Had the last attribute been among the virtues of Lafiin he would have be come champion of America the night of; N"o. 10, ISM. j In the nrst round of their bout In j Madison Square (ianlf-n Sullivan flu t e : himself around to such an extent and used tip his energy so much by heatirmj the air with his hands that lie was almost : out from exhaustion when the second round began. He rushed his opponent.' however, and soon was on the ropes, li-.s arms hanging limply at his sides, whi!" Fafllin stood and pounded at the Sulli van jaws. Sullivan was clever enough to duck, every time one of the punch. s started end they landed, for the most Ef! -XTTT. This whs period of real depression for the champion. He v. a1 fighting the black bottle bard and often, ai.d a was gl i:ig him a finer licking than he ever had handed out to one of h:s opponents Jt hd mado him totally unfit to meet I'har ley Mitchell, and it was pursuing hbn w ith still more deadly vigor. Sullivan had the et tills time t. get with "Prof." John kul!, where they did no part, on his ri.i mane. I.Bflin was terribly rattled, but his peconds were worse. They were para lyze I with anticipation and shouted madly at Fanin lo work on Sullivan's middle. He could not hear tho clamor of voices, and soon his opportunity had passed. If he had been able to hear and had calmd down enough to rcalite his own mistake, ho would have become, that night, the' champion of America, with the assistance of John Karleycorn. As it was .Sullivan was given the de cision after the scheduled four rounds of milling, for he had landed the greater number of effective blows. Richard Fox was still hunting for somo one who would be able to remove the crown of champio'nship from the brow of the husky new chawpion. and he hit. this time on A!f. Greenfield, an other Englishman. Advance notices bailed hirn as tho peer of Charley Mitchell and Jem Mace. He wns con siderably smaller than Sullivan, but was a very shifty boxer. His blows, how ever, as is the case vvilh most fa;t box ers. wer light and ineffectual. Sulli van agreed to meet him, and 'he date for the bout was set as Nov. IS. ISM. only a short time after Sullivan's dis appointing meeting with I.nflin. Th" bout was scheduled for four rounds and was to be In Madison Square, Garden. It really was a bad match for Sullivan, for he was out. of condition. He iefud. however, to take -counsel, and did his bst to get in some kind of condition.
