Atlanta Constitution – January 8, 1888

Savannah – The crowd of spectators left the hall satisfied that George is a more skillful wrestler than his burly opponent. Ross weighed some twenty pounds more than George was perfectly fresh when he went into the match. George had slept badly for several nights, and was not in his best trim. He did not understand the fancy style and harness business. Ross is au fait at this. Had the wrestling been in the catch-as-catch-can style George would have thrown his antagonist every time. I am willing to back George against any man in the world in catch-as-catch-can. He is admitted to be the champion of the world in this branch.
