The pugilistic encounter was almost devoid of interest, when time was called in the ninth round, Bungree rose from his second'sicnne, as if going to the scratch, but to the astonishment of all, he approched the referee and said " he would fight no longer; there had been a great deal of talk about crcS3es, and he would forfeit Mr. Humphrey's (his backers) money. He then returned to his corner, and calling for his clothes prepared to quite the ring, saying, " he would pever enter Mr. Humphrey's house again. He then retired, leaving Sambo in possession of the field after fighting eight rounds in 11 minutes.
