Mexican Pete Had a Snap at Pueblo. Pueblo, July ll:'--"Mexican Pete" Everett of Cripple Creek, had about the easiest time of his life in a prize fight when he met J. C. McCoy before the Rover club in what was to have boon a 20-round go tonight. McCoy is a brick yarder and he showed up in the ring looking soft and flabby, while the Mexi- can seemed to be in pretty fair condi- tion. McCoy seemed to be afraid of his opponent and failed to lead once during the fight. In the first round Everett started the blood from MeCoy's nose and thereafter the Mexican devoted ,his attention to that member with short right hand jabs, putting in an occasional left hand swing upon McCoy's jaw. The (',ripple Creeker could have put his man out in the second round but he allowed him to stick until the third. They had no ~ooner met in the middle of the ring than Everett landed a left hand awing to McCoy's jaw and the brick yarder went down and out. Two local men fought a fast preliminary.
