Morgan "isn't what he used to be when the bloom of youth drove him on to greater conquests. But so long as Tod Morgan carries his padded mittens into a boxing ring he will carry with him the heart of a lion. Last night Santiago Zorilla cut his left in the first round and opened the cut every round thereafter. For nine rounds Tod took a beating; then he stepped out; he pounded Zorilla from pillar to post.... Round after round the bad eye blinded Tod as he chased the colored shadow of the San Blas Indian in front of him." Seattle Daily Times
