Continued from First Page II
training quarters for a week and Fltz took a liking to him The young
ster eays he bar all kinds of hunches that Fltz will win
All around tho training quarters have beon Joshing Fltz about Gardner
calling him old man
° Well I must bo it Gardner and Corbett say BO says Fltz Even in
Philadelphia they think that way When I failed to knock Grim out
everybody says Oh tho great Fltz failed to knock out that little fellow He
must be old or Grim must bo groat S
Now Grim Is making money showing In theatres It I did knock him out I
theyd say Well why shouldnt he hes big enough Ho has the hardest
punch of any of tho big follows Well just wait till this light is over Ill
show Grim a few things I wont be afraid to use my hands then i
Gardner Is Confident I
Gardner is In tho best of spirits nil day He says positively that Greg1 J
gains PIerce Barry and Foley will be In his corner Ho thinks Delaney al
great man but says ho cant make Fltz fight any better I
Gardner says ho also knows all Hobs wallops as ho has watched him Ul
two fights lately and studied his best blows Greggalns has tried them dally
for weeks and feels that Gardner has been touted right I
noforeo Eddie Graney was over to Gardners quarters with samples of I
soft tape which he says must be used in tho fight All are satisfied at
Larkspur and say bandages will be put on In the ring just to show Fltz
they cant bo blurred Fltz will put his on after ho leaves Corbetts where I
the men weigh In lie will put them on at the hotel saying It would toko
up too much time In tho ring It will take him an hour or so to upholster
mitts and ho would hate to keep the crowd waiting that long
Must Be on Time or Be Fined
Doth men have been warned by the club that thoy must bo in the
pavilion at 915 sharp otherwise a fine will be imposed
Tho same idea was worked In tho CorbettJeffrlcs battle and there
was no delay
Fltz will spar six pTiantoen rounds with Berger before the light Ho
says ho has to warm up before getting fight In his system Ho did this
the night ho met Jeffries George Dawson put him wise to this now stunt
and Fltz thinks It makes him fast Otherwise he might be forced to waste
hIs time In the ring with Gardner Ho wants tho light over as quickly as
possible and when he enters the ring says ho will be ready to start Just as
soon as the gloves are put on
Tho Yosemite Club people appreciating the foot that the house will
bo packed to tho rafters havo ordered a special squad of police to seo that
order is kept and that sports be given tho scats they bought Tho gallery
doors will open at 630 so that there will be no crowd for boti < waiting for
scats
Both Fit Physician Says
Dr TlUman tho club physician visited both men in the last two days
and reports they are both fit for the battle Ho thinks Gardner a great
man physically and says his condition could not bo bettor
There will be two sixround bouts to cheer sports ap before tho big
fellows enter the ring Tho first will be a sixround go between old
Johnny Ritchie and George Curran Tho second preliminary will be a six
round bout between Maurel Herrera brother of Aurelia and Joe Bell

HE THINKS GARDNER WILL WIN
CORBETT ARGUES THAT FITZ HAS SEEN HIS BEST DAY AND
THAT GARDNER WILL WIN BY A KNOCKOUT
CORBETT Says
ARDNIIIt will win
GARDNER ago will bo a handicap to him Ho was a great
fighter In his day but his sun has set His cunning and crafti
ness wUl serve him to little purpose against the young man Gardner
KHz may feel like his old self when tho gong sounds the beginning
of tho bout Before It has rung the end of the fifth round lie will be I
weary and tired and ready to go down and out
If Fltz wins ho will have to do BO quickly I do not think ho can
travel six rounds at a winning gait Ho hasnt got the vitality now
Ho overrates himself when hu Bays he will show mo and others that
he Is far away from the hasbeen class
No man can last forever and If Fltz was wise ho would have taken
that Into consideration bofore he made this match
While I predict a victory for Gardner I do not care to namo the
round In which I think Fltz will go down and out It wont go the limit
though Gardner will win by a knockout
