Once again a couple of rounds of the second of four Battling Nelson vs. Jimmy Britt fights are uploaded to youtube. Last time it was taken down quickly so now you know it.

This is for the lightweight championship in 1905 and one of Battling Nelson's finest hours.

"If I don't whip Britt, I don't want any one ever to speak to me again"

-Battling Nelson. September 7, 1905
