Baltimorean at No Time in Danger of Losing to Calif ornian
out of a return match with Britt. which
I' had planned for Thanksgiving day.
I am in hopes that the break, as some
of the people near Britt's corner said
,it was. will prove to be of a slight
' nsture. so that I can get a chance to !
.redeem myself with the public in the I
.rear future, and then g^et the one match!
that I have been after since I made
Joe Gans lie down and say sufficient
at Goldfield. Xev.. after chasing Wm
tor 2 hours and 4S minutes.
I thir.k that public opinion all <*ver
;he United States is leaning toward an
tfther Xelson-Gans Kpht to come off
and settle for once and all the light
weight championship of the world.
Before my fight with Gans I was
somewhat in doubt as to the result, but
since I stood under h'.s onslaughts for
4* rounds and was forcing him to run
for all he was worth to save himself
ur/iil he quit under-fire and claimed a
foiil. .there is no longer any question
In my rn'.nd that I can beat him.
All I want 5s another chance to fight
Gans to prove both to him and to the
' public that I am his superior as a
fighter. I am willing to meet Gans at
any place. California or Nevada, San
Frsncisco preferred, as long as we have
an honest referee and fight at the light
weight limit.
Instead of the customary preliminary
as at most fights there was some sing
ir.fr by "That Quartet." which proved
very popular with the spectators. The
customary challenges were read at the
ringside. George Memsic and myself
were* present and Packey McFarland of
Chicago, the coming fghter who has
been doing g wit; 'good work back east,
wired a challenge.
By the way, I will give an account of
his record up to date: Thirty-nine
fight*. SS won by the knockout route
and four on decisions. Think he Is
worthy of notice? Just mark my word
. and remember the name.
There were many things out of tlie
ordinary that came off at the fight yes
terday/ Some persons had counter
felted .1,000 bleacher seat tickets and
. disposed most of them before three of
the "peddiers" were pinched and
lodged in jail, r
Joe Thomas, the ex-champion welter
weight, was introduced and challenged
Young Ketchel for a return match
and c $5,000 elds bet. Five minutes
•6ter Ketchel was in the ring aad ac- ,
;tpted the challenge.

Great Exhibitions
for Three Rounds
Gans Studies Jimmy's Style
Until He Has Him Safe
By Sam Berger
-The fr£.!ity\ of public approval was
clearly demonstrated yesterday when.
«b Jlmrav Britt was Introduced as the
".gamest * lad that ever entered the
* ring " the crowd cheered in perfect ac
cord, but when in the ' fifth round
."Britt was unable to continue," as a re
* suit of a broken band, there were many
at the ringside who thought that he
'" should have gone on.
The fight for three rounds was a
beautiful exhibition of the raanly art.
" Tn the opening round, when Britt
planted a terrific left hook on Gans"
head, staggering Joe, there was many
"a colored rooter at the ringside so
. pale It was hard to. distinguish him
from the whites. In the second and
third rounds Gans forced Jiramy
around the ring. leading lightly with.
"his left and holding his right poised
for action. Brjtt was always there.
. #ver ready to mix. but, while Jimmy's
* blows came with terrific speed. Gans'
cleverness enabled him to avoid them
'\u25a0 and he would retaliate by sending his
* right across to the jaw with wonder
fa 1 • accuracy. He raised a lump on
Britt's eye in the second round aad
"kept shooting an occasional one on
. the damaged optic Britt fought back
. detpnninetfiy and landed several hard
. hooks' to- the~body which seemed to
* hurt, the colored man. Gans continued
-.to study Jimmy's style until the third
round, and then his countenance de
\u25a0 noted that he fell he he-Id Britt safe.
The end csnv after the bell signaled
the end of the fifth round. 'when Britt,
In his corner, though groaning In
cgony," begged to be allowed to con
(tinue* Willie Britt was more than a.
manager, however; he was a- brother,
and seeing the frultlessness of having
JJmmy cut to pieces, signaled defeat
by -tossing- op the sponge. That he
did the proper thing cannot be de
nied by any one who can place him
, self Irs a similar position.
