With both men inside 158lbs, the San Francisco Chronicle said: “Just one punch snuffed out Kelly’s title aspirations for good”. Despite having done well in the opening two sessions, Kelly was counted out in the third following a terrific left hook to the jaw which dropped him in a heap. In his next fight, on 18 August, Ketchel knocked out Joe Thomas inside two rounds at the Mission Street Arena, Colma, San Francisco.
