Johnson op Willard, Which?
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.
Parjs is preparing for the racing
