THE PRIZE RING.
Tkc Coi-Mara Ftarht at Davenport Satarday
The lO-round contest between
Thomas Cox, of this city, and James
Mara, of Iowa City, took place at
Northwest Turner hall, Davenport,
Saturday evening,' and while it was
declared a draw it was clearly Cox's
fight. There was a round contest
between Harry Toher and , George
Jackson, the latter colored, as a cur
tain raiser, and at 11:30 the, contest
of the evening was announced.
Cox was the first to enter the ring,
with Danny Hurley and Zeke Mur
dock as his seconds. A moment
later Mara entered with Harry Mc
Coy and L. Muhs as his seconds.
Billy' O'Donnell, the light-weight
pugilist of Omaha, was chosen offi
cial time-keeper, while Jim Murdock
acted as time-keeper for Cox. John
Masterson acted for Mara. Cox won
the toss for corners, and George
Rispen was chosen referee, and dis
played that cool-headed ness which
has marked Cap's base ball career.
John Finnigan was master of .cere
monies. Cox weighed 150 pounds,
while Mara weighed 156. Before the
fight J. G. Jasper, of Butte City,
Mont., came upon the stage and
challenged any man to fight 10
rounds or a finish contest for from
f200 up, to weigh between 160 and 180
Referee Rispen introduced the men
and a moment later time was called
and they faced each other for the
first time. Both were alike, cautious,
and walked around the ring each
leading, but falling short. There
were a few light exchanges and the
round ended with honors about even.
In the second round Oox started to
force the lighting, following Mara
into his own corner and then onto the
ropes. There was frequent clinching
and a few stiff body blows were land
ed by each. Mara managed to get in
his left on Cox's wind, but the latter
returned it with interest a moment
later with a force to the ropes and a
stiff punch on Mara's neck. The
third round was characterized by the
display of some science on the" part
of Mara. Cox was as usual forcing
the fighting and his opponent acted
entirely on the defensive, seeming
desirous of displaying his cleverness
in avoiding punishment. The round
ended in clinches and some light in
fighting. At the opening of the
fourth both were eager and some stiff
punching followed. Mara pursued a
peculiar habit of yelling every time
Cox forced him. Cox, however, kept
up the fighting, and had decidedly
the best of the round. Round five
was a repetition of the f aurth, except
that both were playing for the oth
er's wind. In the sixth. Cox slipped
in leading, and fell, but was up again
in an instant, and the round was
nothing but a series of clinches,
Mara seeming, to show the best wind
at the end of the round. The sev
enth round was tamer; both walked
around and led lightly, but no heavy
blows were struck and the round
ended without any damage to either.
In the eighth there was some hard
fighting again. Both men's wind
was good and Mara again resorted to
his defensive tactics, landing fre-
quennv, wnicn eacn time ended in a
The Crowd Beromet Weary.
The crowd by this time had got
pretty well worked up and was just
in shape for what followed. When
time was called for the ninth. Cox
was out of his chair and into Mara's
corner like a flash, and before the
latter could gather himself tosether,
Cox landed a couple of hard punches
on Mara s neck and breast. The lat
ter was forced back against his own
chair, but his seconds shoved him
out against Cox and a clinch fol
lowed. Had Mara's seconds left the
ring as they should have done. Cox
could have punched his man sillv
helore lie could recover himself. As
it was, the crowd yelled and hooted
and it was with diflicultv that thev
were kept quiet. This seemed to
scare Mara somewhat and he clinched
Cox at everv turn. During the lat
ter part of the ninth and also the
tenth round, there was more clinch
ing and in lighting. Cox gettin"- the
best of it by keeping continually at
uis man. tsotn were sparring for
wind when the round ended. It was
plainly Cox's fight, and although
Referee Rispen did not award it to
either, it being a 10-round contest
for points, Mara was plainly bested.
