Again they went to a'clirich, and in the
break Jeffries threw his left over to the
ribs; Corbett played for the body, but Jef?
fries crowded him and blocked. Jeffries
tried left lead to the' head, which Corbett
ducked beautifully, but Jeffries was hard
after him and sent right and left smashes
to body, which almost sent Corbett off his
feet. Jeffries then got wild, swinging both
hands to body, and Corbett sprinted to
avoid the punishment. Jeffries landed left
and right to body, and Corbett after jump?
ing back, ran into a straight left on the
face. Tiie round was altogether in'jeffries'
favor and Corbett seemed to be weakening
at the close.
Round Eight?Corbett rushed in with a
left to the body, which' was blocked, and
Jeffries forced him to the ropes With a right
to the chest. Corbett hooked left to head
and Jeffries countered to stomach: Corbett
hooked left to head and got-' away clean.
Jeffries made a bull rush, sending his left
to wind without a return. Jeffries kept on
forcing, but was very wild in his delivery,
as he missed three left hooks for :he head.
Corbett dodged all three in the smartest
manner. Jeffries kept on forcing the pace
and landed on the neck: Corbett counter?
ing with right hook to head. Corbett.
stopped in and got in a corking good right
on the ribs. The bell found them sparring.
Round Nine?Both led iefis to head and
clinched. Then Corbett hooked ieft to the
head and swung right to jaw, staggering
Jeffries. Corbett followed up with another
right swing to jaw, but it was not so
hard as the other one. Corbett came lr.
with a 'left to body, and in the break?
away a terrific right to the jaw made
Jeffries look very groggy. Corbett put
?his left and' right quickly to the 'left, ond
another hard left to the jaw. Jeffries sent
back hard left to the head. Corbett was
the cleverer in .the exchange which fol?
lowed, and landed his left with provoking
regularity on Jeffries' face, much to the
latter's detriment. This was certainly
Corbett's round, and the best round of
the .fight thus far.
Round Ten?Corbett opened with a left
to head and ducked the return. Again he
hooked left to the ea.r, blocking Jeffries'
attempt for the body. Jeffries then was
on the aggressive, but Corbett, quick as
lightning, sent left and right to face and
had the big fellow guessing before he knew
where he was at. Corbett kept forcing, arid
with another left to the nose made the
boiler-maker's nasal ogran bleed profusely.
Jeffries was very wild, swinging at ran?
dom, while Corbett kept landing left hand
jabs on neck and face. Jeffries made sev?
eral rushes, but to no purpose, and Cor?
bett's stock went booming. Corbett was
loudly cheered at the end of the round.
? Round Eleventh?Corbett opened with left
to the body, and Jeffries rushed him to
the corner, but failed to land effectively.
He tried a left swing for Corbett's head,
but Corbett dodged it and sent right and
.left to body. Corbett sent two left jabs
to Jeffries' mouth, bringing blood from his
lips. Jeffries seems to be rattled at this
stage, and Corbett found no difficulty in
getting his left to the face. Jeffries tried
several left swings, but Corbett got under
them and hooked his right hard over .to
body twice. Jeffries jabbed Corbett in face
under the jaw. Corbett did not seem fazed
by this blow, and walked to his corner
BETTING IS EVEN.
? Round Twelve?Even money is now be?
ing bet. Jeffries started out with a left
hook to head, but Corbett ducked it and a
clinch followed. They clinched three times
without a blow. Jeffries got right to body
and left to chest. Corbett hooking straight
left twice to the face..In a breakaway
Jeffries tried a right swing, but failed to
land, and Corbett jabbed left, twice to
face without a return. Jeffries assumed
a more crouching position than that which
he usually assumes, but Corbett straight?
ened him up with a right on the nose and
a left on the nose, which brought the
blood more freely, but in a break from a
clinch Jeffries crossed right to the head,
and at the close of the round Corbett put
a light left to chest.
Round Thirteen?Both were careful.
Jeffries tried left half a dozen times, but
Corbett got out of range. Jeffries tried
right again to head, but Corbett shifted
Inside of the lead and clinched. Je.ffrie3
hooked left to neck and rushed Corbett to
the ropes. Corbett came back quickly
and they clinched twice, without doing
any injury to each other. Jeffries made a
bull-dog rush, sending left to body and
right to the head, putting Corbett to the
ropes, staggering him. Jeffries crowded in
and forced the pace, which was evidently?
too hot for Corbett, and the bell sounded
nono too soon.
Round Fourteen?Both were fast 1n
answering the gong, each leading lefts,
but they failed' to land, and a clinch
followed. In a breakaway Corbett tried
to send right over, but Jeffries ^lodged
It; then Corbett sent two straight lefts

Ihanded Vsm?sh on Corbett's face and
Corbett returned with a straight left to
?the nose. Jeffries bled eoplously from
-the/nose, and 'Corbett sent two more
3efts to that organ. Corbett had the
call at the end of the round.
CORBETT THE AGGRESSOR.
(Round' Fifteen?Corbett was the ag?
gressor, sendin? left twice to face.
Jeffries- rushed, driving a pije-driver
right for the body which Corbett blocked
cleverly. Then Corbett hooked left to
the neck, while Jeffries tried three wild
swings for the head. Jeffries bored in,
but Corbett ducked beautifully. At close
quarters ' Corbett tried to evade left
lead for his head and slipped, but al?
though the blow landed, he recovered
quickly and stood upright when Iti looked
as if he should have gone to the floor.
Corbett's work was wonderful, and the
Jeffries people lookeil worried.
Round Sixteen?Corbett was up on his
toes at the call of time and sent left
to Jeffries* body. He hooked light left
to Jeffries" face, but Jeffries sent a right
heavily to Corbett's body. Corbett
jumped around as liveily as a cricket, and
when Jeffries missed a right swing he
landed left and right on Jeffries' face.
A breakaway. Jeffries put his right to
the ear, but Corbett countered on the
body. At close quarters again Jeffries
hooked' right* to the side of the. head,
and the referee was active in seeing
them apart when the bell rang.
?Round Seventeen?Corbett ran into a
left smash on the face, but countered with
hard left on the ear. Jeffries looked des?
perate, and rushed at Corbett like a wild
man. Corbett met his rushes with left
jabs to face, and the best that Jeffries
sent back was a right to the riKs. Com?
ing to close quarters. oCrbett drove right
to the body and hooked left' to the face.
Jeffries ?landed 'left to the body and then
drove his right hard for the chest, but
Corbett blocked the blow. A hard left on
body from Jeffries almost took Corbet;
off his feet, but Corbett held on piuckily
and skipped around out of danger, when
it looked as if he. was bound to lose. This
was Jeffries' round.
Round Eighteen?They went to a clinch
without landing a blow. Corbett hooked
left to jaw and blocked Jeffries' return
for the body. Corbett hooked a hard left
to jaw, but -was not so fortunate in es?
caping, as Jeffries put a hard left on the
chest. Jeffries tried right for the face,
but only !a.nded with his forearm on the
chin, and there were cries of "Look out
for that ei'.bow."' Then Jeffries hooked
left to head and Corhett drove right hard
to ribs. Corbett hooked his left to face
and blocked Jeffries' counter for the body,
keeping the big fellow at arms' length
until the round was over.
CORBETT KNOCKED 7JGWN.
Round Nineteen?Jeffries tried two lefts
for the body, but they were blocked. Then
