The film we have of him, shows a very distinct and odd style. The Corbett fight attests to this
A style that perhaps pertains more to bareknuckle style than modern boxing?

I thought Corbett got the better of Fitz in the film until the knockout blow. Corbett was a lil bit past it at the time too. Corbett outboxed him easily, corbett knocked fitz down(fitz cheated by grabbing on to the ref and prevented himself from being counted out enabling him to get a long count). Corbett used modern boxing traits like footwork, movement, and a left jab. Fitz seemed very confused. Fitz did land a a great equalizer, perfectly timed. Great Punch. Solar Plexus shot is deadly.
