22Hls ace battered to a pulp his
eyes closed his llpn puffed covered
with blood and staggering helplessly
about tho ring today Battling Nelson
conqucrer of Joe Gan was cacd
from a knockout In tho 40th round of
his fight with Ad Wolpast when Ref
eree Eddie Smith humanely stoppel
n most unequal contest Nelson
game to the very last stood In tho
center of tho ring and even though
he could hardly raise his hands
begged to be allowed to continue He
was led to his corner broken hearted
In tho opposite corner of the ring
tho now lightweight champion of the
world Ad Wolgost Cadillac Mich
was lifted to tho shoulders of his
trainers amid the cheers of the big
crowd
Only once during tho fight did Nol I
Bon have a chance the twent sec I
ond round when with n stinging
right cross to the Jaw ho staggered I
his opponent Before the round had
closed ho dropped Wolgast In the I
middle of the ring with a similar
blow and three seconds were tolled
before Wolgast regained his feet
Tho crowd prepared to leave the
arena tho word wont from bench to
bench through tho spectators that an
other boy had fallen victim to the
wonderful durability of the Dane
But In the next round Wolgast re
cuperated and from then on slowly
steadily but surely wore Nelson
down For twelve rounds before the
finish Nelson seemed bewildered and
his blows wore sent aa though he
held weights In his hands From the
Oth round Nelson could hardly seo
or hear the left side of hEn faco hay
log lost all semblance of UB former
contour He staggered and hung on
In the 37th round ho was all uiu out
but survived tho round
In tho 3Sth round John Robinson
Nelsons manager wanted to throw
tho sponge Into the ring but Abdul
the Turk ono of the seconds tore It
from his hands and throw It Into the
bucket From then on during each
round Roblneon protested on the
ergo of tears that his man was
beaten
1ien tho fortieth came Referee
Smith asked Nelson It ho wanted to
quit and Nelson unable to talk I
merely shook his head negatively
When thlrtysovon seconds of tho
40th round had gone and as darknea
was beginning to creep over tho
scene of tho fight and a full moon to
poop through the clouds Referee
Smith raised Wolgasts glove Into the
air and a nor lightweight champion
had come Into flstanla Both men
fought tho same Wolgast had out
generaled outboxed and all but out
gamed tho great Battling Nelson
After tho battle Wolgast scampered
out of he ring like a schoolboy and
galloped through the crowd Nelson
on tho other hand was taken out on
f the arms of his seconds As he was
carried through the crowd ho waq
cheered by the crowd for the remark
I able grit and gamenoss displayed
i tnlch as old ring followers say seldom
has been seen In the prize ring
Referee Smith made tho following
statement to the Associated Press
Wolgast fought Nelson at his own
game and beat him fairly and square
ly Nelson complaJned at times of
Wolgast butting but I paid little heed
ns It was simply a case of tho Battlor
getting the worst of a game where
both men wero equally guilty
Both men fought the same but
one had youth tho power to como
back vigor life and all that goes
with It while thirteen years of fight
Ing through which Nelson had gono
had sapped bin strength and loft him
without his old snap dash and stam
ina
Wolgast said after the fight
My fight today was Hlco a training
bout Only onco did ho bother me
and that was in the twentysecond
round NolRon hurt me more by but
ting me than anytmng else and I felt
funny for just a fow seconds r can
not say anything as to my future
plans but am ready to gvo any de
serving lightweights a chance
When Nelson was able to talk he
said
I am sorry they called the fight
off when they did I think I could
have stayed the fortyfive rounds but
have no complaint to mako
