1911 Georges Carpentier defeated
Toung Joseph in 10 rounds at London.
The great French boxer was then a
lightweight, although a six-footer in
altitude, and he easily defeated the
Hebrew battler, who stood only 6 feet
inches. It was while tralnine for
this bout that Carpentier had his first
meeting with Bombardier Wells. The
latter offered to .spar with the French
man at his camp, and the bout soon
developed into the real article. The
Bombardier was not only 2 Inches tall
er than Georges, but he was about 50
pounds heavier, and - about 6 years
older and more experienced. . In spite
of this disparity the slender Frenoh
kid showed a lot of skill and grit, but
the Bombardier put over several nasty
blows which were not at, all to Car
pentler's liking. Descams, Car pen
tier's manager, was even more peevish
about the way ells had waded into
his man in 'a friendly sparring match,
and then and there the two French
men planned to" get "revanche." And
