To back up your correct assertion about Fitz....

.I thought you might like to see his explanation:

"I took every precaution to avoid a foul. I fought very carefully and very fair., and I waited until I could get a good opportunity to deliver a knockout blow so that everyone could see that it was done fair and honestly.
Knowing that I had a crooked referee I had to take precautions. I fought Sharkey at long distance and didn't get in too close to him, because if I got mixing up things with him at short range in body blows the audience would not be able to see the blows and some one might claim a foul. It wouldn't have been possible for me to make a mistake and hit a foul blow. Such a thing never happened in all my life. A man struck in that way would go down on his knees and roll around and holler. I have done it myself when I was hit, as he claims he was, with a cricket ball. I didn't fall backwards as Sharkey did."

          For decades before getting into the Old West field I had become a walking encyclopedia on pro boxing. My indoctrination began as a boy (with my father) in 1954. By 1973 I was a very decent fight... more
