No Match for the Black Slugger
MARYVILLE, Cal., July 25, Four rounds were fought here last night by Peter Jackson, the Australian, and Tom Johnson, a local heavyweight, who had gained some reputation as a hard hitter. Johnson proved no match for the Australian, but he stood up manfully and received heavy punishment without flinching. He managed to make Peter work as hard during the four rounds as in any fight he ever had. Johnson has a peculiar stiff left cross swing, and he got in a number of blows on Peters ribs which evidently told on the Australian. Jackson will sail for Australia on Saturday.
