Kid Williams of Baltimore is the
new bantamweight champion.
Johnny Coulon, former pride of
Logan Square, is absolutely through,
and after his showing in Los Angeles
last night can not hope to cope even
with the second raters.
Coulon took as decisive a beating
as was ever handed a champion. He
lasted two rounds and a half and
never even slowed Williams up with
a hard jpunch. He had no defense and
Williams immediately went to work
aifd pounded the champion's kidneys.
It wasn't a fight. It was a mas
sacre. Coulon's star doesn't set in a blaze
of glory. He let glowing stories of
his wonderful condition come from
his training camp. According to these
bunk yarns, Johnny was in the best
condition of liis career. Fortunate
ly few people were influenced to bet
much money on him. The fake stuff
boosted the gate and helped Coulon
swell his last big purse."
Williams only got $1,500, as he had
to pay Coulon $1,000 to fight him.
No one will have to ,pay the Balti
Q' morean to give them a fight.
He's a real champion.
Storks, gulls and other long-legged
birds sleep standing on one leg.
