HOW JOHNSON WON
. FROM KETCHELL
NEOEO CHAMPION HAD NO TROUBLE WITH STANLEY FLAYED
WITH HIS HAN SO AS TO GET GOOD MOVING PICTURE JOHN
SON FLOORED ONCE BY KETCHELL.
SAN FRANCISCO. Oct. 17. In
one of tho most spectacular finishes
thnt ever attended a heavyweight
championship fight, with tho holder
of the tltlo sprawling on the canvas,
ono moment and Ketchel down for
ull tlmo the next, Jack Johnson
knocked out Stanley Ketchel In the
middle of the twelfth round at Coff
roth's Mission street arena esterday
afternoon. It was a Hcnsatlonal
wind-up to what hud been a thor
oughly one-sided bout In favor of
Tho crowd couldn't believe Its cjob
as It mw Johnson on tho lioor, tak
ing his tlmo to recover himself. And
before they had fully digested that
tho Texan made a fierce lungo nt
Ketchel, caught him two vicious
left and right punches to the Jaw,
doflvercd with so much force that
tho negro fell over the prostrate
Ketchel and went tumbling Into his
own corner as Referee Jack Welch
was tolling oft tho seconds that wero
spelling dofeat for the Michigan boy.
Ketchel was completely out. Lifted
back to his cornor, the beaten man
was too dazed to talk and was quick
ly removed to his dressing room for
That Johnson Knockdown.
Noxt.to the defeat of Ketchel. and
"porlmps lu spite ef. that, the knock
down of the he'avj weight champion
was the spectacular feature of the
performance. Ketchel swung a hard
right as tho two men were advanc
ing. To the writer and to 90 per
cent of those who were In a position
to follow closely what was happen
ing, tho punch seemed to glance
"round tho back of Johnson's head.
Apparently, also, It had little force,
and there was a genuine surprise
when Johnson dropped down, spun
around on his knees with a smile
on his face and took advantage of
the count that tho rules of the prize
ring pormlttcd him. I
Ketchel says that he landed n
hard punch. Refereo Jack Welch af
firms that tho blow struck Johnson,
and tho colored man himself declares'
that ho was hit behind tho ear as
ho was coming In, and that the Im
pact of tne two bodies ruBhlng to-
gether was what made blm tall. Ho
sag also that tho blow dazed hlml
for tho moment, but It Is significant)
that, once on his fcot, ho waa not
so dated but that he ruBhed Ketchol
more viciously than at any previous'
stage of the match, and ""had so
much force behind tho right and left
ho swung In rapid succession that
tht right glovo shows where Ketch
ol's teeth pierced through the leath
er. It may have been a straight
knockdown that Ketchol scored; it
Is possible, of course, that the negro
could not save himself, but the writ
er did not bco a punch, that would
have such au effect, and It must also
be .remembered that such an ending
would be of vast assistance to tho
handling of the moving pictures.
Ketchel was apparently too weak to
have landed a tolling blow in tho
ninth, and the way ho fairly col
lapsed when Johnson put his force
behind two punches Is the best Indi
cation of his condition.
Nurses Ketchel Along.
That the, negro could have finished
tho fight much earlier than ho did
was apparent to those at tho ring
side, and that he was merely saving
Ketchel, evon to tho extont of hold
ing him up In tho earlier rounds,
When the white man was almost fall
ing, was proved to any tyro at tho
Ilefore the fight started It was
whispered about tho press seats,
coming from a well-known sporting
man, that Johnson would fight for
the moving pictures for twelvo
rounds, and that he would thon cut

would win in tho twelfth round,
nnd along In tho tenth, when there
woro lemnrks that Kutchol might
hint the limit. Little offered to bet
nity 'amount of money ,tlliat.)Joh,nson
would knock Ketchel out before fif
teen rounds had passed nway.
Nor Is this n chargo of any collu
sion botween Ketchel and' Johnson.
Each man was fighting his own fight
iind going his own Way, but there Is
reasonable, suspicion that Johnson,
for tho sake of the pictures, preferr
ed to alloW hln oppdnent, to last a
reasonable length of) time.
As early ns the second round John
son showed the crowd n flash of hi
strength when he uppcrcut Ketchel
with a right and sent him tq the mat
for the count of six. Again In tho
sixth round the burly black sent

