New Polo A.C., New York, New York, USAWKO1
Less than two minutes of actual fighting and a dozen blows were all that were required to end this bout. During the time consumed to put over the deciding blow, "a right to the jaw," Coffey was floored four times, the final fall relieving him of his senses, and it was quite some time before he recovered in his corner.New York Times. Kearns reportedly had been showing in NYC rings for about 6 months.
