1912-11-04 (133lbs) Ad Wolgast nd-drew 10 Joe Mandot, The National Baseball Park, New Orleans, Louisiana, USA. Referee: Ed Smith. According to the New Orleans Daily Picayune both men were inside 133lbs. Bidding to win the title, Mandot (130) certainly matched the champion in aggression. Starting at a fast pace, Wolgast was Mandot’s superior when it came to infighting, with the latter, who dropped his man in the ninth, showing better generalship. While some papers had Mandot taking three of the last four rounds the general consensus was that it should be seen as a draw.
