win in six
If He Doesn't the Game
Fighter Will Put the i
Black Man Down '
and Out i
New York, Aug. 2S. Had Stanley
Ketch-1 and Sam Lungforrt been
mutch''. I six months ago, the black
man undoubtedly would hiive been a
prohibitive favorite In the betting.
Today opinions have chanted and
when these two do finally phake hands,
it will be found there will be hut little
difference in the odds diner way. And
this i the face of KetchelH rather In
different showing against Papke a
month or more ago. If either man is
a firm favorite over the other, It will
be because his supporters have larger
bankrolls a mere preponderance of
anoney. Hegardless of how a buttle
between them might result, today, It
looks like an even money proposition
and take your pick. Lang fords" ad
lirers smile when a fight between
them is mentioned; look wise, nod the
head knowingly and put up two fing
ers, sometimes three. This means
they tigure Sam to win two or per
haps three rounds. If you ask a Ket
Chel man what he thinks of It he will
say: "Ketch is too game for him.
He'll break Langford'a heart before
they have gone very far." There is
one p itnt upon which all sides agree;
if Langford can't win in six rounds or
less, he'll be worse than a ten to one
shot. Even Sam's strongest admirers
say ho will have to win In a hurry If
at all. It's rather a hard one to pick
and will keep the boys guessing for
tluM About l:quul.
It is when you compare the men
carefully that it is so hard Jo say who
Is the better man. Everything consid
ered, they are about as nar equal as
two men could be before the fight.
The battle itself may tell a different
story. This is the way many of the
closer students dope it out. LaiigTord
is the trickie r and more scientillc.
Ketchel is faster and presumably the
gamer. The latter statement Is based
on Langrord's bouts with Jack John
son and Joe Jeanette. With Jcanettc
at Lawrence, Mass., he stopped in six
rounds when he could have continued.
Nobody ever heard of Ketchel chuck
ing it while he was conscious. With
Johnson at Chelsea, Sam didn't stop
but he didn't give evidence that he
possessed that "bull-dog tenacity" the
descriptive writers are so fond of
featuring every time they wish to
make plain that a man Is couraseous.
In most of his other bouts, Lang ford
SO far outclassed his opponents bis
gameness was not put to the acid test.
As regards the other important char
acteristics that go to make up the
classy lighter, there appeurs to be but
little difference between Ketchel and
Langford. ISoth are hitters of the
most trrific type. Either can win
with one punch tr It reaches a vul-!
nerable spot. Both weigh the same.
Doth are powerful and can absorb a
world of punishment. Either can
take a punch without wincing that
would send the ordinary man to the
land of nod. In point of experience,
each has been fighting about gi ven
years. Barring a lucky punch on
cither side, they should put up as
wicked a fight as has been witnessed
in this section since the famous
Lavigne-Walcott battle at Maspeth
fourteen years ago. In fact. It re
minds tin boys of that bout in many
respects, Pretty nearly every time a
Ketchel -Langford contest is men
tioned somebody will cut In with a
remark to that effect.
An English right.
The Driscoll-Moran bout, while it
should result In one of the prettiest
contests imaginable, means much
more to the English sportsmen than
it does to the fans on this side, as
certain American fight promoters
would have found out to their sorrow
had their bids for the fight been ac
cepted. One promoter offered $15,000
and It Is stated on excellent authority
another one tendered $20,000. Had
the latter's bid been accepted. he
would have had an enormous loss
staring him In the face. A fight In
this country between Drlscoll and
Moran wouldn't have drawn twenty
thousand at the gate or within a mile
of it, even If held under the most
auspicious conditions. In an Inter
national match wherein one of the
contestants is an American, there Is a
certain element of pride or rivalry or
patriotism or something that ia at
tractive and makes it draw well at :
gate, but a fight In this country l.
tween two foreigners, nevalre. The
best e vidence they wouldn't draw the
larger figure Is shown by the fact that
neither Moran or Drlscoll and both
are very popular in this country, ever
draw that much when pitted against
the best boys America could trot out.
ijo where would two Englishmen get
off? Wow, wow, barked the Jack
rabbit. Only once did either Moran
or Drlscoll draw anywhere near a
banner gate. The latter and Abe At
tell pulled in fifteen thousand and
then it had everything In its favor.
