Johnny Kilbane, featherweight
champion, has been preparing for a
year for his bout with G,eorge Cha-
"ney, which will take place at Balti-,
'more, Md., March 17.
Chaney is a freak fighter. He is
left-handed and fights with his right
foot and right arm forward. Kilbanej
knowing that the little Baltimore
knocker-out would dispute his title
and some day he would meet him,
has been carrying a left-handed
scrapper as a sparring partner.
Luke Ginley, who fights left-handed,
has worked with Kilbane almost
daily. Ginley not only stands as
Chaney does, but has the same kind
of overhand wallop.
Ginley calls the punch his "Mary
Ann. Chaney calls his the "Highland
Earthquake." Highland is the name
of the section of Baltimore in which
Chaney lived. The punch is a full
arm swing, started from the waist,
brought around in a complete circle
and down upon an opponent's jaw.
In the four years he has been
champion, Kilbane has met only two
fighters who stood with the right foot
forward. The only way he could get
practice against that sort of fighting
then, was to have a left-hander in his
By employing Ginley, even when
a bout with Chaney was a long way
off, Kilbane showed real efficiency
and offered a lesson in preparedness.
Now, when he goes into the ring with
the Baltimore slugger he does not
expect to be bewildered by Chanel's
odd tactics. n
Besides Bobby Reynolds, who
stayed the limit of six rounds with
Kilbane and was knocked out in one
rbund by Chaney, the fighters who
will meet in the championship bat
tle have each met Knockout Mars of
Kilbane knocked out Mars in eight
rounds in their first fight and out
pointed him in ten rounds in their
second bout Chaney met Mars once
and was awarded a knocked-out de
cision in four rounds. Mars injured
his arm. Up to the time of the acci
dent Chaney was chasing Mars all
around the ring and pelting him al
most at will.
