BATTLING NELSON STOPS CORBETT IN NINTHROUND
EX-CHAMPION FEATHER-WEIGHT
SHOWS HIS VITALITY HAS VANISHED
DENVER BOXER IS OVERANXIOUS THROUGHOUT BATTLE]
Nelson Maintains
Decided Lead
Cleverly.
BOTH HIT HARD
Battling Kelson grained bis second
decisive victory over Young Corbett in
Woodward's Pavilion last night after
one ot the most desperate battles In
the history of the Queensberry ring.
The fight ended In the ninth round, but
the inevitable outcome was apparent
to the spectators after the fourth
round.
In all the history of athletics from
ancient times down to the present that
Intangible quality called vitality has
played an Important part, although it
can neither be seen nor located. Cor
bett presented a splendid muscular ap
pearance, but the vital spark was gone
and when heavy drains were made on
his nervous energy he fairly collapsed
and made a pitiable showing against
the Implacable Dane.
The latter seems more like whalebone
than flesh and blood, blows of the
hardest kind making no apparent im
pression on him. Corbett landed on his
head and Jaw and body, but there
never seemed a time when he was the
least bit distressed.
IX>ST HIS COOLNESS.
Corbett had told his friends he in
tended to fight cleverly, but he cast
discretion to the winds early in the
contest and commenced to swing wild
ly, thus playing into Nelson's hands.
Several times he received crushing
rights to the head when he rushed at
Nelson, thus accenting the force of the
blows. Corbett seldum made any at
tempt at guarding, being willing, ap
parently, at all times to take a blow if
there was a chance of landing one.
The blows which finally ended the
unequal contest were not so hard as
many which each man had landed dur
ing the fight. Corbett was in a bad
way early in the ninth round, after
ng a right and left to the head.
Nelson followed this with a hard left
- jaw and was pressing Corbett
about the ring. He suddenly caught
Corbet! a <juick jolty left on the jaw
and with almost lightning like rapidity
he shot ovt-r a right. Corbett fell on his
hack like a log. He was in the middle
f the ring and it seemed he was com
pletely knocked out.
He lay there motionless for five sec
onds and then slowly gathered his
scattered senses and made feeble ef
forts to stand up.
BADLY BEATEN".
At the count of nine, he barely was
on his feet and staggered over to the
ropes on the north side of the ring
.- -rui stood there helpless with his hands
ay bit side. Nelson walked up to him
slowly and 6truck him a hard right
he head.
Meantime Referee Welch, seeing the
helpless condition, was trying to pre
bran from punishing the de
feated man unnecessarily. The last
Mow Nelson struck sent Corbett to the
floor again and Welch led Nelson to
the middle of the ring and proclaimed
him the victor. In the meantime
Spider Kelly had tossed the sponge in
\>> the ring, signifying Corbett's defeat,
bat this was an unnecessary precau
tion, as the fight had been stopped.
After the fight Nelson showed no
marks whatever on his face or body,
while Corbett's face was badly puffed
up from the visitations of the Dane's
gloves.
There were several variations from
the recent fights of the two men, as in
this fight Nelson showed a tendency to
hold on in the earlier stages, while Cor
bett apparently tried to butt Nelson
with his head several times.
Nelson lowered his head after a while
and there were some sharp collisions,
but neither man was damaged. In the
eighth round. Referee Welch thought
he saw an inclination on the part of
Corbett to strike Nelson foul blows.
He warned the Denverite. and there
was no more trouble on that score.
In th? early part of the fight Corbett
kept Jabbing at Nelson and would not
let him get set, and It was some time
before Nelson could deliver an ef
fective blow.
BAD JUDGE OF DISTANCE.
For some reason Corbett proved a
bad Jadge of distance. Many cf his
ewings went wide of the mark. Cor
bett fought like a man whose life was
at stake while his vitality lasted, and
even when It was apparent he could
only win by some lucky punch he still
kept trying and trying, but to no avail.
He seemed always to have hopes of
landing a blow on some vital spot, but
there seemed to be no vulnerable place
on the Dane's body.
When proceedings opened, Corbett
was the first to get into action. He
feinted at Nelson, who moved about
slowly as if on a pivot. Corbett was
the first to land, sending a right to the
body. He followed this with two lefts
to the bead and a left to the body.
At this early stage of the proceedings
he was obviously anxious to land a de
cisive blow. He was easily outfeinting
Nelson and his friends felt sure he was
about to regain his lost laurels. The
crowd began to hiss Nelson for his
holding tactics. Nelson's most effective
blow in this round was a lefl to the
heed, which shook up Corbett. Corbett
was the first to get into action in the
second round, trying rights and lefts

