1 wanted to fight this sprinter in a 16foot

In summing Ills exploits and experience
ap a pULlllstsullIvan says
Of nil the men with whom I have boxed
arred and fought I consider flynn Kllraln
Hlnd and Flood the earnest croup or
the genuIne garacnoss ot those man In my
opinion there can bo no doubt llyun etoot
up and fought mu like n innn did not resort ti
nny trickery or petty dirtiness but fought
from the start and ho was In tho ring for tho
came curpoe that I was namely to demon
strate which was the superior man liven ban
Pluck so hn Kilraln so havoHlado anti Flood
Others may differ from mo In this opinion but
I really think I ought to know about tho mon
as I have faced and beaten tbnm nil
When I started out boxing 1 felt within
myself n I do now that I could knock out
any man living I could always beat mans
Kiiiird down and whon boxing for 1 contest I 1
never attempt to spar for nn opening but r go
right In to box ant win from the start I do
not bollovu In sparring to foul tho other man
out The other ninn is second to meat every
Htaco of tlm fight I co In to win from tho very
first second and 1 never stop until I have won
Win I miibt and suit t will nt every stacs ol
the game
1 never had stnsp fright my life do nol
know what It Is i and do not suppose I could
understand It if somnbody would try to tx
trf
plain It to me Another thing I will say I
never havo been hit hard enough hy anybody
to feel It during thin light I huvo never felt a
mans blow In my life
I < vas the first one to demonstrate under

knock a man out of time In le than four

any nun that Isfor I boxing or fighting I
would not gIve my opinion for rowing or any
Ihoratliletia shorts because 1 do not know
enough about them
Ilhlnk flue most Important things to bn
onsldored In training tire to get nIT nn much
lat as possible to remove whatever water
here is In the system to harden the muscles
of f the body so as to Increase the amount of

coupled with plenty of hanl work In
walking running jumping and occasion
ally n llttlo boxing I do not box or
