Xelson Pledged to Fight

COLMA ARENA. San Francisco, Sept.
. Battling Kelson clinched his claim
to the lightweight pugilistic champion
hip by defeating Joe Gans for the sec
end time at Colma Arena this after
noon. The flsrht ended In the twenty
first round, when Cans, beaten down
by a succession of blows from his
sturdy conqueror, failed to get upon his
feet within the count of ten. The vet
eral colored fighter was severely pun
ished but tee champion, too, has the
marks of battle. -
From the first dang of the gong to
the last moment. Nelson forced the
fighting, never giving ground, and
gradually battered down his older and
less vigorous opponent. Ge.ns sue
cumtoed In the twenty-first round after
being most unmercifully trounced by
the lad from Hegewlsch. Nelson In
this round rained In right and left
(mashes to the Jaw and body of Gans
and soon beat him Into a helpless state.
Last Battle, Says Gans.
Gans sank to the floor and the
referee began to count. Mechanically
the defeated man watched Keferee
Eddie Smith wave his hands, apparent
ly too far gone to hear him count. The
count of ten was tolled off and It was
then that Gans. ashen pale; his face
terribly cut and with his eyes glassy,
sought to rise He realised, however,
that it was too late, and feebly mut
tered: "I have positively fought my last
The fight was most spectacular and
at no time did it appear as If Gans had
a chance to win. Time and again 'tie
would shoot wicked punches to the
Battler's face and body, but the latter
never for an Instant wavered. From
the tap of the Initial gong Nelson was
on top of his man. lashing out with
right and left to the stomach and head
and Jaw. giving the colored man no
opportunity for re&t.
When Gans was seen In his dressing
room his face presented a terrible 'pic
ture. His right eye was closed, the
left partialis so; his lips and nose were
badly lacerated and his face puffed out
like an Inflated . balloon. He mumbled
out the following statement:
One Fight Too Many.
"I made one flght too many. Nelson
1s a tough boy and beat me fairly. I
will never" flght again. I will return to
Baltimore Immediately and attend to my
hotel business there. This Is no Fattl
farewell, but In dead earnest."
Willus Keffe, one of Gan's principal sec
onds, said after the fight:
"Gans wasL in after the ninth round.
In the eleventh. I begged him to allow me
to toss the sponge into the ring. This he
would not allow me to do, saying he pre
ferred to be knocked out and would flght
as long as he had the strength to stand.
For 11 rounds Gans fought on his courage
alone, as he could not land a damaging
Xelson to Fight Xo More Negroes.
"Gans was tougher than before. He was
in good shape and he fought me a dif
ferent kind of a flght, but I proved con
clusively that I em his master in any
kind of a flght. From now on, I will
never fight a colored man again. I shook
hands with Billy Papke today and we
both made this compact. 1 hurt my right
hand in the second round, but kept on
using It regardless of the pain.
Nelson's Plan of Battle.
From the outset It. was apparent) to
everybody that Nelson had mapped out
his plan to beat Gans, namely, to keep
after him at all times, force him to close
quarters and beat him down with body
punches. The Battler, from the very
tart, tore into Gans and. getting him at
close Quarters, played tor nis stomacn.
Nelson gave Gans no rest. Time and
strain the colored man was forced to stall
nd bring all his cleverness In the way
of smothering end blocking into piay.
Frequently he sent hard right and left
Jolts to the Dane's jaw and body, but they
had not the slightest errect.
Nelson appeared to be as strong at the
finish as in the beginning or the tight.
One of his teeth was knocked out In the
fourteenth round and blood flowed freely
as a result. . The sight of the blood spout
ing from Nelson's mouth caused short
enders to mount their seats and shout
encouragingly to the fast-dying colored
lad. He responded gamely and In the
following round made wnat was tne mosi
furious round of the flght.
The men weighed in. stripped, at 133
pounds. Betting was even that Gans
would not last 20 rounds and was 10 to

but nenwr gave way as Inch of ground.
"If you can't hit any harder you might as
well quit." yelled Willis Brltt. M the men
came up for the second round. Nelson forced
Oens around the ring, putting two lefts to
the colored man's face. Gans countered with
a hard right to the body and a moment later

