Asked on what grounds Cooke should award the fight to Hamilton, Goodrow said: "On patriotic grounds. He was born in General Hospital here and lived in the city for some years. We are appealng to him as a native of Hamilton." Cooke holds the rights to any return bout with a clause in the original contract. Mayor Copps said Goodrow's proposal could be the icing on the cake for Hamilton's birthday celebrations.
