Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - February 9, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta SA-rORDAY, FEBRUATIY 0, 1918  THE tK'ftVRlUDGK r)AILY IlKr\ALD ^ Additional Sport 1 JEFFRIES OF SHMEY FIGHl A Little Inside History''of the Early Days of the (iame in America My tliat tight with Tom Sharkoy look placo tho night of May �, 1898, 111 tho ohl Mechanics' pavilion, Drove and  Lnrkin stroets.. Sun I'Yanclsco, �intl was won by Ann after 20 ronnds of mllilng. For u time there was little prospect oC U3 gottlns together In the ring. Tom 1 had an uxceptionally high opinion of himself us a fighter and when asked me told the promoters that he would do BO for ?15,000, win, lose or draw, i'^lnally Tom came down a -peg and told Messrs. CI room and Glbbs of the National club,'which promoted the fight, that,he.was ready to take ?12,-�0d. A set sum was out of the question so fur as the promoters were concern-'nd, so Tom finally gave In. and said he would do business on a percentage basis. On the night of April 11, 1898, Sharkey; who was his own manager whon it came to buslpess matters; BillyTlolaney, my representative, and .Messrs..Groom and Glbbs got together and, after a' lot of wrangling on the j)art of Sharkey; tho offer of the National club was accepted. Tom's shrowdncsa got us (iH per cent of the gate receipts Instead of 60, as wo first figured. Sharkoy said he wouldn't do^ bnalneas with tho Oplyniplc club, as It had treated him unfairly in previous fights, but at that Billy Kennedy had offered him Gfi per cent of the gross teate receipts and n bonus If ho would fight for the Olympics. Tills made Glbbs mad, tor he stated tluit lio had an agreement with Ken-nndy not to offer over 00 per cent, but AS tiio Olympic Club had broken. Its agroeniont'he would break his word and give ua 05 per cent., but no bonus. Sharkoy was satisfied and so was Delaney on my bbhalt and that day the articles of agreement were signed calling for a 2f) round contest between us with 7,1 per cent of the B.'i per cent to the winner and 2,'i per cent to the loser. Both of us agreed not to hit in the clinches, and Alex. Greggains and .Ilni (Jhe.iley were named as the men agreeable as referee. Sharkoy had kicked long and loud over a California man'performIng the honors, but finally agreed on Greggains. Trained at Oakland Neither Delaney nor myself lost any time getting into camp to train and the next day Vo movell to the Reliance Club of Oakitmd.
