Coulon May Postpone Williams Fight
Campi In Easy Win.
There is a possibility that Johnny
Coulon, bantamweight champion,
may postpone his fight with Kid Wil
liams of Baltimore, scheduled for
July 29 o'n the coast.
Johnny's fight with Bums in Ke
nosha Monday nig'tit convinced him
he is far from right. Since his illness
he has been unable to put on weight.
When he entered the ring Monday
he scaled only 110 pounds. At the
close of the go he had worked off
four more pounds. This gave Burns
an advantage of nine pounds.
Williams is a tough customer, un
usually rugged for a bantam, and
can give Coulon a battle even if the
latter is in condition. If he should
catch the champion in a weakened
state, the title would change hands
in a twinkling.
Coulon plans to leave' for the coast
July L He will go into the moun
tains in California and put in a cou
ple of weeks climbing the hills. At
the end of that time, if he finds he
does not gain in weight and stamina,
he will undoubtedly postpone the
Williams go. If his condition is satis
factory there will be no hitch.
A new contender for Coulon's title
bobbed up last night when Eddie
Campi, the coast bantam, got the
decision over Charley Ledoux after
twenty rounds of milling' in Los An
geles. In the early rounds the
Frenchman put up a game battle, but
Campi wore him down at the finish.
There was no question of Campi's
superiority. This was his second big
victory in a few months. In his last
battle he gained a decision over
Frankie Burns in twenty rounds.
Campi is one of the youngest fighters
in the business and has plenty of time
to gain the championship.
The Boston Red Sox will raise the
world's championship flag today.

Accept it from our inspired type
machine, it takes a lot of nerve for
a team like the Sox to play the hit-and-run
game against a pitcher go
ing as good as Boy Mitchell was yes
terday afternoon. Especially with
two men on, none out, Buck Weaver
at bat and only three runs needed
There are circumstances where the
hit and run would have been the
proper caper. If Hal Chase, who is a
bear at the swat and scoot game,
had been the batter, it would have
been something else again. But
Weaver is an easy man for right
handers with control since he started
swinging from the off side of the
plate. Buck will swipe at anything
that isn't pitched out of the park.
Here's iiow the stunt worked yester
day: Bodie and Bean had singled in the
fourth with none out and the Sox
were only three runs behind. Weaver
swung a couple of fouls and then
