O'Sullivan Park, Lawrence, Massachusetts, USALDQ612
The odds shifted just before this fight, leading to suspicion that it was fixed. Indeed, the Boston Globe reported that it looked as though Fitzsimmons was "pulling his punches." It was an outdoor promotion put on by "a well known Lawrence sporting man," and "The whole thing was evidently set up as a betting coup." The fight ended with a foul and a dramatic display of agony by Kloby.