Gar.s showed himself to be a finished
'student of the manly art. Cool, self
possessed, with his brain and body
"working in perfect unison, his boxing!
was a treat to any one'with a scientific i
':' know! edge of the game. He also !m- j
preseed the rpectators by lifs gentle- \u25a0
manly bearing In the ring.
Britt showed" the same old spirit.:
c The- boy who has given more exhi
bitions of courage than any fighter |
in the ring never quailed under fire, j
Kb was always trying, desperately at i
tlxcee, but always trying-, and though!
«t would have pleased the crowd tojsee
either man take the count, it must be
admitted that the lamentable accident
was alone to blame.
The representative crowd presented
a great sight. Before the figrht "That
Quartet" sang into a hurricane of ap
plause. Houdini. the Handcuff "King,
encountered as little trouble getting
into a box seat as he has getting out
of straitjackets aad handcuSEs. Tex
Rickard walked around the ring-side
offering any kind of money that Gan*
would win, and Nat Goodwin and
Siesrie Fried Sander also had some "joy"
Britt Outclassed
From First Punch
Fighter of Boxer Style Has
No Chance With Gans
By Billy Nolan
Jimmie Britt was outclassed from ;
the first punch and never did have a j
chance, and more than ever strength- '
ened my argument that no boxer |
fighter of the type has any license to
defeat Joe Gans. This battle has more :
than proved how lucky Jimmy Britt '
was to catch the Battler in poor condi
tion and outlast him. V.'hat a con
trast the Nelson-Gans battle alongside
of this contest at the ball park — Nelson
forcing the colored boy from one side
of the ring to the other and never
giving him a chance to parry or *par.
Right today I am ready and willing
to sign the Dane with Gans in a finish
contest and make It winner take all,
this battle to take place in Nevada,
where we are now offered a good purse.
One stipulation I will ask for is that
the battle take place cot sooner than
Thanksgiving day.
As to the accident. I do not think
Britt quit, as he "has always proved
himself game and Is entitled to the
benefit of the doubt. However, I firm
ly think it was a lucky thins for Britt,
as he never had a chance to get first
money, as the Baltimorean toyed with
him all the way and practically had
Britt well In hand any time he decided
to end this uneven battlf.
All I have to say 13 that "Wlllus Britt
alone is the one that Jimmie should
thank for getting him that lucky match
with Nelson.
Defeat of Britt
Due to Accident
Managing Brother Thinks He
Had Champion Winded
By Willus Britt
Up to the time when Jimmy broke
his hand in the fourth round be had
a clear lead, and I feel confident that
he would have defeated Gans decisively.
He had Gans winded and would have
beaten him down eventually had he not
met with this Injury. Jimmy wanted
to continue after the fifth round, but
his seconds insisted that he had no
chance with a crippled arm. It would
have been foolish to allow him to go
on under the handicap, which would
have resulted in his being knocked out.
To shew that we still believe that
Jimmy has a chance to defeat Gans, we
will fight Gar.s again and allow our end
of the purse to go to charity, as well
as making a substantial side bet.
Physicians Differ as to
Injury to Britt's Wrist
Fighter Leaves the Ring Before Dr.
McQcttlgan's Arrival
VThen Britt was taken to hie dress
ing room on the second floor of the
clubhouse, Drs. Sullivan, Apple, fHlis
and Rosencranx examined his injured
hand. The first three agreed that the
boxer was suffering from a fracture of
the lower end of the ulna, a small bone
in the wrist. Rosencranz, however, as
serted emphatically that the bone was
not fractured, but bruised. Rosencranz
is Gans' physician and made the ex
amination at the request of the colored
An Immense crowd waited at the
door of the clubhouse. Announcer Billy
Jordan called for Dr. Charles D. Mc-
Gettigan, as Promoter Gleason and
Gans and hie manager were anxious to
have this physician's opinion. Before
Dr. McGettlgan arrived, Britt jumped
into a big red automobile and was
whirled away to his brother's home In
Buchanan street. When Dr. ilcGetti
gan put in en appearance he was told
that Britt had gone Into the front office.
