"bit the dust" Of course, Wlllard didn't remain / down for nny npproclablo length of timo, but ho claimed It was only a "slip," but there were eyewitnesses. . And Bomo of them sent the word broadcast that Wlllard was "knocked down In a sparring oxhibllloa with Frod Fulton." Dtnled Knockdown. Wlllard and his friends dented that ho was knocked down, and a controversy arose as. to.'whothor ho had been dropped or noL And this resultant controversy caused Fulton's stock to boom. "To help matters along Frod bowled over half a dozon lessor lights, scoring knockouts In rapid order, and boforo the year was' out ho was matched to fight Wlllard for tho title. Tommy Burns was to promote tho motch In New Orloans oh March 4 of the following year. Then Fulton met Porky Flynn on January 28, 1910. and made such a mbcrable showing that, despite the fact that he got a refereo's decision tho match with Wlllard was called off. Fulton claimed ho was ill and out, ot condltUm when he met Flynn, and Ills contention was borne out some tiuio Inter when he knocked out Porky in tour rounds. Came Back Strong. Less than three weeks after the Porky Flynn fiasco in New Orleans Fulton knocked out Fireman Jim Flynn In two rounds. This served to rehabilitate the Ilochester giant, and he followed this by knocking out Al Rolch ^n nine rounds'. Andro Ander- -son, Tom Cooler and ChaHlo.
