DOUBLE WIN OVER TIGERS DUE TO
CANTON, O., Sept. 3 What was to
have been a 15-round boxing bout be
tween Carl Morris, of Oklahoma, and
Fred Fulton, of Minnesota, was ter

so often that Referee Matt Hinkel was
forced to disqualify the Oklahoman.
The contest was to have decided which
of the two was the better qualified to
meet Jess Willard In a heavyweight
Outclassed and apparently destined
to become the recipient of a terrific
mauling, Morris violated every rule of
the boxing game and of good sportsmanship.
Morris started like a game fighter
