BASEBALL SPORTS OF ALL SORTS BOXING
Milwaukee to Be Boxing Mecca of
Milwaukee is waking up. With the
signing of the boxing bill by Gov.
McGovern of Wisconsin, the organi
zation of fight clubs ha3 already been
started in the Cream City, and star
bouts in the near future are assured.
Promoters in the Wisconsin city
will have no opposition. Milwaukee
is the only place in the Middle West
of any size that is open to real fight
ing. It is figured that crowds will
attend the mills from Chicago, Min
neapolis, St. Paul and even Detroit.
This patronage will be healthy
enough to enable the offering of
large purses, and crack fighters will
be secured for the entertainments.
A new system of elimination bouts
may be instituted. It is planned that
when a fighter has cleaned up his
opponent in the Middle West he will
be matched at the top of his class in
New York, and the victor in this Iii
tersectional go will then be sent over
the derby route on the coast with
the champion of hiB division.
Its proximity to Milwaukee will
also make Chicago more of a boxing
center than it has been in the last
few years. Many of the fighters will
make their headquarters here, estab
lish permanent training camps, and
go to Milwaukee the day they are
billed to fight Already there are
signs of activity around the local
gymnasiums. As long as we can't
have boxing at home, Milwaukee will
furnish a good substitute.
Joe Jeanette gained a ten-roind
decision over Lester Johnson in New
York last night. Jeannette out
weighed his opponent twenty pounds,
but couldn't land a knock-out punch.
Jim Flynn has begun active train
ing in New York for his ten-round

The second invasion by the Eastern
teams of the South Side is finished,,
and though the White Sox did not
improve their position in the per
centage standing they are more firm
ly entrenched In fourth place than
when the Yankees blew into town.
An examination of the dope shows
that nine games were taken from the
seaboard aggregation and eight were
dropped. This showing is slightly be
low the percentage for the year of
New York and Washington, the
two teams that were expected to
prove easy for the Hose, upset cal
culations and copped the big end of
