RATTLING BOUT ON THE COAST Former Champion Had the Best of the Go Until the Fatal Sixteenth Round, When He Goes Twice to the Floor and Retaliates by Handing His Plucky Adversary Two Blows Below the Belt San Francisco, Nov. 29. Through dense cloud of fog at Daly City a wildly excited throng of fight fans carried from tbe roped arena their first pugilistic lightweight champion--Willie Ritchie was hoisted on tho shoulders of his supporters, and his victory was so unexpected that 7,000 rpectators made the hills echo with their exultations. With the sixteenth round having only two seconds to go, Champion Wolgast fouled Ritchie and the ref eree was quick to raise tho local lad'fl glove in token of victory. The dts qnallfcatlon came after Ritchie bad floored Wolgast twice. Whether the foul was Intentional or not was tho theme of discussion among thousands as they left the arena. There was no question, however, about the foul. The fact Is WolgaBt delivered two low left hand punches to Ritchie's groin, and the action of the referee was the only 'ourse to pursue'. Tom Jones, Wol--gast's manager, was angered at the decision and declared it was the rank ct robbery. Hilly Nolan. Ritchie's manager,-, claimed that the champion deliberate ly fouled when he was stung by Ritchie and took this course to save himself from a knockout Referee Griffin made the following statement: "I was right on top of the men and saw Wolgast strike out with Ms left and It went low. Ritchie was i hurt, and in a flash Wolgast swung with his left and it also went below tbe belt As Ritchie sank to the floor In pain, there was nothing else for me tr do but award the bout to Rltchle.- Wolgast All to the Good. Wolgast had the best of the fight -up to the critical sixteenth round. In the third round he nearly knocked ' Ritchie, the new champion, through the rtpes with a right to the jaw. In the eighth Wolgast, after putting the right and left to the Jaw, nearly closed Ritchie's right eye wltb a stiff punch. In the next two rounds V! gast had things all his own way. In the ninth Ritchie's eye was closed and he received heavy body punish ment, Ritchie fought gamely, but he could do little. In the tenth Ritchie rallied and' hammered Wolgast around the hend. The round ended with honors In h!s favor Ritchie came up in the elov--enth eager for the battle and again? it was his round, as he seemed to reach the champion easily. The twelfth was even, Ritchie meeting the champion plucklly and swapping strong punches. In the thirteenth Wolgast began with wild blows, but steadied. Ritchie, however, held his ground. The fourteenth was a shade in favor of Wolgast, and ho nearly olosei Ritchie's good eye. Ritchie came up strong In tbe fif teenth and astonished the crowd by outboxlng the champion. In the six teenth Ritchie rushed Wotgast and landed a fierce right cross to the Jaw, which sent Wolgast to the rones. Again Ritchie whipped his right acros and Wolgast went to the floor. He got up groggy and, after another right to the Jaw, he delivered the two fouls that cost him the fight KIII.ID Lima, O., Nov. 29.
