Bass Rules Favorite Over Popular Tod Morgan in Junior Title Scrap
Challenger Is Stiff Puncher
and May Stop Lad
BILLED FOR 15 ROUNDS
BY FRANK GETTY,
United Press Sports Editor
NEW YORK, Dec, 20.—Tod Mor
gan, dark-haired little fellow from
the west coast, who for the past
lour years has defended the junior
lightweight title as a true champion
should, may reach the end of his
reign over the 130-pounders tonight,
by the fists of walloping Bennie
Bass of Philadelphia.
The challenger figures to whip
Morgan on points or stop the cham
pion before the end of the scheduled
If Tod goes down to defeat and
returns to his Avocado ranch, he
will leave behind a worthy record
of a titleholder who was willing to
fight in defense of his crown.
Since he won the 130-pound
championship by stopping Mike
Ballerino back in 1925, Morgan has
engaged in sixteen title fights, most
of them tough ones. He has had his
ears battened down once or twice
in that time, fighting lightweights
like Phil McGraw and Stanislaus
Loayza, but he has always been will
ing and ready and able to fight,
which is more than can be said for
most of our champions of recent
Bennie Bass, who is a 7 to 5 fa
vorite to take Tod’s title, is a busy
two-fisted little slugger who can box
as well when he needs to. Bass
prefers rough going, and is quite a
body puncher, a style which should
be effective against the none-too
Morgan has not been impressive
in recent appearances in the east,
and so is one of the few cham
pions to enter the ring on the short
end of the betting.
It will be the first championship
fight Madison Square Garden for
fiftr . months.
