    from Wikipedia article about Willie Ritchie: 'Ritchie's first title shot in a match with lightweight champion Ad Wolgast on November 28, 1912 in San Francisco. Ritchie dominated the fight, and after Wolgast landed two blows below the belt in the sixteenth round, the referee called the fight for Ritchie."
