-.Willie Ritchie, lightweight cham
pion of the world.
To a great many who saw the
San Francisco boxer give Ad
Wolgast a thorough, beating in
four founds it would 'noj,-
Ad Wolgast's appearance dur
ing Ritchie figh't showing how he
was battered (left) fight pose of
prising to see him set down in the
records as the premier of his class
within a very short time, and if
Joe Rivers fails to annex the
crown on next Independence day,
Ritchie will'be the real contender
for the title.
A few months past 21, with
only a shorty career in the ring,
the future of Ritchie is one of the
j brightest and full of promise. A
thoroughly clean liver, bright, in
telligent, possessed of personal
ity that wins friends, having the
bearing appearance of a young
bank clerk rather than that of a
boxer, he is a credit to a much
malignejl profession. Io tin. ears
