on Points at Start
of Contest.
liddie McGoorty. of Oshkosh. and Mike
Gibbona. the rrtasterly WOitarwalght of 9t.
I'aul. boxed ten loands to a draw at
MadiBon Square Gaiden last night, while
a crowd which packed the Mg ampl.ithea
tre to ita ca ?"Hy looked on. lf the nura
bar of blow? landed were to count, a:id
numbers alone to count, then Gibbons
would have been dedareu vlttor, but Mc
Goorty rallied in the last four rouada
?ith a rush. so tliat his hard hlttlng 9841
aiiKreBslveness evened the BCOi*.
Hoth men were t'.ied at the end. Mc
iroorty walked on leaden legs and Baapad
for hreath llke a Ilsh out of water. but
ha had natural atrength and great powers
..f recuperation. while Gibbons, robhcd of
moet of hla epeed. could not hold hlm
off. There waa a wlde dlfference of opln?
ion among the apectatora, for both men
n.id their frlends ln goodly numhers.
The bout did not come up to the expec
tationa of the crowd. and it was not iong
l efore the gallery boys. those inexora*>ie
iurora of all bouts. hooted and howled
tneir dljapproval. McGoorty, tha bigger,
stronger and less aclentific man, trled to
Btand oft and outbox the St. Paul wraith,
hoplng againBt hope that his sledge-ham
mer left hook would land a target and
bring about a qulck flniah. That plan ol
action sulted Glbbona. who aa***a nis
atrength. and almply outboxed tha TO
consin fighter. That did not t*JM wtth
the crowd, and the boys hlssed loudly at
the end of several rounde.
Glbbona ahowed in no uncertain manner
that while he ia wlthout peer ln his claes.
ue lacks the physique and hltting powar
to flght in the ranke of the mlddleweights.
aad 'i-d th?' ro?t<,fit 6?ne on ll ls more
ihan Hkelv that he would have come by
the cudgels. He landed on McGoorty,
landed hard and often ln the flrat alx
rouada, and piled up a goodly lead on
uolnts whlch stood by him at the end.
U last, however. McGoorty Bank home
a'few hard blows to the body that robbed
Mike of some of his apeed. and then the
lide awayed alightly. In the cllnchea.
nnd there were many, McGoorty bulled
hla man around. forced hlm Into cornera.
iad leaned hla wclght upon him, aii or
whlch tended to slow Othbons up. For all
that. however. McGoorty failed to show
snv real champlonship form. and it ls a
..ueBtlon where he would stand with a
savage. tearlng fighter llke Frank Klaua.
Glbbona. too. evldently had a world of
respect for his man
When lt came to the flner points of scl
entlfic boxlng Gibbons was all alonc. He
vjmply had the man from Oshkosh mlsa
ing by a city block. flounderlng Into the
roaaa and acting llke a novlce. Gibbons
landed hlB left. and the blow brought the
blood from McGoorty'a nose and Ups.
while punches almed higher up ralaad a
neat Uttle mouse over Eddia's eye. Try
as he would, though, Glbbona waa not
able to land a telling blow in all the nu
meroua punchea he placed on his man's
jaw and *olar plexus, and so the bout
went on for the fult ten roundB.
The crowd whlch attended was worthy
of the bout and fully attested the popu
larlty of boxlng ln this clty. When ?ba
doore were thrown open at 7 o'cloek the
early birds, demzens of the gallery for
the most part, awarmed in, rushlng pell
mell for polnta of vantage on the rall.
Tha eheaper seats filled flrat. and by the
lime the flrBt prellmtnary bout wai atart
ed. at S:45 o'cloek, there waa not an
unraaerved aeat to be had ln the bulldlng.
Ftill the crowd came. Those who boubM
io purchaae tlekete at any price mllled
about the lobby, buzzing llke a swarm of
bees. I-ater the holders of reaerved aeats
came. and had to shoulder their way
through the throng to get Into the arena.
