The Muldoon-Hugues Match

Sacramento Daily Record-Union – September 11, 1883

The Athletic Pavilion, at the corner of McAllister and Jones streets, San Francisco, was filled Saturday night with the crowd that usually attends wrestling matches, the attraction being a match between William Muldoon and Chas. Hugues.  According to the agreement, Muldoon was to throw Hugues in two hours’ wrestling to win the match, while Hugues, to win, had to prevent Muldoon from throwing him or to throw him himself.  Muldoon, however, failed, and according to the conditions, lost the match, not having thrown Hugues in the two hours.
