It was a fast fight, O'Brien doing most of the leading. Johnson was slow on his feet. Re- peatedly the champion rushed his smaller antagonist but seldom laud- ed effectively. A right hand counter in the ?Ifth round cut O'Brien's right eyo and this was the sum total of the dam- age -done in the six rounds. The spectators shouted wildly ev- jery time O'Brien landed, and hooted Jiohnson for his apparent work in the clinches. Johnson had nothing to say after the hout except that he thought he tbe better of it. O'Brien was enthusiastic over his showing. The law does not permit a decision but. it was called a draw.
