1924-11-17Tony Fuente30-4-3
Culver City Arena, Culver City, California, USALKO14
referee: Earl Mohan
Fulton "took a dive" 35 seconds after the opening bell, it was later determined. The crowd rioted and threw "storms of cushions into the ring." (AP) It was later alleged Fulton had taken an extra $7,500 to "lie down." His manager admitted to investigating boxing officials that Fulton had warned his friends to refrain from betting on him. Fulton was arrested for violating state law prohibiting prize-fighting; meanwhile authorities searched for Fuente, who dumped manager Winsor. Fulton later proclaimed he was done with boxing, because of this whole mess.

"Fulton took a big step backwards on his road to secure another battle with Jack Dempsey Friday night, when he suffered a terrific lacing at the hands of Bartley Madden and was considered lucky by the fans to have the bout called a draw. Madden had Fulton groggy in the last round of their 12 round bout, and the referee's decision was received with disfavor." (Appleton Post Crescent)

He tried to push himself up, but collapsed and had to be dragged back to his corner.

League Park, Canton, Ohio, USAWDQ615
referee: Matt Hinkel
The bout was ended after Morris had fouled Fulton so often that Referee Hinkel was obliged to disqualify the Oklahoman. The contest was to have decided which of the two was the better qualified to meet Jess Willard in a heavyweight title match. Newspapers reported that Morris "violated every rule of boxing and of good sportsmanship." Once in the fifth and again in the sixth, Fulton wanted to stop fighting because of Morris' constant butting and the ref's seeming indifference to it. At one point, Fulton started to leave the ring but was stopped by Harry Wills who was working his corner.
