COMMISSION TO LIFT BAN ON BEMPSEV'WILLS MEETING _ x____•_ LABOR DAY DATE PROPOSED Promoter Changes Mind and Enters Bidding foi Much Discussed Match for Title. 7 he proposed bout between Jack Dempsey and Harry Wills for the be'.vy weight championship of the world yesterday was put squarely up to the New York State Athletic Com mission Prank Coultry, manager or Madison Square Garden appeared be fore that body at its regular weekly meeting and, in behalf of Tox Rickard asked that the ban on the bout be litt ed in order that the promoter might proceed with plans to hold it in this city on Labor Day. The commission gave an attentive ear to the proposal and tlK>n deferred action, probably un til next week. The entrance of Rickard into the list of those who would stage the bout brings the number of would-be promot ers of the contest to three and also marks a distinct change of heart on Rickard’s part. Several months ngo Rickard announced that ho would not consider the promotion of a Dempsey Wills bout. Yesterday he said that his friends had persuaded him to change his mind. Rickard also an nouneed that he had been in touch with Jack Kearns and that the cham pion’s manager had requested him to use his influence to have the edict which barred the holding of the bout in this State annuled . Simon Flaherty, who at the present time controls the Queensboro A. C., is known to be anxious to conduct the bout and is reported as being willing to erect a stadium seating approximate ly 150.000 persons in Long Island City if his bid Is accepted.. Benjamin Block the turfman and his partner, Peter J. Maloney, brokers at 74 Broadway who had been reported as Interested m stadium project, yesterday issued a statement in which they declared the report without foundation and denied anv interest whatever in the matter. O’ROURKE RENEWS OFFER The third promoter who has express ed a willingness to hold the bout Is Tom O’Rourke of the Polo Grounds A C. O’Rourke has renewed an offer to Dempsey made earlier In the year for two championship bouts to be held at. the Polo Grounds. The first to he with an opponent and at a date to be select ed later and the second to be with Wills on or about Labor Day. All three promoters are understood to have reached an agreement with Mullins for Will’s services and Demp sey and Kearns have from time to time emphnsized their willingness to do business wherever and whenever the terms were to their liking. Rickard, while discussing the bout yesterday said that the Yankee Start ium would Ik* avnliable in case it was possible to Irold it in New York Stale while Boyle’s Thirty Acres in Jerse. City would he available in case it be c;vme necessary to take the bout out of the Jurisdiction of New York State. There probably has been more dis mission and less action about the pro posed Dempsey-Wills contest than In any other bout in the history of the sport. One great reason for this, of course, has been that Wills 1s a Negro and that all tlrose concerned hesitated to definitely arrange the contest for fear of interference from some govern mental authority However. William Muldoon Chairman of the New York 8‘.atc boxing body, last June accepted a challenge for a bout with Dempsey from Wills and a deposit of $2,500 from Wills’s manager,, Paddy Mullins guaranteeing good faith. Muldoou then insisted that the champion ac cept the challenge within six months under tin-cat of suspension if he fail led to do so. ACTION IS REVIVED. Dempsey signed, thus causing great 'exc’tement and inciting various offers from boxing promoters at previously unheard-of figures.. There the matter ended. The whole affair apparently was well on the way toward being for gotten when O.-.ck sud>*-?nly set the hall rolling again by announcing that the bout was on and would be hold in the metroplitan district on Labor Pay Mullins followed Kearns’s announce | ment with a letter to the Boxing Com mission demanding to know why 'Will should not be permitted to box Demp se.v and this letter was also discussed but not acted upon, at yesterday’s meeting of the commission. With Rickard entering the field and requesting permission to stage the bout, with Flaherty expressing a will ingness to build a gigantic stadium to house it, O’Rourke repeating bis off er and Mullins demanding a chance for Wills, it looks as if the commis sion will he forced to take definite action in the matter. Definite action must support Chairmnn IMuldoon’s ru. ing against the holding of the bout bere or it must rescind that ruling and sanction the bout. Chairman Muhioon has said that his attitude toward the bout has not changed in the least. Whether that is true of the remainder of the commission and of the new lie ensing body probably will be known afrer next Tuesday's meeting. (New York Times, May 23, 1923.) V. N. I. I.
