Trivia

The bout lasted an astounding 48 rounds. The film company ran out of money - and film - in the 38th round and had to stop shooting, so there is no filmed record of who actually won the bout, but Battling Nelson delivered a low blow in the 48th round and was disqualified, Joe Gans winning by default. Gans scored two knockdowns and had his opponent out on his feet on two other occasions when the granite chinned Nelson was saved by the bell. Nelson absorbed a frightful beating, his left eye was closed and he was bleeding from his ears, mouth, and nose, as well as cuts on his face. Frankie Neil, a former bantamweight champion and a ringside eyewitness, said, "It looks as though Nelson, who was a very badly beaten man, took an easy way to quit", Chronicle Sep 4, 1906.