The standlng i oom outslde- the ralllng was
packed flve deep with eager "fanfl"
The fun Btarted with a slx-round bur
legque between Jlmmy MorrlBBey, of In
dlanapolls. and "Toung" Motta, of this
clty. Motta had the better of lt. and
every one waa glad when th* flnal bell
rang. Tha aecond prelimlnary bout was
befVeen Jlmmy Taylor and "Young"
Koaner, two paperwelghts. The bout waa
faat and clever throughout, but Taylor
was a little too strong for hla opponent
?nd won on points handlly. The seml
flnal waa between Harry Condon, of
Brooklyn, and "Speclal Dellvery'* Hlrsch,
of Chicago. Hlrsch waa by all meanB the
better man and Bcored heavlly ln a faat
bout. Then tha crowd settled Into Its
seata and awalted the flnal bout. But
Joe Humphrlea Inelated upon introduclng
the rlders who will conteBt ln the inter?
natlonal slx-day race next week. The
crowd llBtened to a few tntroductlons
and then called for the bout.
McGoorty was flrBt to enter the ring,
and hifl appearance was the Blgnal for a
hcarty outburst of applause. He welghed
in at 166 pounda, and wlille he appeared
? little flnt he did not appear weak. Mc
Goorty had been in the rlng for about
three mlnutea when Glbbona entered.
Thla waa the algnal for wlld -heers.
GlbbonB. at 14S?4. looked ready for the
battle of hla llfe. The men feinted a
moment, McGoorty forclng, nnd Mlka
stepped Inaide of a hard left. Agaln he
made McGoorty mlse and poked a left to
the face. McGoorty forced, but Mlke
was indeed a wraith. and the pride of
Oahkosh mlssed. Mike popped a few
home. and kept McGoorty mlsslng or hlt?
ting his gloves. Round even.
In the second round the men went into
a cilnch and McGoorty popped a hard
left to the face. GlUbons made McGoorty
mlra and sent a left to the head. but
Eddle came back hard and sank home a
rlght to tbe bodv. Gibbons made hla op?
ponent miss agaln and, ahootlng home a
hard rlght acrosa on tbe Jaw, atenped In
with a aolld left on the face. It was
Oibbons'a round.
Gibbons peppered two lefta to the face
and m? pped around a rlght and left and
landed a few lefta on the face. McGoorty
ruBhed his man to tha ropea and smashed
a hard rlght for the head, but Mlke
-lipped around the punch and McGoorty
fo.indered to the ropea llke a 'longshore
nian, while Glbbona flayed him The
apeed of Glbbona had McGoorty up In the
alr and Mlke had the round.
Tha fourth round aaw Glbbona contlnue
hla maaterly work and the crowd roarod
mhile he peppered the face and alipptd
away from the returna. Juet before the
bell McGoorty landed a heavy punrh below
the bolt. In the fifth Gibbons shot home
three lefta to the jaw and McGoorty
rushed in. swing his left Mike stepped
awav and smashed a vastOOS right to the
face. McGoorty reeled, but. strong as a
steer. he contlnued. Gibbons easily out
boxcd him.
The slxth saw McGoorty go out to
force the pace. and he landed hard and
often. He ahook Mlke's body with solld
rlght hand punches, and a snappy left
drew blood from Gibbons's nose. The lat
ter appearcfl tired, and lt seemed as if
Fuperior power would win. ln the se\
enth round McGoorty took the lead, but
Gibbons met him at his own gatne, and
honors were ensy. McGoorty forccd him
info a cornet. but somehow Gibbons
found an avenue of escape and earned an
even break on the round.
The elghth was about even, although
some favored McGoorty because of his
aggressivonf ss.' He led often, but his
blows were blockpd for the mott part. He
was stronger than Gibbons. and lt was
evldent at this jolnt that in a long flght
he would win.
McGoorty contlnued to force the flght
in the nlnth round. and working in cloae
he shot a few hard rlghts to the body
and then forcod Gibbons Into a corner,
where he tugged at Mlke's atms. t'oming
away from a elinoh Gibbons planted his
left home. and made McGoorty miss three
lefts. The crcwd could not scp the aclen
tific work at all, and called for action.
McGoorty then poked a volley of lefts
home. and had Gibbons runninc aroiind
lo avold trouble. Thp bell found thp bova
ln a clinch, with honors In favor of Mc?
The last round was fast, and both went
out to take a chance. McGoorty cuffed
Gibbons around the rlng. snd sllpped
away from a right for the body. Gibbons
landed three lefts. a rlght and two more
rlghts. without a retum. whlle the crowd
howled. Pleaty of action drew more ap
plause from the gullery, and at the bell
honors were about even.
