Seaside A.C., Brooklyn, New York, USALTKO725
"The one time invincible George Dixon succumbed to Tommy Sullivan, of Brooklyn, at Coney Island tonight. The end came as the men shaped up for the seventh round, when Tom O'Rourke admitted defeat for his man, and claiming his left arm was disabled, refused to permit him to continue. Dixon was getting all the worst of it. Sullivan was willing to mix it up on the slightest provocation and the consensus of opinion was that Dixon was well beaten." (Durango Democrat)
