Atlanta Constitution – January 12, 1888

Atlanta – James Lynch, issued the following statement: “I … declared the match in favor of John Muhler on account of Greek George forfeiting match, on account, as he says, the wrenching of his leg by John Muhler. If it was a hippodrome I am not aware of it. According to all rules I am right in my decision.” “Greek George” is hobbling around town with his leg bandaged, and Dr. Pinckney, his attending physicians, says his leg was severely wrenched, and that it will be several days before it will be sound and strong again.”