He forced Gam to the ropes and at close
quarters drove Gans to the renter of the ring,

round ended In Nelaon's favor.
They fought shoulder to shoulder. Nelson

with short-arm rights and lefts to the Jaw,
forcing the Battler into still closer quarters.
Velson forced Gans against the ropes and

and Gins chopped Nelson's face with a ter
rific right swing, and a moment lar swung
his right hard over the kidneys. The round
was comparatively oven. (
They went at It. Gans planting a hard
right to the body. The Dane, however, was
not to be stopped and It took all or Gans1
cleverness to avoid his onslaughts. Gans sent
Nelson's head back three times In quick suc
cession with right and left uppercuta. but
the Dane merely shook his head and waded in
for more. Gana uppercut twice fiercely with
his right to the Jaw and a moment later
sent another duo of rights to the same place,
all of which shook Nelson up considerably.
Just before the gong rang Gans staggered Nel
son with a wicked right to the Jaw. Nelson,
however, trotted cheerfully to his corner. Gans
had the advantage la this round.
Nelson continued to peg away for the
stomach. He finally changed his tactics
and like s flash hooked a left and right
to the jaw, forcing Oans to clinch. They
closed In again and Gans. after putting
two lights to the body, received right and
left short-arm swings to the face. Gans
csught Nelson on the lace with right and
left swings, but Nelson retaliated with sim
ilar blows as the gong ended the round,
The round was fairly even.
Nelson rushed Gans around the ring con
stantly, but Gans met him with a terrific
right hook to the stomach and a left to
the Jaw. Nelson put in two or three short
arm blows to the body and followed It
with a left uppercut to the Jaw. In re
turn, however. Gans staggered him with
two solid right jolts to the jaw and a left
to the same place. The gong ended the
round, which belonged to oans by a gooa
margin, though Nelson showed no effects
of the punishment banded out to .him.
Nelson closed In at once and shot two
lefts to the mouth, which started the blood
flowing. Gans contented himself with
blocking and smothering and permitted Nel
son to do all the work. Gans then sent
In two vicious tight uppereuts to the Jaw
and they worked to close quarters, contest
ing every Inch of the way. Gans was kept
busy blocking and the bell terminated a
round slightly In favor of Nelson.
The Dsns rushed In fast and Gans backed
clear around the ring. . Gans slugged away
at Nelson, landing two right uppercuta to
ths face. Again there was close range
fighting, during which Nelson brought his
left har.d to the negro's Jaw. Nelson's
right leads were rather low. which caused
the crowd to yell Its disfavor. Nelson got
In two rights and a left to the stomach
as the men fought closely together. The
bell ended the round In Nelson's favor.
Nelson came up dancing, but was met with
a straight right to the Jaw. After some
clinching. Nelsnn uncorked a sard light swing
to the Jaw, quickly closed In and beat a tat
too on the stomach with short-arm tights and
lefts. The men constantly fought head to
head and shoulder to shoulder. Gana sent
in two right uppereuts. In return for which
Nelson swung his elbow, catching Gans on
the point of the Jaw. The crowd vigorously
hooted Nelson. Nelson was cautioned by the
referee at the conclusion of the round, which
was about even.
Nelsoa came up' dancing like a 2-year-old.
He rushed In close and had Gaas constantly
on the defensive. Gans. however, rallied and
gave the Dane as good as he received, land
ing several right uppereuts to the head and
Jaw. Nelson went after his man with fury
and landed several right and left smashes on
the Jaw. Gana looked a hit groggy as he
sought his comer. The round was all In favor
of Nelson. Gans looked worried as tato sec
onds worked over him.
Kelson, as usual, went right after Gans. and
the stored man held on. Nelson swung his
left to the Jaw and Gans was kept very bue-y
blocking the Dane's relentless bombardment
for the stomach. Neleon rushed Gass to the
ropes and nearly sent him through with right
and left swings to the face. Gans hung on
la desperation and at this stage looked like
a beaten man. As the round ended, Gane
caught Nelson on the face with a hard right
uppercut. steadying him for an instant. It
