Kelly's Claims Far retched.
The claims set forth by Spike Kelly of
Chicago that he Is the world's welter
weight champion, are a little far fetched.
Spike is a good, tough fighter and may
some day land the welterweight crown,
bat at the present time there are others
with better claims. Kid Craves, former
Milwaukee boxer, but bow of Brooklyn,
and Mike Glover of Boston, have excel
