Tommy Burns, the American pugilist, knocked out Jem Roche, the Irish champion, last night in the first round of the battle in the Theater Royal, for the heavy weight championship of the world. The men had hardly got into the ring when Burns feinted and put his right over on the side of the head. Roche went down and was counted out. He got up a moment later apparently un hurt. The men were in the ring one minute and twenty-eight seconds. The syndicate offered to " match Squires against - Burns on the same terms. Tommy Burns, Who Is Winning a For- tune in Kurojeaii Prize Kings. Ireland had never taken greater in terest in any sporting event than it manifested in this fight. It practically overshadowed the other St. Patrick day celebrations in Dublin at least, and it brought into the city a. great crowd of sporting men. This intense interest arose mainly from the fact that this is the first time In many years that an Irishman has fought In his own coun try for the championship. There was aUo a deep seated feeling that Roche would be able be able to wrench the honors from his American opponent. The odds of 3 to 1 that were being offered by the Burns supporters were not a good sign of the Irish feeling, for most of the betting was in small amounts at 2 to 1, which the book makers relayed at the larger figures. The scene in the theater was a re markable one. There were seats for 3,000 and every one was occupied. It was a most enthusiastic crowd and Roche received a great reception when he entered smiling and with confident air. The orchestra struck up "The Boys of Wexf or dV'othe spectators Join ing in the chorus. Burns, who had been watching the preliminary bouts, strolled casually to the ring to the air of "The Star Spangled Banner." He also was well received, but the reception of the fighters was Insignifi cant as compared with . that given Richard Croker when the master of ceremonies announced that it- was lareely through the efforts of the for mer Tammany leader that Roche was able to enter the contest. Mr. Croker, who was in a box at the ringside, had to acknowledge the tremendous cheeiv in it that greeted him. The two heavyweights came to the ring in their street clothes, and a quar ter of an hour was occupied in mak- ine- rjrenarations for the fight. At sound of the gong Burns Jumped rn the center of the ring, wnion was an 18-foot affair, and started his usual tactics of trying to draw out his op- nonent. This seemed to annoy tocne, who angrily struck down Burns" arms and then covered his lace witn Dom srioves to nrotect it from a threatened blow. Burns, however, was looking for a better chance, and a moment later he feinted with his left and shot his right over to the Jaw which was entirely unprotected. The Irishman went to the canvas, but not heavily. He slid along on his side and then rolled over, face downwards: Very few of the spectators, even those on tha stacrp were auick enough to see how it was done and there were cries of "fake." There was no doubt, however, that Roche went in to do his best, but he was outclassed and altogether too slow for a man of Burns' quickness and rlnp- o.raft. Roche said after he had somewhat got over the suddenness or nis aeieat: "He did it too quick, that's all." Burns, when questioned whether he would meet Roche or Squires again replied: "I will fight anyone, if there is enough money in sight." Th fitrht was for a purse of S7.500, which' was put up by a syndicate of which Richard Croker, tne rormer Tammany leader, was a member, and a side bet of $2,500. -In addition. Burns had $7,000 himself at odds of 3 to 1. The ringside betting was seven to two on the. American. TIYIjAND TO FIGHT WELSH. Fighting Dick Is to Tackle the Brtton at Milwaukee. Milwaukee, March 18.
