STAY ON OFFENSIVE
Willing to Take Punch in Order
to Drive One Home.
Fani Seldom See Flghtera Like Mike
O'Dowd, Jimmy Wilde or Jack
Dempsey Doing Much Backing
Up While Engaged In Ring.
Boxers of the fighting type figure
that n battler on thu defensive Is los
ing. Therefore, one seldom sees aggres
sive hnttlers, as Mike O'Dowd, Jimmy
U'llile, Jack Deuipsey and others, do
Ini; much backing up.
'.rhey are forever coining to their
quarry, keeping on top In tho milling,
taking punishment to hand out more.
The aggressive battler Is usually nn
open fighter. He gives and takes.
O'Dowd Is this sort of n scrapper. lie
has little defense and takes many
punches, hut his own heavy nrtlllery
soon brings down the opposition.
Wilde has an open style though a
peculiar one. Ilu also has n hard
punch. Deuipsey Is an open fighter
but n shifty one, und carries a wallop.
To back up though, to he on the
defensive now and then, does not
menu tlmt n boxer Is losing. Ilenny
Leonard Is very often backing up on
his opponents. Leonard uses this
method to draw his opponent to lilm
In the open and give him a better op
portunity to put over n knockout
punch If he desires to, Itlchlo Mitchell
Is nn nggresMve fighter, yet he often
Is waiting for the other fellow to come
to him. I'ete Uermon Is a defensive
tighter, but he never loses. He can
come out of his shell whenever ho de
sires and whip his opponent. .Tuck
nrltton Is tho snme sort of scrapper.
