ALBTTQUEEQUE CITIZEN. ?agk ranicm. LANGFORD MUST win in six ROUNDS If He Doesn't the Game Fighter Will Put the i Black Man Down ' and Out i New York, Aug. 2S. Had Stanley Ketch-1 and Sam Lungforrt been mutch''. I six months ago, the black man undoubtedly would hiive been a prohibitive favorite In the betting. Today opinions have chanted and when these two do finally phake hands, it will be found there will be hut little difference in the odds diner way. And this i the face of KetchelH rather In different showing against Papke a month or more ago. If either man is a firm favorite over the other, It will be because his supporters have larger bankrolls a mere preponderance of anoney. Hegardless of how a buttle between them might result, today, It looks like an even money proposition and take your pick. Lang fords" ad lirers smile when a fight between them is mentioned; look wise, nod the head knowingly and put up two fing ers, sometimes three. This means they tigure Sam to win two or per haps three rounds. If you ask a Ket Chel man what he thinks of It he will say: "Ketch is too game for him. He'll break Langford'a heart before they have gone very far." There is one p itnt upon which all sides agree; if Langford can't win in six rounds or less, he'll be worse than a ten to one shot. Even Sam's strongest admirers say ho will have to win In a hurry If at all. It's rather a hard one to pick and will keep the boys guessing for true. tluM About l:quul. It is when you compare the men carefully that it is so hard Jo say who Is the better man. Everything consid ered, they are about as nar equal as two men could be before the fight. The battle itself may tell a different story. This is the way many of the closer students dope it out. LaiigTord is the trickie r and more scientillc. Ketchel is faster and presumably the gamer. The latter statement Is based on Langrord's bouts with Jack John son and Joe Jeanette. With Jcanettc at Lawrence, Mass., he stopped in six rounds when he could have continued. Nobody ever heard of Ketchel chuck ing it while he was conscious. With Johnson at Chelsea, Sam didn't stop but he didn't give evidence that he possessed that "bull-dog tenacity" the descriptive writers are so fond of featuring every time they wish to make plain that a man Is couraseous. In most of his other bouts, Lang ford SO far outclassed his opponents bis gameness was not put to the acid test. As regards the other important char acteristics that go to make up the classy lighter, there appeurs to be but little difference between Ketchel and Langford. ISoth are hitters of the most trrific type. Either can win with one punch tr It reaches a vul-! nerable spot. Both weigh the same. Doth are powerful and can absorb a world of punishment. Either can take a punch without wincing that would send the ordinary man to the land of nod. In point of experience, each has been fighting about gi ven years. Barring a lucky punch on cither side, they should put up as wicked a fight as has been witnessed in this section since the famous Lavigne-Walcott battle at Maspeth fourteen years ago. In fact. It re minds tin boys of that bout in many respects, Pretty nearly every time a Ketchel -Langford contest is men tioned somebody will cut In with a remark to that effect. An English right. The Driscoll-Moran bout, while it should result In one of the prettiest contests imaginable, means much more to the English sportsmen than it does to the fans on this side, as certain American fight promoters would have found out to their sorrow had their bids for the fight been ac cepted. One promoter offered $15,000 and It Is stated on excellent authority another one tendered $20,000. Had the latter's bid been accepted. he would have had an enormous loss staring him In the face. A fight In this country between Drlscoll and Moran wouldn't have drawn twenty thousand at the gate or within a mile of it, even If held under the most auspicious conditions. In an Inter national match wherein one of the contestants is an American, there Is a certain element of pride or rivalry or patriotism or something that ia at tractive and makes it draw well at : gate, but a fight In this country l. tween two foreigners, nevalre. The best e vidence they wouldn't draw the larger figure Is shown by the fact that neither Moran or Drlscoll and both are very popular in this country, ever draw that much when pitted against the best boys America could trot out. ijo where would two Englishmen get off? Wow, wow, barked the Jack rabbit. Only once did either Moran or Drlscoll draw anywhere near a banner gate. The latter and Abe At tell pulled in fifteen thousand and then it had everything In its favor. The fight had been discussed in the papers for weeks; It was held in the' heart of Xew York City and in onej of the prettiest and most finely ap- pointed club-houses the eye cver rested upon. It's a good Job for the! American promoters they didn't grab, the coining bout at the figures quoted. ' Two in tlic rain.lv. I It is seldom one family turns out I two such capable boxers as Abe audi .Monte Attell. When Monte was beaten by Owen Moran in this elty upon the Englishman's first visit to this country, it was thought he' wouldn't do. He was so badly out classed there didn't appear to be much hope for him. But he kept on plug ging away, took his beating like a little major when they came along and gradually worked his way to the top of the heap. Today, Xew Yorkers are anxious to see him perform against Mcttovein. foster. Goldman, Wagner or any of the little Eastern cracks and he is sure of a good house the first thin- he starts in the east. His latest victory over Percy Cove, the Human Slat, was some performance. When C"Vi- was fighting hereabouts he al ways had a hard time getting on matches. Tln scorned to be afraid of him und the fact that Jimmy l)e For est and his confrere Hen Rosenthal, stood ready at all times to back him for a thousand bills in real money: against anybody his weight, didn't J help matters along any. Looks like Monte has a great chance of winning the bantam championship. Tlio lUggx-st Purs. About every twenty minutes a fresh offer for the proposed Jeffries-Johnson contest Is announced, Jeff will not return from Europe until October 1st and until he does, nothing definite can be done. When It comes to pick the battle-ground he will have a lot to say. Johnson may be champion ac cording to ring usage, but public sen timent is with Jeffries and so long as he Is half way fair In his demands, he will have the support of the sporting clans. At this writing, California and Nevada have the Jump on the other competitors. Finish contests have been held In both states and that is what the public wants to see If Jef fries and Johnson come together, forty-five rounds or more. Coffroth Is hot after the bout for his Colma arena and will no doubt prove a stub born contender when the time for the real bidding is at hand. The bids so far made public impress one as being "stall" bids. Like when there Is a newspaper voting contest for the handsomest fireman or the most dar ing motor-man. The supporters of the contenders hold back their cou pons until the last day, then dump them on a truck and send in about thirty tons to the contest editor. The bona fide bidding for the fight hasn't started. When Coffroth, McCarey, Mcintosh, Nevada and a few others start In earnest, there will be some fun. t'ndoubtedly the largest purse ever given for a tight. Squirt's (jults Game. Word conns from Australia that Boshtei Bill has not retired from the game but has bought a farm at Tam werth. He will divide his time be tweeen farming and fighting. Squires certainly had about as tough a streak of luck as ever befell a fighter. From the time he first left Australia, he lost five In a row and all knockouts. Three to Tommy I!urn and one each to Jack Sullivan and Jim Flynn. The Austra lians thought he was the goods and considered him champion of their country. The following paragraph was penned by a Sydney scribe: "Bill first saw light in Narrabra, New South Wales, a town where I asi told you have only to mention fight to be ac commodated, without the merest sug gestion of preliminary fuss regarding side wagers, purses or whacking the gate. When Bill grew up he assisted his father in the carrying business and on those occasions, the respon sible position of c-ook was the more important of many filled by him. Young Squires' 'dampers' anil "Johnny Cakes' were the talk of the rural folk living miles beyond the limits of the Narrahri district and It seemed quite probable that Bill might have devel oped into a flourishing banker had he been able to knuckle down to such a- ns it appears to him humdrum existence. Subsequently the lad found profitable and muscle-making employment in sleeper getting, shear ing and mivvylng. and to that rough work he attributes his present excel lent health and great strength." The abov.- Was written Just before Bill fought Burns.
