Storyline

Hard as nails and as strong winded as a gale in March, Red Hicks may have been a bit "chesty," but he was in perfect trim. The town depended on the champion, O'Shea, the fighting Irishman, to make soft putty of the world famous pugilist, but on the day of the fight there was no O'Shea. The supposition was he did not have the price: and other domestic difficulties interfered. O'Shea's trainer, however, solved the problem and Bed Hicks found his Waterloo.

There was roar after roar of laughter
17 September 2017 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

It is O'Shea, the best fighter in the village, come up against the champion middle-weight, Hicks, and after being horribly mauled for a few moments knocks the champion out. He had put a horseshoe in the back of his glove and, during a back-handed stroke, it brings him luck. There was roar after roar of laughter from the audience. Both are pretty well photographed. - The Moving Picture World, June 21, 1913