BATTLING KELSON, WHO GAINED HIS SECOND DECISIVE VICTORY OVER
YOUNG CORBETT LAST NIGHT IN WOODWARD 1 S PAVILION AFTER NINE
DESPERATE ROUNDS OP FIGHTING.
DANE AFTER BRITT
XJLIEIjIj. I guess he knows
VV now that I can punch
some," were the first
words uttered by Battling Nel
son after his game little oppo
nent was laid out on the carpet.
"I waded in and won just as I
did before and just as I told my
friends I would do this time.
His wallops never hurt me.
After the fifth round I knew I
had him. Thos^e old come
backs did not bother me, for I
could see that he would blow
np. I took my time and when
I saw a chance I went in and
landed. Now lam ready to talk
to Britt. I have signed a con
tract t o meet him and posted
my SI SOO forfeit. He has not
covered it yet. I am still wait
ing. As soon as he shows the
color of Ids money I will feel
happy, lo r 1 am going to beat
him next time."
which did no damage. He tried rough
ing it with Nelson, but made no pro
gress in that direction. He kept jab-,
bing at Nelson repeatedly and the lat
ter could not get set. Corbett missed
a hard left arid walked into a right.
Nelson followed this up with a right
and left, and Corbett missed a right.
He caught Nelson a right on the Jaw,
but it made no impression on the Dane.
Nelson landed his first effective blow
early in the first round when he
caught Corbett with a straight to the
head when the latter was coming in.
Nelson followed up this with a left
and right to the head. He slipped to
his knees about the middle of the
round, but was up instantly. Corbett
fairly raised Nelson off his feet in this
round with a left to the head. Both
men were nghting desperately when
the bell rang.
HIS LAST STAXD.
The fourth round was all nghting
and this was Corbett's last great stand.
Here was where he exhausted his stock
of. vitality and he was never the same
after that. Early in the round he
walked into a hard right, but came
back quickly and there was a great
slugging match. Nelson sent in a ter
rible right to the body and followed
this with a right to the head. Corbett
responded with a right to the body and
got a left in return. Just as the bell
sounded, Corbett sent a hard left to the
Jaw.
Corbett sent a Jolty left to the head
at the opening of the fifth round and
got a left to the head and ri«"ht to the
body in return. He again walked in
to one of Nelson's right handers and
began to bleed badly at the mouth.
Nelson rushed Corbett to the ropes
and landed several hard rights to the
jaw, following them 1 with rights' and
lefts to the jaw that sent Corbett to
his corner in distress.
Nelson was improving steadily as
; the fight progressed, while it was ap
, parent Corbett was on the down
i grade. Nelson kept after him relent
lessly in the sixth round, and Corbett
backed away to gain a little breathing
i spell. Corbett was wrestled to the
I floor early in the round, but he was
up quickly. Corbett was helpless on
the ropes near the end of the round
j and Nelson was able to hit him when
j ever he wanted to. It seemed Nel-
J son coutd have finished him any time
he wanted, but let -him stay.
VIVACITY AIAj GO°SE.
When the seventh round opened it
was apparent Corbett had lo^t all the
vivacity which marked his appearance
THE SAN FRANCISCO CALL, WEDNESDAY, MARCH 1, 19Q5.
NO EXCUSE TO MAKE.
|k I ELSON beat me fairly
IN and squarely," said
Yonng Corbett after the
mill. "I have no excuses to of
fer and I do not want to detract
from the glory coming to him.
I was in as good shape as I
ever was in my life before. Nel
son simply wore me down. I
thought I had a chance In that
eighth round when I waded in
and brought rights and lefts
over as fast as I could steer
them. I had him worried and
I really believed 1 was going to
put him out. But I could not
last, I was worn down and all
my strength left me. I was
game to the last and never
wanted to quit. No, 1 will not
quit the game. I will keep on
training and show the public
that I am capable of coming
back and beating a lot of them."
in the earlier rounds. Early in the
seventh Nelson sent in some jolty
rights and lefts which beat down
Corbett's already weakened guard and
left him apparently defenseless. Cor
bett landed a hard left swing on Nel
son's jaw in the middle of the round,
but it was too high to be effective.
Nelson kept on scoring with right
and left.
In the eighth round Nelson's blows
could harflly be counted. They
came with a lightning-like rapidity,
and, while none of them were hard,
the aggregate amount of punishment
was terrific. It was in this round that
the referee warned Corbett not to hit
low and not to introduce any butting
tactics into the game.
Nelson went after Corbett In a
systematic manner in the ninth and
last round. Corbett made some wild
swings in an attempt to stem the tide
of defeat, but the power was not there.
Although the spectators were expect
ing the end at any moment, when It
finally came it took them somewhat by
surprise, as many harder blows had
been struck during the fight than the
decisive ones.
Corbett was the first to enter the
ring and was to all outward appear
ances in the best possible condition.
The muscles of his chest and stomach
-howed prominently, while his trim
legs bore testimony to the many miles
that he had trudged over the Marin
County roads during the last two
months. He was warmly greeted by
the spectators when he appeared, ac
companied by Frank McDonald, Joe
Gans, Spider Kelly and Tim McGrath.
It was ten minutes later before Nelson
appeajred accompanied by Billy Nolan,
Fred Landers, Martin Murphy and
Rawhide Kelly. As usual Nelson was
introduced as "the hardest nut In the
profession to crack." Billy Jordan
then presented Young Corbett as "one
of the best boys in the world."
Brjtt was next presented and he
said he was always willing to fight
any man at his weight. He shook
hands with the two boxors and with
Joe Gans. There were loud calls for
Gans, who wa= given the most cor
dial greeting of the night when Billy
Jordan introduced him as "the light
weight champion of the world."
There were loud calls for a speech,
and the Baltimore wonder said: "I'll
keep quiet for a while and let these
boys do the nghting."
Eddie Hanlon sent a telegram from
the East challenging the .winner. Be
fore the fight Nelson had a worried
look and seemed drawn to the last
ounce. .The flesh hardly seemed tc

