Not since the old days of bare-knuckle fights has such a battle been fought in or around New York. Both were big men, over the middleweight limit, with O'Brien nearing the heavyweight class. He was so heavy he refused to weigh in and Handler waived the question of weight. O'Brien's manager threw in the sponge to save his fighter from further punishment. New York Times
