Gulart substituted for Andy Schmader. "Jeannette expressed a willingness to fight Gulard (sic) with one hand.

Jeannette used only his left hand...Jeannette jabbed and hooked with his left, but could not even parry with his injured right. At the close of the tenth round Gulard earned a shade by his aggressiveness. NY Sun