Description of Fight by Rounds
Shows How Nelson Won.
Following is a description of the
fight by rounds, showing how Nelson

little Denverite:
Round 1.
Corbett danced about and looked confident,
while Nelson wore a more serious air. Corbett

ARABO, PILOTED BY TREUBEL,
BEATS LETOLA A NECK.
SCHOOLMATE A HEAD BEFORE SAN NICHOLAS
IN THE DISTANCE EVENT AT OAKLAND
FRED E. MULHOLLAND
If the earls of frenzied finance and
the relentless ticker have made a stall
walker of Thomas Lawson, the Boston
trust buster, Walter Jennings has his
troubles, too. His mare Letola lost the
six and a half furlong handicap at
Oakland yesterday to Arabo, by a
neck, with nine out of every ten race
goers willing to go before a notary
and make oath that she was best.
It's only about four or five weeks
back that Walter disposed of Arabo
to "Kansas" Price. Letola was the
choice of the talent, and nearly every
body separated themselves from any
loose change they had at odds of
seven to five. There was a time dur
ing the race when the coin looked
well set. Then "Big Bill" Knapp in
his anxiety to grab the wire .first,
made a sweeping turn into the stretch
with the favorite, while at the same
time Treubel on Arabo stole through
on the rail. Treubel suved two
lengths easily enough and down at
the finishing line slapped it on
Knapp by a neck. Toledo ran third,
Venator pulled up lame and Andrew
B. Cook wilted away.
Despite the somewhat depressing
blow, the big crowd witnessed some
splendid sport. A long shot enlivened
proceedings, and three favorites pick
ed up purses.
Finishing necks apart The Volt, rid
den by Bonner and a 6 to 5 favorite,
earned the decision over Sterling
Towers and Yellowstone for the in
troductory sprint. Sterling Towers
made all the running and should have
won, but at the last Bonner out
finished Wright. With any sort of
racing luck, Dr. Sherman would have
been among the first three.
Hugh McGowan closed favorite over
Flaunt for the mile and a sixteenth
selling affair, and won all the way.
The second choice received excellent
handling from Birkenruth, but was
not good enough to do the trick. Tir
ing badly the last furlong, he was beat
en for the place by Maxetta, a 50 to 1
shot with E. Walsh in the saddle.
Young Clark landed Pickaway first
for the five and a half furlong scram
ble at odds of 10 to 1. The fast geld
ing received some support and leading
throughout, disposed of Fort Wayne
by a couple of lengths in 1:07%- Silent
Water weakened the last sixteenth,
running a good third. Jakie Jones on
the favorite succeeded in getting lost i
in the discard.
With Major Manslr in disgrace and
on the suspended list, but four started
in the mile and a quarter purse event.
It proved a good betting race, as
Schoolmate and San Nicholas closed
equal favorites, and Stilicho did not
lack for friends. Jones on San Nicho
las cut out the pace and hung on in
a surprising manner, as the route
looked far for the black horse. Trr.u
bel on Schoolmate crowded on all sail
the last three-sixteenths of the trip
and riding an exceedingly vigorous fin
ish, won by a head in 2:o6Vfc. Stilicho
was a keen contender at the close, be
ing beaten less than a length. Col.
Anderson seemed shy on speed.
Just to be fashionable, Alarie with
the leg up on A. Mnskoday, favorite for
the final seven-furlong purse run, ar
rived late at the,, wire. Salable, the
mount of Mcßride and 18 to 5 in the
ring, carried a heavy stable commis
sion, and led from start to finish. True
Wing, the contender all the way, ran
second. Alarie and the favorite were
third.
TRACK NOTES.
Treubel reached the wire first on
Schoolmate and Arabo, both horses
being from the stable of "Kansas"
Price.
There was considerable discussion
over the finish in the first race, many
thinking Sterling Towers reached the
wire first. As a matter of fact the
judges say The Volt won by a neck.
Frank Skinner, the form chart man,
called the mare first by the same dis
tance. •
It is refreshing to view a ride now
and then such as Jakie Jones deliv
ered himself of on Sir Preston. Then
when one sees a pretty piece of riding
it Is all the more appreciable.
George Wentworth bet "Kansas"
Price and Tobe Ramsey $80 that Sal
able would be in front of The Mist

State this is and how rapidly they
grow!
