No More Mixing of Color In the
Prize Ring; Whites To Fight Whites
Jack Johnson Goes to the Discard and Must Fight Negroes or WotMag, the
-By T. S.
NOW that the big boxing pro
moters of "the country Wave de
cided to set together and bring
forth a real white heavyweight cham
pion, the interest among the big fel
lows becomes more noticeable. With
Jack Johnson practically barred in ail
the big centers of the country there is
no chance for a battle between the
negro champion and a white man,
therefore. Johnson will have to be con
sidered eliminated. It will be the
same with all the negro fighters. It
may not be fair to Sam Iangford and
Sam McVey or Joe Jeannette, but the
fact remains that the followers or
boxing in this country, as well as the
public generally, are about through
with big matches between white and
blacks and in the. future it will be
whites in their own sphere and blacks
It would have been much better to
have had a white man win the cham
pionship from the negro champion,
which would certainly have bei the
case within the next year or two, but
under present conditions it would al
most be worth a promoter's life to at
tempt to match Jack Johnson sad a
white man. Jack Johnson has had
but two fights for the championship
In over two years, one with Jim Jeff
ries, which was a shame when it is
known now that the former cham
pion was absolutely unfit for such a
struggle, and the other wtth Jim
Flynn, who was nover given a lookin
with Johnson. The latter won the
title from Tommy Burns in 14 rounds,
a small man, who weighed 16S pounds,
against 210 for Johnson. Johnson
Should have stopped Burns in two or
three rounds, but even when he had
him badly dazed in the first round, he
failed to stop him, and in the 14th
Burns was ready to proceed, but the
police lieutenant interfered.
Tom O'Rourke, manager of Al Pal
xer. the big "white hope," says John
son would surely have been beaten by
Falser within a year, and he is sorry
they could not be brought together, as
he considers the Iowa farmer a bet
ter man in every way than Johnson
ever was; that is, physically, and an
other year would have given him the
necessarv exnerlence and confidence.
Then there Is Luther McCarty, an
other big hope, who is coming right
along, and Jim Flynn still figures In
the hunt with all of them. Tonr Mc
Carey, of lios Angeles, has started the
ball rolling by offering a diamond
belt to tie winner of a heavyweight
elimination tourney, the same to be
emblematic of the world's heavyweight
championship. As a starter. Jim
Flynn and Luther McCarty are
matched to go the marathon distance

cember 10. It will be a thorough test
fpr both of them and the winner will
have a right to ,stack up against Al
Palzer over the same distance. Then
let the winner of this contest meet the
Britich champion. Bombardier "Wells.
The latter was defeated by Palser in
New York, but not until he had given
the farmer an awful beating in the
first two rounds, fighting himself out.
Wells has a right to be considered in
the run for the heavyweight title. An
other white man who may figure in
the settling of the title is Jesse
Willard, the big hope from the south
west. Willard is not at the top of
the heap just sow, but he has made
a splendid showing in the east of late
and gives promise of developing into
o .luiii hssvvweirht There are others
1 sDrineind ui and now that they know
there is a chance for the title among
all the whites it will not be surprising'
to see several good ones brought out.
Talking about heavyweights, also
reminds me of the stand taken against
Jack Johnson by the many promoters
throughout the world. It was the
Australian boxing king Hugh D. Mc
intosh who was the first to take ac
tion against the negro ehampion, fol
lowing reports of the Chicago affair
with the white girl. When Mcintosh
cabled back saying that Johnson was
barred from Australia, as far as he
was concerned, it was followed by sim
ilar action! by the big California, clubs,
then New York and also London and
Paris. However, it cost Mcintosh
more money than all the others com
bined, for he had Just paid out over
$2000 in cables, sending a special rep
resentative over here io get Johnson,
not counting the money he paid out
in holding Langford and McVey over
in Australia to fight the negro. Mac
had to pay a nice bonus to keep the
two Sams over in the Kangaroo coun
try and it is pretty safe to state that
he was out of pocket around $10,000
bv the deal.
Discission of the Wolgast-Mandot
bout brings to mind the fact that it
was Jimmy Clabby, former welter
weight champion, who first taught Joe
Mandot the clever side of boxing.
When Jimmy Clabby first went to New
Orleans to fight Jimmy Gardner he
was unknown to followers of tho
game, but his great battle with the
champion of the welters at that time
gave Clabby a boost into the limelight,
such as he never experienced before.
It was only natural that he should get
another try with Gardner and at bet
ter terms. Clabby went to New Or
leans for the second contest ahead of
time and while training he had a
youngster whom the "boys called Joe
watching his every move. Jimmy took
a fancy to the kid and sparred with

him daily. He even took pains - to
show him all the movements he had
acquired himself in his numerous
fights and workouts and by the time
the date of the fight rolled around the
Kid had mastered many of Jimmy's
blows and shifts. The Kid. none other
than little Joe Mandot, a French
youth, began to get into preliminary
bouts and made such a good showing
that he soon graduated into the wind
ups. He was living at Memphis then
and Jerome Raggio assumed the man
agement of him. He climbed steadily,
meeting all kinds of opponents, ban
tams, feathers and. some lightweights.
His rise from that point was rapid and
in all his fights orfe could see Jimmy
Cubby's style throughout He-has the
same snappy style about him that
made Clabby such a favorite in Aus
tralia. Like Clabby he has a tantaliz
ing left hand, that works overtime
against an opponent's face, and a right
cross that is always dangerous. Joe
does not use the loop-the-loop so much
as Clabby but he can when he wants
to. When Joe meets Wolgast it will
be like a smaller edition of Clabby at
