey in New York...Hank Griffin, fresh off his reclaiming of the ABA title from Thompson, is considering offers to fight either Philadelphia Jack O'Brien or Jim Bivins the Cleveland heavyweight...

From the Toronto Telegram...John L Sullivan the famed "Boston Strongboy" has announced his intention to travel from Boston to San Francisco taking on all comers in 4 round exhibitions...Frank Childs has offered to meet Sullivan in Chicago "if he dare show his face." and Big Joe McAuliffe says he salivates at the prospect of trading punches with the "Big bag of wind from Boston" and avenging his previous loss...James J Corbett has personally hurled the gauntlet down at George Chuvalo during an appearance by the latter on the stage at the Savoy Theatre in Montreal...In Cleveland local boy Gus Ruhlin took on hard-punching Pat Killen in the biggest challenge of his young career and stopped the Pride of the Northwest inside the distance...Sometime today Joe Kennedy (195 lbs.) and Fred Russell (205 lbs.) will climb through the ropes at the Empire Theater in Denver and battle for Kennedy's Pacific Northwest championship scheduled for 12 rounds...

From the Chicago Tribune....Fred Russell, now a Denver resident, withstood a pounding from Joe Kennedy in the first round and several terrific blows in the second before rushing the Californian into the ropes and smashing him to the ribs...the end came from a wild haymaker of a right that fans thought nearly took the champion's head off and deposited him in a heap halfway out of the ring where he was counted out and carried away by his seconds...So Russell has his 8th straight victory and is the new Pacific Northwest heavyweight champion...
