H j fered by French Club.
B Paris, Dec. 5. BUly Papke, tho
H American middleweight, clinched too
H tjtlo of middleweight champion of
H Franco, and, according to tho French
boxing commission, tho world's titlo,
H when he battered Goorgo Bernard in-
H to submission in six rounds or a
H scheduled 20-round battle here last
1 nichl. The flcht ended as the pong1
H for the seventh round started Bor-
B nard was nnablo to leave his corner
H Ho was in a stato of physical col-
H . lapse from the beating he rcceivod
H , 8 in the fifth and sixth rounds, and his
H seconds tossed tho sponge into the,.
fl ' I rlnS-
H , The battle was for a big purse and
H I I a gold belt inlaid with ivory, which
B the French commission bad ordered
K c made and which typifies the world's
B t I championship.
H Up to the fifth round Pnpkc seem-
H ed to be fighting "under wraps." Ho
H I -was introduced as tho world's cham-
H plon middleweight and Bernard was
Hj introduced as Franco's last hope.
H1 : Neithor fought like hopes or chani-
H , pions, but Papko's work in the fifth
H . -4 and sixth rounds showed that he had
ft I j been wearing Bernard out
H i Papke unbundlod a bewildering as-
H I ! Gortment of punches in the fifth, and
Btt when the gong sounded Bernard was
HflLK j a beaten man. He went to his corner
Xl worried, while Papko smiled and wav-
ij ed to the crowd. Papke started to
rush in the sixth. Ho was on top
of Bernard from the sound of tho
hell and sent the Frenchman spin-
H J ning through the ropes with a right
H r I Jolts to the jaw. Bernard took the
H j count of nine and got up, only to be
H f beaten back to the ropes by Papko's
H j . rushes. Bernard tried to fight back
H ' ' and then stalled, hoping to last tho
H round out. Papke measured him and
H ' " 4 again sent his right to tho jaw and
H the Frenchman, sank In a heap on
H J the floor. He was knocked out cold,
n1 bat tho gong sounded as nine was
Hi i counted and his seconds hurried him

Vpvl over him, hut he rras unable to re-

Papke's victory was wildly cheered
and the ivory belt was prcocnted to
him in the ring by the president of

