"Paddy Dunn and Dick Moore met in a house near the southern boundary of Minneapolis last night to settle their fight, which took place at the Olympic a few evenings ago. At that time, Dunn was knocked out and claimed that Moore used "loaded gloves". Both men came up for the first round confident and sparred a few moments for an opening. Then Moore led with his left, and catching Dunn in the jugular, kncoked him clear out of time." St. Paul Daily Globe 12-8-1888.
