At stake was a purse of $5,000, with $750 going to the loser. The referee was Peter Jackson and the odds were nearly even when the bout started. The crowd was amazed by Mitchell’s ability to take punishment. Mitchell knocked out Gallagher “completely out” with a big right to the chin and a punch behind the ear. The Los Angeles Times