H According to one of the St. Louis pa-

months. Only a short time ago Lew

In rapid succession and finally an

has had a long rest and will try

Controversy Is Being
Fiercely Waged in
A controversy as to what consti
tutes a point in a boxing match is
being fiercely waged in Australia.
Ever since Referoe Snowy Baker gave
that much disputed decision to Sam
McVey over Sam Langford laBt De
cember there has been considerable
dissatisfaction with tho system used
in deciding tho winners of bouts. Re
cent decisions have caused still more
discontent and have resulted in a
demand for a change in the style of
Judging the matches.
It Is now proposed to adopt the
method of having two judges outside
the ring to collaborate with the ref
eree. It Is not that the honesty of
the third man in the ring has been
questioned. But it is pointed out he
Is necessarily so taken up with oth
er actions and thoughts that ho has
not the opportunity to lecop track of
the points scored.
So far Hugh Mcintosh, who pro
motes practically all the big matches
in Australia, has not given, his con
sent. It is his opinion that the fault
is with the flght-golng public, which
needs to be educated in how to ap
preciate the work of the boxers.
fcTbe whole trouble," says Mcin
tosh, "Is that spectators overlook what
has passed In the early rounds and
allow their mind to dwoll on what
happens toward tho end of a contest
It is stipulated that a contest is to
bo the best out of 20 rounds. There
fore, If one contestant has the bet
ter of 11 rounds he must be the
winner, provided there is no knock
out If a refereo were to givo tho
decision on what happens in the clos
ing rounds boxing would be a farce
The men would simply stall until
near the end and then do all their
fighting in tho last few rounds."
HoTTevor, it is contended that it
first becomes necessary to be able to
pick the winner of each round be
fore treating upon the contest as a
whole In order to do this a more
clear understanding of each individ
ual point is necessary. It is just here
that the greatest room for dispute
arises. In order to settle this ques
tion it is proposed to call a confer
ence of the leading promoters, ref
erees and sporting writers and draw
up a set of rules denning the value
of each point.
Now that so many schemes for im
proving boxing aTe under way, it
would be an excellent idea of some
thing in this direction were put in
practice. The widely different opin
ions as published in the dally pa
pers after each contest Is the best
evidence that the writers form their
opinions by following no definite
The Marquis of Queensberry rules
are by no means comprehensive
enough to cover the point Accord
ing to the amateur code, which Is
slightly more definite, points shall
be scored for clean hits with the
knuckles of the glove This is the
generally accepted idea and is well
enough as far as it goes. But there
is no distinction made in the qual
ity of the blows, whether they are
light or heavy or how delivered! Ap
parently there are a great many who
look upon all blows as having equal
value But this method is by no
means logical and does not tend to
encourage scientific boxing.
It is obvious that a left jab should
not havo the same value as an accu
rately delivered right cioss or up
percut A jab is the easiest of all
blows to deliver. The boxer using It
takes less chance of receiving a coun
ter than when using any other form
of attack. Therefore it Is only logi
cal to assume that a left hand blow
should count less than one delivered
with tho right.
Another thing often overlooked Is a
boxer's skill in defensive operations
For instance, to duck a hard swing
is not only a elevet maneuver, but
takes much of the strength from tho
one who misses, The man on the de
fensive not only saves himself from
injury, but even enhances his posi
tion. He should be credited with a
point In his favor. But according
to the view taken by many, the man
who missed Is credited with a point
for his aggressiveness, while the one
who ducked actually loses ground
Aggressiveness should count largely
In a boxer's favor, without doubt. A
little exercise of common sense should
enable one to differentiate between
"stalling" and a defensive move ex
ecuted when the occasion calls for
such procedure.
A point to be taken Into account
Is the effect of a blow on the recipi
ent. There are some boxers who can
take a terrific punch on tho chin and
not show any effect. There are oth
ers bo constructed they are stagger
od by a blow much lighter in weight.
It Is a question that will bear dis
cussion whether only the force In
the boxer's punch landed should be
taken Into account In scoring points
regardless of Its effect on the one
who receives It
It a boxing match Is looked upon
merely as a scientific exhibition and
not as a prize fight, It would seem
that the iron Jawed pugilist should
receive a great deal less credit for
his ability to absorb punlshmont than
Is generally tho case.
Gibbons Clever but Un
able to Land an Ef
fective Punch.
New York, Dec 5 Eddie McGoor
ty of OBhliosh won by a fair margin
over Mike Gibbons of St Paul In their
widely advertised middleweight bat
tle before a packed house In Madi
son Square garden last night
McGoorty won because ho did all
the forcing and made what little fight
there was to the affair. The 12,000
fans who packed tho old garden from
pit to dome wero Badly disappointed
with the tame milling dished up by
the wlndup fighters and hooted them,
particularly Gibbons, from the third
round on, at times begging them to
got busy and do a little fighting.
Gjbbons seemed to know before he
started that he had tackled a job
that was too lough for him in meet
ing one of the contnry's very best
mlddlewelghts He did not lash out
with a single blow in the first round
and seldom took the offensive there
after. Occasionally he opened up for
a moment or so when tho crowd de
manded action, but they were only
flashes In the pan.
Mike did manage to draw a little
claret from the McGoorty nose and to
give Eddie a bump ovpr one eye, but
he did not lantl a punch that even
shook up the Oshkosh fighter
McGoorty Did His Best,
McGoorty did his best to make a
fight of it. He was trying all tho
time, but Gibbons was steadily on tho
back trail, and so clover was his de
fense that it was mighty hard work
for Eddie to got home with solid
punches. " He did considerable dam
ngo at that. He had .Mike bleeding In
the last few rounds, gave him a mouso
over one oye and had him looking
weary and faded when the ten rounds
of milling were over
It got so bad at one stage of the
encounter that after the men had
loosened up for a second and landed a
couple of stinging punches apiece,
Referee Billy Job said:
"Come on, boys, fight like that"
But Mike got scared again and
there was nothing more doing
The better man won, of that there
is no question. Gibbons Is not big
enough and strong enough to cope
with the powerful McGoorty. Michael
will never bo middleweight champion
unless he packs on a few more pounds
of muscle.
Gibbons is a great boxer with a
defense that Is hard to penetrate and
an offense that will daze welter
weights, but that lets him out. The
good middlewelghts are too tough for
him to monkey with.
Bout a Poor One.
McGoort missed repeatedly, but on
the whole made an excellent showing
With the other fellow covering up like
a turtle, he had little chance to show
the caliber of his attack. Mike shun
ned Eddie's dreaded loft hook like a
pestilence, and McGoorty did not get
it over in the right way once. during
the battle. If ho had Mike probably
would have taken a ten-second nap
It was a very poor fight for the
money It drew, some 30,000, and New
York fans will hardly take a chance
like that asain The clever fellows of
the Gibbons typo are too lazy in short
fights to make It worth while
As early as 7 o'clock the streets ap
proaching the Garden began respond
ing to the tramp of many feet Bunch
os of derby hats popped suddenly from
the subway manholes at Twenty-third

along Broadway, dumped cargoes of
men within two blocks of the Garden,
while thousands of others camo came
trooping out of the shadows beyond
Fourth avenue and Broadway from the

struggling at the doors, but the po
licemen kept everybody In motion and
gradually the five and ten dollar goats
were separated from the two dollar

some respects, but the crowds which

Billy Papke, recognlzod middle
weight champion of tho world by
French and English boxing authori
ties, Is in Europe taking his profes
sion seriously, a little more than a
year ago he was thought to be through
with the sport, as he went down to
defeat In several bouts, ire has re
covered from his slump and is now
back to the position he occupied when
he struggled for high honors with the
late Stanley Ketchel. He has re
gained his reputation In England and
.France by whipping the champions
It will bo some time before Papke
returns to the states He has sev
eral Important matches In view, which
probably will be closed within a short
time. Reports from London say he
has at least three bouts in sight and
It Is likely ho will be kept over there
until long after the holidays.
One of the first bouts Papke prob
ably will have is with Jim Sullivan,
I former British champion. Sullivan
was tho first man the Kcwanee boxer'
trimmed when he first appeared in
England. There was no fluke about
his victory, as he knocked out the
Briton after handing him a severe
lacing. This gave Papke the title of
British champion. The defeat dis
heartened Sullivan somewhat, as later
he was beaten by Jack Harrison, alse

from his two unexpected trouncings,
Is now seeking to regain his laurels
as middleweight champion of Eng

with Papke are under way and it is
likely the pair will be re-matched be

ing strenuously for some time, ac
cording to reportB, and believes lie
can conquer the American.
Papke will probably accept the
match as it is wired that he intends,
to fight as often as possible. He de

wasted when he lost ambition and al
lowed a lot of superfluous weight to
Papke is not only a middleweight.
He is also battling In the heavyweight
division and the chances are that he
may seek to win the championship. He
has no trouble in getting to the 158
pound notch and can defend his hon
ors in that class. He is anxioUB to
keep himself busy and therefore Is
willing to go out of his ranks to find
action and work. Bombardier Wella

England and Papke is eager to sign

ositions for matches in this country
and will soon accept some of them.
