B01H FIGHTERS TALK
BY JAMES JEFFRIES.
"I lost my fight this afternoon,
but did not have the snap of
youth I used to have. I believ?
ed in my own heart that all the
old time dash was there, but
when I started to execute, the
speed and youthful stamina
were lacking. The things I used
to ''o were impossible. Six
years ago the result would have
been different, but now?well.
I guess the public will let me
alone after this."
BY JACK JOHNSON.
"I won from Mr. Jeffries be?
cause I outclassed him In every
department of the fighting
game. Before I entered the ring
I was certain I would be the vic?
tor. I never changed my rr.ind
at any time. For the next few
weeks I shall play in vaudeville.
Then I shall go to my home in
Chicago to rest. I do not think
I shall fiqht for several months
because I do not know a man
who could give me a good bat?
tle. No attention will be paid to
Sam Langford challenges by
me. I do not consider he could
give me a good fight."
