BOS'S FAMOUS SOLAR fUXUSBLOW
Attain Gave Hint the Victory In the
Koped Arcua-The Ohio Figrhter
! Easily Defeated.
NEW YOItlv. Aug. Jp. Eob Fitzsini
lnous, the ex-champiou pugilist of the
world., met Gus ltuhlin, the Akron
giaut, t; the Twentieth Century Club,
Madison J Square Garden, and won by
kiuM-king the Ohioan down and out in
rho sixth round, IU-fortj the tight, and
for some weeks past, I here have been
many reports to the effect that I'itz
simMious was too old to coin success
fully with his Vounger oinioneut. It
was'argned that Fkzsiiunions well-
known knowledge of the game and his
capability of hard hitting would not be
able to counterbalance the youtli ami
strength, as well as the recently ac
quitHHt tactics of the Ohio man. To
night, however, all .this has been
changxL Fitzsimmons dkl the trick
cleanly nd cleverly. It was a fierce
and blomly battle while It lasted, and
at times it looked as Ff ltuhlin would
get thej better of the older man, but
Filzsiintnons, at the proper time, cut
roos with Ids fearful Iksly blows
which finally snuffed out the Ohio box
The bet ting all along had favored
FitzsLnuuous. many wagers at the rate
of 100 to JS( on "Iinky Itob" b:ing
made. Tonight, however, at the ring
side, there was a flush of Huhlin
money, which forced th odds lo take
odds in Itu hi in's favor at the rate of
100 to SO. This state of affairs did not
last loufr. however, and by the time the
men had put up. their hands for the
ojiening round, they were equal favor
ites at even money.
Fitzsimmons liiuiself com-eded alsmt
thirty-tAvo pounds to Huhlin. and this
in itself was a serious handicap. Hut
as tlie result showed, Fitzsimmons was
euual to the task he Jiad set liiuiself
against, and won out with that terrible
solar plexus blow." which, whenever it
Isn1ed. shook 1uh from head to foot.
From the word "go" the men started
lt witb hurricane-like force. Both
were wild at. "times, but Fitzsimmons
was always the quickest to steady him
self. Ruhlin clinclitHl a good deal and
for three or four ronnds was the g
grei?Kor Several blows staggered Fitz
simmons. but none of them landed on
the mark, as Fitzsimmons was too
shifty. Just once Fitzsimmons touch
ed the floor when le slipixrd down
from a clinch at tm send of, a round.
In the sixth round linhlin was slow
sent stniight lefts Fitzsimmons
jumped at his man. Fitzsrmmons got
around ltuhlin, and while the latter
sent straight lefts for Fitzsimmons'
side-stepped safely and landed lefts
and rights to the head and neck, and
with the fearful left on tlie solar
plexus Fitzsimmons sent ltuhlin in a
heap to the floor. .
This wis the Iieginning of the end
that soon followed. Uuiilin. after tak
ing nine seconds of the count, arose o
nis ieeT. groggj rroni me enoets or toe
blow, j Fitzsiminous knew he had Ii.'s
man. and was ready for him. As soon
as lluldiu got up, Fitsinimons turImhI,
sending two lefts to the face, aud then
shot his riKht with fearful force to the
jKiint of Ituhltn's jaw. ttus pitcbe1
forward, as if struck with an axe, and
fell oa Ids face to the floor, where lie
was counted out, al had to le carried
