Majestic Theatre, Fort Wayne, Indiana, USAWTKO610
"Young Holzhauer heard taps sounded on his career as a boxer. Drawn and pinched, he wearily fought for three rounds like a sick man, finally failing to answer the bell for the seventh. Brown, of Toledo, couldn't stop the local even when he was staggering almost helplessly, for Holzhauer's instinctive ability to cover warded off anything resembling a sleep producer. He looked, when he stepped into the ring, as though he had left all his fight in his dressingroom. He was a good one while he was with them, but illness has sapped his last good fight out of him."
