TIM Kvenlug World wired Fred
Fulton for a few lines about
Ills Tlctory over Frank Moran.
The reply was ono of tho best state
ments ever given out by a fighter.
It will Interest every rasa who has
C(roidertl button a posslblo future
heavyweight champion. For a year
we bave known that tho blfr plas
terer bad every physical advantage,
combln-d with a hard punch and re
raarkablo skill. Ho has won many
fights In sensational style, appearing t
like a Riant Kltxslmmons. Yot there
has been soino criticism uf hla ubllity ,
to take punishment and his willing
ness to stand up under It. Person- (
ally, I havo a'ways believed that
,.,( .mini ontlrrl n "vrllnW atrfnll"
In Fulton was merely his Intelligent
application of boxing skill the skill
that doesn't favor a headlong, slam
bang, reckless method of fighting
when In temporary danger. In old
daya Fulton's method would have
been spoken of as "good generalship."
Short, iio-dcclslon bouts are killing
"encralahlp" In tho ooxinr: rin?.
N WW OKLKANS, La., Feb. 2. -Having
rend a great deal of late,
to tho offoct that I was possessed
of a yellow streak, I went Into
the ring last night with the taunt
ringing In my oars. Kvnn som
of the sporting writers who are
friendly to m and who wunt mo
to become world's champion were
not uro that I had stamina. I
have often read botweon the lines
of some of the stuff written by
most enthusiastic backers.
Woll, I showed them tho stuff I
was mado of. 1 stood up, exposed
my jaw and lot Moran hit ma
twenty-six, times. I counted tho
blows. Two or threo of them
hook mo n little, but 1 wan no
more scared than If I wero Hitting
In a barber shop reading Thn
Kvcnlng World sport page. I
wish I could describe my stato
of mind. T. took a big chanco In
letting a bushy fellow pound on
too at will for a minute, but It Is
worth It. I Just bad to show
them, and I did.
Moran Is a grand fighter, nnd
lio was brave to tho last minute.
TIIIH clean-cut statement of Ful
ton's should settle nil doubts
of his gumcnesa. It settles
too tho doubt that ho could stand up
before tho battering .less Wlllard
wnuM aurclv hand out unless ho
erowii too blow to hit such u 1
imecdy big follow ns tho pliiHlcrer.
l'ulton took twenty-six of Mornn's
heavy cloutb and calmly counted
tj,tmdfcrrlng tho knockout ho In
tended to put over on Moruu until
ho was nuro ho had shown tho spec
tators his own cool courage and his
ability to take as much punishment
aa any other heavyweight lu tho ring.
Those at tho ringside, were puzzlod
by the way Fulton loft his Jaw In tho
path of Mornn's wallops with ap
parently no dcslro to avoid punish
ment. Fulton hail explained. Ho was
merely doing thn thing that Wlllard
did in the seventh and eighth rounds
of his bout with Moran. Only Wll
lard let Moran land and turned liU
head with tho blows to break their
ftjrcc. And Wlllard didn't renew bin
own attack afterward and knock
Uetwecn Fulton's performances
with Iangford, Welnert, Hmlth, Mor
ris nnd Moran, and Wlllard's best
ring efforts, there Is no comparison

bout in California. Ho bus done
everything united of htm so far, and
Is eager to light any ono who stands
In his way. Ho Is uftur the heavy
weight title too.
It Is many years &lnco two such
brilliant heavyweights as Fulton und
Dempsey came into prominence at
the s.mio 'imc. What a light they
will malto when they aro matched!
They will be matched, of course, for
Fulton has announced that he Is
