Grandfather Block article, 10 Jan 1904, SLR - Andy Stevenson and George Block are scheduled...
Andy Stevenson and George Block are scheduled to meet In the near future,-having agreed upon the weight question. They fought about eighteen months ago before the St. Louis Rowing Club, the result being a draw after ten rounds of hard battling. Stevenson had considerably the advantage in weight on that occasion, and had Block on the floor the greater part of the first two rounds. The lanky South Slder managed to keep'hls head clear, however, always got up Insldo tho count, and camo back strongly enough to have Stevenson swaying on hla feet at the end. Stevenson hall the early stages of that battle altogether In his favor, while Block was securing a good lead at the close. The return fight between the two ought to produce a first-class contest.
