The late fight for the English Championship
--Probable Fatal Termination.
, the defeated combatant in the pugilistic contest which took place on Tuesday, the 6th inst., is now in London
, and considerable apprehensions are entertained as to his recovery from the effects of the severe blow he received in the last round with his powerful opponent, the "Staleybridge Infant." It has been ascertained that Paddock
's ribs are fractured, and he is suffering greatly from internal injuries; and as his constitution is much impaired by previous illness, (he having been a short time since under medical treatment in Middlesex Hospital for paralysis of the lower extremities,) his condition is rendered more precarious.
Under the most favorable circumstances, the result of this fight will bring to a close Paddock
's career in the prize-ring--London Globe.
