rhough Beaten to a Frazzte by

Californian Stood for All Sorts of Pun

Not Floor Him.
Kalamazoo, Mich., Nov. 14. Bo
jause his manager insisled that the

were on their feet at the end of the
10th round, Hugo Kelly was last night
deprived of a well earned victory over
Kelly gave Barry a terrific beating
and only the gameness of the big Irish
man saved him from being knocked
out. He was the receiver general for
all sorts of hooks, crosses and jabs
that jolted his head on his shoulders
and racked his body. Early in the
second round his left eye was split and
throughout the contest it was stream
ing blood:from repeated punches that
found lodgment there. Dave was blind
ed by the blood and also by the rapid
ity and force of Kelly's punches.
Hugo showed wonderful cleverness.
He was fast as a streak and rarely
started a punch which did not land
on the spot aimed for. On the other
hand, Barry usually found Kelly's el
Lows or gloves in the place he thought
Hugo's head ought to be.
Kellv fought with his head down
and used much the same style that he
has shown in past battles. In this
method of fighting he had the advan
tage of Barry, who stood erect, and
therefore presented more points of
attack. Kelly's best blows were his
left jabs and sharp crosses to the jaw.
The former went in quick as a flash
and with force behind them, until he
had become tired.
t an Idle Minute.
The bout did not have an idle min
ute and was remarkably free from
holding. When the men went into a
clinch it was only for an instant and
then they, broke and went at it ham
mer and tongs again. Kelly started
out by fighting cleverly and had great
success. at this game. But Dave was
not to be denied, and the fighting
Irishman earned Jiis name. He bored
in and made Kelly stand toe to toe
many times, but Hugo was equal to
he emergency. He swapped punches
with Dave and only once was .he
forced to break ground.
