Gleason and Richard Should Name Battle Ground at Once
Present Dilatory Tactics Only Serve To
Increase Disgust of Fans
NOW thar Nelson and Wolgast have settled their long standing dispute and
Moran and Murphy have had their little argument, the fans arc naturally
turning their attention to Jeffries and Johnson again. It's too bad for
iheir sake, for the sake of the promoters and for the sake of the fighters;
ihaj Messrs. Rickard and Gleason can not come to some definite under
sranding and name a battle ground for this, the greatest of all. fights. The
ihing has been hanging for the last three months, and. apparently, the pro-
Jiiotrrs stand just abnur where they started when the bids were opened. :
Of course, everybody will admit that it's a grigantic undertaking and one
i]iat requires plenty of thought and consideration. It's a big $101,000 deal to
bozin with and probably several more thousands of additional dollars to finish
with. Still, they have had three months in which to thresh the details out aud
came the battle ground. Rut It is still unnamed.
It is a bard matter to place the blame for this uncalled for 'delay, but
ei-orybody must admit that somebody is to blame. If the tardiness of the men
behind the great attraction has not injured the card thus far, it is only a
manor of -a short time when it will have its effect. Therefore, it behooves
iM^asou and Rickard to lose no time in reaching an understanding. The
sporting world wants to know and wants to know quickly.
If GJeason and Rkkard care to stage this mill in San Francisco the way
is. paved for them. Supervisor John L. Hergert. the power behind the local
snorting throne, has lifted th*» barrier which stood in the way of Rickard.
All is in readiness so far as the law is concerned. The city ordinance will be
p mended so that the fight may be a 45 round affair. There will be no inter
ferenoe from the municipal officials. Rickard has been told that, and
apparently he is satisfied that the official promise will be kept.
The permit for pulling off the great contest can also be easily transferred.
Nobody is standing in thp way of the promoters there. Jim Griffin, the man
lio has the good fortune to claim the July permit, has gladly consented to
fitep aside durinp; that particular month so that Gleason and Rickard may
Mage their attraction. Of course. Griffin will demand his compensation, but
th<-re should b<> no objection on that score, for the reason that this privilege
it w*»n worth several thousand dollars.
What inducements the outside towns, such as Richmond, have , offered
remain to be shown later. Richmond is flushed with success after the Nelson
Wolgast affair. It got wide world advertising and it showed the world that it
could make good, even on short notice and confronted with unfavorable
weather conditions. It wants a chance to become even greater, and it will
make a flattering proposition to Gleason and Rickard.
There must be a "something" behind it all and this "something" probably
will not come to the surface till some sort of a quarrel starts. Every time
that there is a difference between the men connected with an aifair of the
magnitude of this one. scandal generally follows. For the good of the game
and the protection of the fighters and the promoters, it is to be hoped that no
Ecandal will make its appearance, at least till after such time as the fighters
have settled their differences once and for all.
The strange part of it all is that the fighters are the least concerned of
pny of them. Jeffries has said that he prefers California as the scene of the
conflict, but in the next breath, he says that he has nothing whatever to do
in this matter and that whatever Gleason and Rickard say must go with both
him and Johnson. The latter is still reaping a golden harvest behind the
footlights, and so long as the money keeps flowing in the burly champion is
not likely to bother his head about what is happening. ' •
The promoters have said that, they will agree upon the scene of -battle
tomorrow. Let everybody pull for them. If they pass tomorrow without
giving out something definite the chances are that a wail of disgust , will be
raised all along the line from Maine to California. Just at present the
ca&tcrn critics are doing quite a lot of hot toasting, with Gleason and Rickard
a? their subjects. This is a good warning to beware.
It will be disappointing news to the majority of the fans to learn' that
Tattling Nelson has decided to say farewell to the Thompson match and lay
for Wolgast instead. All San Francisco was looking forward to this with great
interest. Though he has lost his championship crown the Dane still cuts a
wide swath in the world of pugilism, and no matter who he may fight the
next time the battle is bound to produce world wide interest. The Dane can
bold the light fans as no other man in years has held them. i .