The fight had been discussed in the
papers for weeks; It was held in the'
heart of Xew York City and in onej
of the prettiest and most finely ap-
pointed club-houses the eye cver
rested upon. It's a good Job for the!
American promoters they didn't grab,
the coining bout at the figures quoted. '
Two in tlic rain.lv. I
It is seldom one family turns out I
two such capable boxers as Abe audi
.Monte Attell. When Monte was
beaten by Owen Moran in this elty
upon the Englishman's first visit to
this country, it was thought he'
wouldn't do. He was so badly out
classed there didn't appear to be much
hope for him. But he kept on plug
ging away, took his beating like a
little major when they came along and
gradually worked his way to the top
of the heap. Today, Xew Yorkers are
anxious to see him perform against
Mcttovein. foster. Goldman, Wagner
or any of the little Eastern cracks and
he is sure of a good house the first
thin- he starts in the east. His latest
victory over Percy Cove, the Human
Slat, was some performance. When
C"Vi- was fighting hereabouts he al
ways had a hard time getting on
matches. Tln scorned to be afraid of
him und the fact that Jimmy l)e For
est and his confrere Hen Rosenthal,
stood ready at all times to back him
for a thousand bills in real money:
against anybody his weight, didn't J
help matters along any. Looks like
Monte has a great chance of winning
the bantam championship.
Tlio lUggx-st Purs.
About every twenty minutes a fresh
offer for the proposed Jeffries-Johnson
contest Is announced, Jeff will
not return from Europe until October
1st and until he does, nothing definite
can be done. When It comes to pick
the battle-ground he will have a lot to
say. Johnson may be champion ac
cording to ring usage, but public sen
timent is with Jeffries and so long as
he Is half way fair In his demands, he
will have the support of the sporting
clans. At this writing, California and
Nevada have the Jump on the other
competitors. Finish contests have
been held In both states and that is
what the public wants to see If Jef
fries and Johnson come together,
forty-five rounds or more. Coffroth Is
hot after the bout for his Colma
arena and will no doubt prove a stub
born contender when the time for the
real bidding is at hand. The bids so
far made public impress one as being
"stall" bids. Like when there Is a
newspaper voting contest for the
handsomest fireman or the most dar
ing motor-man. The supporters of
the contenders hold back their cou
pons until the last day, then dump
them on a truck and send in about
thirty tons to the contest editor. The
bona fide bidding for the fight hasn't
started. When Coffroth, McCarey,
Mcintosh, Nevada and a few others
start In earnest, there will be some
fun. t'ndoubtedly the largest purse
ever given for a tight.
Squirt's (jults Game.
Word conns from Australia that
Boshtei Bill has not retired from the
game but has bought a farm at Tam
werth. He will divide his time be
tweeen farming and fighting. Squires
certainly had about as tough a streak
of luck as ever befell a fighter. From
the time he first left Australia, he lost
five In a row and all knockouts. Three
to Tommy I!urn and one each to Jack
Sullivan and Jim Flynn. The Austra
lians thought he was the goods and
considered him champion of their
country. The following paragraph
was penned by a Sydney scribe: "Bill
first saw light in Narrabra, New South
Wales, a town where I asi told you
have only to mention fight to be ac
commodated, without the merest sug
gestion of preliminary fuss regarding
side wagers, purses or whacking the
gate. When Bill grew up he assisted
his father in the carrying business
and on those occasions, the respon
sible position of c-ook was the more
important of many filled by him.
Young Squires' 'dampers' anil "Johnny
Cakes' were the talk of the rural folk
living miles beyond the limits of the
Narrahri district and It seemed quite
probable that Bill might have devel
oped into a flourishing banker had he
been able to knuckle down to such
a- ns it appears to him humdrum
existence. Subsequently the lad
found profitable and muscle-making
employment in sleeper getting, shear
ing and mivvylng. and to that rough
work he attributes his present excel
lent health and great strength." The
abov.- Was written Just before Bill
fought Burns. H is not known what
file said fistic chronicler wrote after
Squins lost the ili- in succession.
