"CON" COUGHLIN IS EASY
FOR BOB FITZSIMM0NS
Philadelphia, Va., Oct. 1. "Con"
Coughlin, popularly known as the
"Irish Ciant,' was to have fought six
rounds with "Bob" Fitzsimmons last
night at the Washington Sporting
club, but he was so greatly outclassed
that he quit before the expiration of
the first round.
At no time during the two minutes

Coughlin have a show, and in that
brief time he was knocked down three
times. He seemed to be-scared and
wanted to quit before he did, but his

out viciously and hooked Coughlin on

the floor for four seconds. As soon
as lie regained his feet a right and

Coughlin appeared to be scared and
wanted to quit, but his seconds sent
him to the center of the ring. The
moment he put up his fists Fitz again
dropped him to the floor with a left
