A comparison of tho ring records of Jack Johnson and Jess Willard, who are scheduled to meet in battle for the world'3 championship March G, shows marked advantage of title holder over tho challenger in actual glove cam paigning. Johnson began his pugilis tic career In 1901 and has figured in seventy-eight bouts, for a total of 698 rounds. During this stretch of years tho negro lias won twonty-flvo contests by knockouts, and twenty-seven by de cisions. He also participated In clovon no decision matohes and soven draw bouts. In addition Johnson has won two battles as the result ot his oppo nont's fouls: lost one on his own foul: ono by a knockout and three by adverse declslouu by referees. Willard In his four years In the ring has met twcntv-ninc opponents, these bnttlos totaling 205 rounds. His recordB includes seventeen victories by knockouts and five decisions. Three no decision, one draw, one bout lost on a foul and two by being outpointed complete WHIiird's ring caroor. Ac ocrdlng to these tabulations, Willnrd's ring percentage of victorios in 75.9 to Johnson's G9.2, and his percentage of knockouts Is 58,G to tho chimpiou's In tho class of opponents-met, how over, Johnson has decidedly tho bet ter record. Becauso of his lengthy ring career the names of a majority of the leading heavyweights of tho past ten years arc found linked with his in the annals of the sport. Almost without exception these same pugilists had been defeated or had retired from active boxing circles before tho advent of Willard. His principal bouts have been against other whito hopes who have sprung into prominence within the past two or three years. Against those met. Willnrd's work has bcon mcdicoro. He fought ton round no doclsion bouts with Arthur Polkoy and Luther McCarthy in Now York City; lost a twenty round bout on points to Gunboat Smith in San Francisco and outpointed Carl Morris in a ten-round match in New York.
