Madison Square Garden, New York, New York, USALTKO11
referee: Charlie White
"The bout had gone eleven rounds very much in Wolcott's favor, as he had punished West very badly about the body and head and had him in a very weakened condition. When the bell rang for the twelfth round, to the surprise of everybody, Wolcott refused to go on, claiming he had injured his left arm. Referee Charlie White, suspecting crookedness, insisted upon Wolcott continuing, but the negro refused to do so, which left White no alternative other than to declare West the winner. There was quite a large sum of money wagered, with West as favorite and the referee is very outspoken in reference to Wolcott's peculiar actions. Manager Kennedy, on behalf of the club, announced that Wolcott's share of the money would not be given to him, but would be donated to some charitable institution. " (Durango Democrat)

Broadway A.C., New York, New York, USAWTKO725
time: 0:38 | referee: Johnny White
"The betting made Choynski a prohibitive favorite, odds of 100 to 30 being freely laid on his chances, but after the first round, in which Choynski went to the floor five times, the odds shifted, and at the beginning of the second round Walcott was a 2-1 favorite. The fight was stopped by Referee Johnny White, who declared Walcott the winner. White said afterward that he felt that another blow would have put Choynski out." (Cripple Creek Morning Times)

Dobbs was tall, had a long reach, and a fair amount of science. Walcott was stocky and "well built." The top of Walcott's head was barely as high as Dobbs' shoulders. New York Times

In the fourth round Walcott landed a terrific swing on his opponent's stomach, sending him to his knees. As Watts reached the floor, Walcott hit him again on the jaw. The crowd cried "foul," but the referee continued his count of ten. The timekeeper recognized the foul and refused to ring the gong. The referee realizing he had made a mistake ordered the boxers to carry on, Watts' corner wanted to claim the foul. Police Inspector Allaire at ringside, fearing trouble, ordered the bout stopped and the referee declared it a draw. Brooklyn Daily Eagle