The physician hurried thither, but
learned that Britt had left the grounds.
An effort was made by newspaper
men to have tbe arm examined by
reputable physicians after Britt left the
ring, but he refused to permit of an
examination on the ground that enough
persons had seen the Injury. Britt did
cot leave the Injured member In the
splints long, but had it encased in a
plaster cast, thus effectively concealing
any possible Injury. The cast was ap
plied by Dr. John- F. Sullivan. The In
jured member showed no signs of
swelling, which was considered pe
Britt was especially solicitous that
no Inquiry be made of Dr. McGettigan.
who ranks with the best surgeons In
the city.
Gans' Share of Receipts Is
$16,156— Britt Gets $10,770
Less Than $9,000 fs Left for the
Expenses of Fight Promoters J
The receipts of the Gans-Britt fight,
while large, fell short of the estimate
of the promoter, Manager Jack Glea
son. "Hie receipts at the gate totaled
j $35,903. The fighters took the lion's
! share of this, as they received 75 per
| cent, or J25.927.25. This was in turn
j divided, €0 per cent to the winner and
40 per cent to the loser. Gans" share
of the purse was $16,156.35. while Britt
took $10,770.90 to salve his injured
feelings. , .;. ,
The promoter is In a fair way to lose
some money on the venture, a« he has
only $8,975.75 with which to pay the
; many expenses: Incurred fin. presenting

Scenes at the Ringside, Sketched by Cartoonist Ewer
Statements by Principals and Referee
I am very sorry that the contest ended as it did, for I would
have liked to put over the "knockout punch which I .had ready to
deliver. The fight certainly would have ended in the. next round, as
Britt was at my mercy. I began to measure, him after the second
round and could have knocked him out at any time, but I did. not want
to take any chances and went at my work systematically.
The best punch that Britt hit me was that left to the jaw in the
first round. There was a lot of force behind it and I felt it for a couple
of minutes. His body blows did not disturb me ir. the' least. I blocked
nearly all of them and the ones that did land had no force.
Britt is an easier man to beat than Kid Herman, for the reason
that he can not punch hard. Ido not care about censuring him, but I
will admit that I was very much disappointed and displeased at his
action. I wanted to finish the job that I had started so well. —
I broke my left hand in the fourth round, when it came into contact
with Gans' elbow after I had started a hard swing for the stomach.
I wanted to keep on fighting, but Spider Kelly, ray chief second,
would not permit me to do so, 'saying that I might injure myself per
I don't care what any of them say — I was winning. I can beat
Gans any time I start against him. Iwas punishing him on the body
with my rights and lefts and his blows did not affect me. I will fight
him at any time he wants, for I am more confident now than ever that
lam his master in the ring. Of course, I am sorry at the unfortunate
outcome, but it can not be helped. Had I been allowed, I would
have kept right on fighting, as I always do.
Just . as soon ; as it can be arranged, I . will take on Gans again
and show the public that I can beat him. I am-itill in the fighting
business and will remain there while there is a chance to get a match—
Gans simply outclassed Britt and the native, son did not have a
chance at any stage of the game. I heard something crack in the
fourth round, after Gans had blocked a left swing to the body with
his elbow. Now, Ido not want to go on record as saying that Britt
did break his hand then. He said nothing to me and L was very much
surprised when, before the gong sounded for the sixth round, he an
nounced that \u25a0he had injured himself.
I believe that Gans is the most scientific and I the greatest all
around fighter in the ring today. He has everything that a boxer
needs. He can hit, block, sidestep and measure his man with apparent
ease, and Britt never did figure to hurt him. , At that, I believe that
Jimmy made some of those body blows of his count ; but as soon as
Gans had taken his measure m that second round there was nothing to it.
After that time Gans blocked everything that Britt sent in and was
waiting for a chance to score a knockout.— JACK WELSH.
