EDDIE, MIKE AND BILL HITTING HIGH
PLACES FOR MIDDLEWEIGHT CROWN
The eternal triangle has bobbed
up —with the feminine
angles missing — and the public
sees Mike Gibbons, Hilly I'apke

of I'!■■ miijilliwi-u.li! boxing cham
McGoorty Is a slam-bang,
knock - 'cm - out - with-a-punch
fighter. He has beaten the
champions of Australia and Eng
land, and when middleweights
are scarce he takes on light
heavies for exercise.
Mike Gibbons, whose 10
--round draw with McGoorty has
added to the middleweight fog,
is a ring phantom. Jim Corbett
Buys he is the cleverest in the
In a 2ft-round bout Gibbons
would outbox any middleweight
living- -providing he was not
knocked out. Usually when box
er meets fighter over a long
route the fighter wins, but Gib-
bons is so infernally clever that
ho may lie tho exception.
Papke is different from either
Gibbons or McGoorty. Ho is the
biggest man of the three and the
most experienced. He' was
world's champion at one time, as

Papke Is champion of France
now, because he beat Georges
C'arpentier, in 17 rounds. He aid
not knock out Carpentier, but
made him quit.
McGoorty and Papke should
make a rattling good fight. Both
are terrific punchers and about
equal boxers. They have pile
driving rights and like to stand
up and exchange wallops.
Then, Gibbons for the winner.
It looks like Papke and Mc-
Goorty, and then Gibbons with
the winner, before the roses
bloom again in Indiana.
