1912-07-20Jack White17-6-10
Arena, Vernon, California, USALDQ920
referee: Charles Eyton
"After forcing whatever fighting there was for nine rounds of a scheduled 20-round bout today, Owen Moran, of England, was disqualified for using his elbow in clinches and the decision awarded by Referee Charles Eyton to Jack White, of Chicago. The abrupt ending of the fight was received with mingled cheers and groans. Moran did nearly all of the leading. Fully half of the time was spent in feinting and racing, Moran being the pursuer. White had the better of only one round, the seventh, when he landed three left swings to Moran's head. Moran was first warned in the fifth round, when a short left hook opened White's lip. The Chicagoan protested that Moran had used his elbow in striking the blow. Twice in subsequent rounds, Moran was warned and each time he protested that he was not using his elbow. Among the ringside spectators there was almost as much difference of opinion as at the Wolgast-Rivers decision, many asserting that it was because of White's method of defense in clinches that Moran seemed to be fighting unfairly. Moran dispayed much more cleverness than White, whose showing was disappointing." (Washington Post)
