Goddard was to knock Smith out in 10 rounds or lose the purse. Smith was down three times in the 1st round, four times in the 2nd, five times in the 3rd, ten times in the 4th. In the 5th round Captain Short stopped the contest, thinking that Smith had had enough, but the latter explained that he was only playing possum and was allowed to continue. He was down six more times in the 6th, and eight times in the 7th, when Captain Short finally decided that it was too one-sided and stopped the bout. The referee declared it a draw. (SF Morning Call)
