EL PASO, TEXAS
when Willard met JFrank Moran, the
Pittsburg heavyweight In a 10 round
no-deeislon contest at Madison Square
Garden last Saturday evening before a
crowd numbering 12,000 which packed
the building from floor to rafters. The
contest Itself nas a remarkably good
one between big men; usually contests
between heavyweights, especially of a
limited number of rounds, are not so
pleasing to the fans as between lightweights-
or featherweights, but In this
instance the two gladiators cf the
heavyweight division put up a battle
mat was interesting from the time the
gors? sounded for the first round until
the finish came in the tenth round.
Despite the fact that there was a
difference of practically 60 pounds In
weight between the mefn, still tbev
sized up better than might be expected,
under such conditions. Willard. who

above his opponent, but this wa dn,

stood erect with hia left hand fnrtnnl
There Is no doubt In my mind that
Big Jess would have scored a com- I
plete knockout before the end of the '
tenth round had It not been for the ,
fact that ho broke his right hand in '
the third round. Had the big fellow
taken a chance with his left hand In
delivering more solid blows, he would
no doubt have stopped Moran Just the
same, out ine cnampion seemed to pre
fer to play sate, the same as he did
when he won the title from Jack John
son at Havana, nearly a year ago. It
Is lilstorv now, but It remains a fact
that had Willard desired he could have
finished JohnsoiTalmost any time after
the eighth round, for it was in this
session that he delivered a perfect right
hand blow to the negro's Io)dy ,
that really took the steam out of him
Willard may not have known it, but t
from statements made by Johnson him
self afterwards, he was nearly all in
at that time, but recovered and went
through till the 26th round. However,
Willard was playing safe and took no
chances whatever He did the soma ,

Thore were times when the cham- '
plon had the challenger staggering '
about the ring and if he had simply .
cut loose and taken a little chance him
self, he could have finished the con- I
test then and there without a. doubt
Probably It is Just os well that the
champion played safe, but with the size
and physical condition Willard pos
sesses It seems that he should have
opened up a bit and taken more or the
aggressive than what he did. There
were many people who were of the
opinion that Willard possessed nothing
but his brute strength and stamina.
They were fooled, however, for th
big fellow displayed a whole lot of
science and his blocking was almost
perfect. Dozens of times Moran would
swing wildly with a right and left, but
In only two rounds was he able to nut
over anv of these swings to the vital
spot. Willard had a habit of throwing
up his right arm In such a way as to
block the swings perfectly, but as
stated before, Moran became desperate

and the result was that he came back
all the harder and punished Moran
I.oiik Left Bothered Moran.
While Moran was more the aggressor
and was given credit for carrying the
fight to the champion, still It must be
admitted that Jess kept meeting hlin
with his long straight left to the face
and they certainly bothered the chal
lenger a lot. It was Moran's only
chance to work oil the aggressive, but
he found that WHIard's countering was
always dangerous and It was only oc
casionally that he took the chance of
swinging with both hands. Willard
also used an occasional right to the
body and each time he landed he
seemed to shake up the Pittsburger

nearly so perfect as those ho used in
his right with Johnson, although he
used them oftener It seems that af
