1892-12-29Solly Smith12-0-3
California A.C., San Francisco, California, USALKO14
referee: Billy Jordan
Fight to a finish. The bout was of the hurricane order, with a lot of foul work on Smith's part, who threw Heest and ran his knees into his neck and face, or dropped on top of Van Heest, the referee never giving a single warning about that, as if it were a LPR fight. Van Heest knocked Smith down in the 6th, breaking his nose with the punch. In the 14th round Van Heest was thrown on his back, striking his head heavily on the floor, and was counted out. (SF Morning Call)
1892-05-28George Siddons10-4-7
Metropolitan Club, New Orleans, Louisiana, USADPTS46
referee: Professor John Duffy
"The fight, owing to a peculiar system of management which fed the crowd on a variety show instead of bringing about the main event, did not begin until a few minutes to 10. It lasted until 1 o'clock, and as both men were fresh, both unhurt and both inactive to a large extent, the referee was requested to call it a draw, in order not to violate the Sunday law--that was the excuse announced." (New Orleans Daily Picayune)