One of them was a full left swing
that caught Johnson flush on the
point of tho Jaw. The 'negro shook
his head, laughed and went ahead,
but when tho fight' was over he was
carrying a badly swollen jaw, and In
ono spot the skin had been taken oft.
Tho other wns corking good left

stop Johnson. If anything, he car
ried tho fight more aggrosslvely than
ever, and at the finish of tho round
was leading by a wldo margin, as he
led In every lound of the battle.
In great measure, the barring and
knockdowns that have been noted
and tho final rally of both men, tho
I rounds wero much the same. At any

Johnson's favorite punch In the ear
lier rounds, and It was noted that he
was slow to get Into action with his
famous right uppercut. Uut he
raroly missed 'when he wanted his
left to crush Ketchel full In the face.
In tho second round Ketchol's left
eye showed signs" of being cut, and
In tho third nnd fourth tho middle
weight was bleeding profusely. He
seemed utterly unable to copo with
the more massive Johnson or to land
any punches on his own account. '

Champion Changed Taotics.
Once he saw that Ketchel was tot
tering and that he could not land,
Johnson changed hi tactics. In
stead of leading to the head, he forc
ed his lefts to the body, and there
was many a left rip to the stomach
that must have hurt the chap, who
was already weakened from the loss
of blood and discouraged because ho
could do nothing with the huge fight
ing machine that stood In front of
All through the fight It was evi
dent that Ketchel was endeavoring
to follow the course that had been
mapped out for him by Urltt. It Is
true that much of the time ho was
forcing Johnson around the ring,
but It Is also true that ho tried, with
the best of his knowledge of the
fight game, to force the black to
lead. And Johnson was witling,
when the opportunity offered, seeing
that ho would receive little In ex
change. There was some criticism that
Ketchel might have fought a better
fight, but he adopted his usual rush-
Hut this could hardly
have been. In brief, tho story might
have been told In fewer rounds than
It Is had the Lion rushed Into the
man who was waiting to receive
Marvelous Boxing Machine.
Once more, as In tho Kaufman
fight, Johnson was a marvel of box
ing skill. He feinted Ketchol time
and again, leading light lefts to the
stomach only to close In with a right
uppcrcut as his opponent protected
himself against a different punch.
Ketchel, on the othtr hand, showed
to poor advantage.
Ills rushes and his efforts to use
the shift material aa well never have
been tried. Johnson, seeming to
know what was coming, rushed back
out of danger's way and the punch
! would go hurtling by. encountering
nothing more than the atmosphere,
fully a foot away from the grinning
negro. All through the fcght, too,
Ketchel was puffing badly, as If his
, wind was none too good. And once
' he discovered (hat he was absolutely
powerless, a discouraged look came
ovr hf face, andlereTirtlrnVs-he f
Shook his head sadly between rounds
to friends whom he recognised In the
, In the Johnson corner there was
nothing but elation. There wss'sl
lence the first few rounds, but when
his second appreciated how easily
he was handling Ketchel they did
not try to conceal thslr pleasure.
"What round do oij. wont John
son to knock him out?" hurled Oeo.
Little at those back of the corner.
"He can do Ml now. Just nay the
Hut back of Ketchel'a chair there
was less noise than In other matches.
Willis Urltt. doubtless expecting de
feat before the ring wa entered, was
quiet save for an occasional plea to
"Steve" to be careful.
"Oh, how could you be so care
Iobs?" he cried to Ketchel as he car
ried the fallen man back when the
bout was over. "Ho wcould you let
him cop you when you had the fight
It wa scant sympathy, however,
to a fighter who had heard the count,
whose front teeth had been knocked
out by the Impact of the JohiiBon
punches, and who was bruised all
over and bleeding freely about the
Arena Packed With Spectators.
Thero couldn't have been any big
ger crowd packed Into 'that arena
than was present. The bleacherltes
were standing up, the aisles wero
crowded with fans who were crouch

Long before the first preliminary

With the preliminaries out of the
way, there was no delay' In getting
the principals Into view. Jack John
son, promptly at 3 o'clock, climbed
through the ropes. He wa given a
fair reception, but It wa small In
comparison with the ovation that
Kotchel received a few minutes la
ter, accompanied by Willi Urltt.
There was a perfunctory hand
shake between the two champions
and each went to his corner, John
son crossed over to examine Ketch
el's gloves, and when he did this a
second time Urltt objected forcibly
and made a pass at the negro. John
