General Row at Prize Fight
Jim Sellars, colored welter weight champion of Iowa, met his first defeat near Marshalltown, being knocked out in the fourteenth round by a white man named Greenwood. An all round fight among the spectators followed the announcement of the result, and many eyes were blackened and heads bruised. A number of arrests would probably follow.
