"The Fightin' Kentuckian" Marvin Hart knocked out Jack Root in the 12th round to be awarded the vacant Heavyweight Title in July 1905 by the recently retired Jim Jeffries. http://www.boxrec.com/boxer_display.php?boxer_id=011627
Since it took Jeffries two chances to win the title, he did not retire with the title this time. He decided to beat Hart in July 1905, since Jack Root already lost his Replay
Title shot. Jeffries enters the bout in peak condition. (I agree with Big_City about not reducing Jeffries yet, but I wanted someone else to say it. Thanks.)
Hart K7 Jeffries R2/4, P12.5/14.5, N0/0, C&I0/0. Time 1:04 of the 7th round.
Dice details and comments:
Hart rolled offensive 17 to activate KO. Jeffries rolled defensive 3. Oh, Jeffries has been knocked out. Huh. Power blow not nullified. Huh. Hart has 1 in 72 offensive roll chance for KO. Jeffries has 17 (rolls 3, 5, and 6) in 216 defensive roll chance for KO. Huh. This Replay
series has ended for Jeffries. He does not strike me as that mythically great of a fighter, but his run of luck has been terrible.
