McGoorty and Clabby Draw
Coulon Feels Chesty
Overall May Face Brown Final Cub
Red Clash Today.
Eddie McGoorty and Jimmy Clab
by boxed ten rounds to a draw in
Denver last night There was little
fighting to the mill. Each man -was
content to box for the entire ten
rounds, trying to win on points for
cleverness. Clabby secured a lead by
flashy work in the eighth and ninth,
but the Oshkosh man let out a reef
in the tenth and pulled even. Clabby
weighed 164 pounds. McGoorty was
heavier and Seemed to be over the
Art Pelky battered Andy Morrjs
so badly in their fight at Calgary,
Alberta, last night, that the go was
stopped in the eighth round. Pelky is
the heavyweight Tommy Burns is
touting as the coming heavyweight
champion. Burns discovered Pelky's
good qualities in actual fray and
should know something1 about him.
Luther McCarty will meet Burns'
wonder in CalgaryMay 24.
Johnny Coulon does not believe he
needs any more preparation to de
fend his title in a championship bout.
The Logan Square bantam reacned
home Friday after knockingoutTom
my Hudson in five rounds at Windsor
and was bubbling over with confi
dence. John claimed the mitts he
used weighed at least ten ounces, and
pridef ully pointed to the fact that he
had been able to do considerable
damage with the pillows. It Kid Wil
liams is still on the trail Coulon is
ready to take him on for ten rounds
at Kenosha. In his last eruption the
Baltimoreart was hot for a twenty
round bout on the coast and offered
Coulon a $500 bonus to sign. At that
time Coulon was in no condition to
give battle and Williams realized it
' Coulpn will be one of the boxers to
exhibit before the legislators at
Springfield next Tuesday night as an
argument in favor of he boxing bill-