Nelson probably has realized that the best thing for him to do is to enjoy
that long promised long rest and then go right after Wolgast and take a final
chance of redeeming the championship which he fought so long to gain. :
He need never hope to win it back so long as he keeps riding around the
country in Pullman cars and playing one night stands with burlesque shows.
No man in the world ever trained in this way and made a success of his ring
a ffai rs. Nelson thought he could, but he was mistaken, and none of them knows
it any better right now than the same Durable Dane.
Now it's a question as to whether Wolgast will give Nelson that return
match. The new champion has never picked up any of the theatrical gold,: but
hes going in for a long whirl at it. He will stay, in that glass cage for many
a month yet if Manager Tom Jones has the least word to say about it, and
thus far Jones has very successfully directed the little fellow's affairs.
The lightweight brigade is fast developing and spreading out A few
months ago, it looked as thought Nelson would have to retire : for ' want < of -an
opponent unless he managed to force Welsh into a match. But in the mean
time a new one sprung up in the person of Wolgast, who very. daftly managed
to work a complete shift in the order of things. Now the woods are full of
near lightweight champions, all howling and eager to get a crack at; the: man
who has proved himself to be one of the ring's most sensational performers.
We never looked upon Owen Moran as a lightweight before, but now we
*re compelled to reckon with him in this class. We scarcely ever heard of
Harlem Tommy Murphy, but after the whirlwind finish' he made with: Moran
we are forced to admit that his picture must also have its place in th« gallery
of lightweight celebrities. As' for Thompson, he always has been "quite a
factor, but he's even more of a factor right now,, because/ he is on the 'ground
and hot on the trail of any and all of them." . v " .
Then there are Lew Powell and little Tommy McCarthy., Neither has. been
decisively beaten yet and till one of them is crushed he will Have a license
:<» jump right into the parade and march along with the rest of them:
McCarthy has shown himself to be a wonder, and he will be* even -more of (a
wonder the next time he starts. If he gets by Moran next month /look -out' for
him. He has the fighting material in his makeup and he is improving all the
It is still a question as to whether Sam. Langford, and" Jim -Barry will:^try
conclusions in this city this month. . Promoter ' Louis Blot, who; holds i the
key to the situation, is not altogether satisfied with his match. He, is taking
several chances, and in the event. that he can get a safer card, the chances are
that he will pass the big fellows up. ' ' i \u25a0'
\u25a0.Langford has a date to waltz 45 rounds with tearing: Jiui-Flj'nn- in Los
Angeles on the afternoon of March 17. Sam figures to win this fight, but he
also figured to beat Fly'nn in 10 rounds a few weeks ago and fell down. Then
there is a chance that the black demon may injure himself, and in this event
the engagementwith Barry, mnr.t be canceled.
Barry, in the meantime has:signed up to go 10 rounds with Gunboat Smith
before the. Oakland wheelmen next Wednesday evening. Like -Laugford. Barry
should win handily enough, but upsets in the 24 foot ring are frequent and-you
never can tell when one is about to show itself. Barry has bad hands,- and if
the>vgo:Back on him^Wednesday night there will Tic no chance of his, being
able to respond to the bell for Langford.
-^Blot-has a fine chance to get-away to a good start. The game is better in
San* Francisco right now "than it. has been at any time since the fire. All
the fanswant is an attractive card and they will willingly "contribute their
one, two and five dollar notes." Now it's up to the promoters to give them
what they are clamoring for.

day night when he faces "Gunboat"
Smith, the hard hitting sailor, in a 10
round bout, which will come as the
windup to the Oakland Wheelmen's
boxing show- of. five events. Barry has
.fought some of the most prominent
men in the game.'and when all of the
big fellows were sidestepping Sam
Langford the Chicago swatter always
showed a willingness to meet him.
He has faced the dusky Weymouth
fighter seven times in" the Tast • five
years and has held his own In a major
ity of the goes.
Barry is hard 'at \u25a0, work at the Seal
Rook house and~is rapidly getting into
shape. Tho husky Illinois lad shows
lots of .class in his sparring bouts, and
although he figures to take the meas

up several good battles here, and both
Luke Marisch, his manager, and the
fighter himself are willing to risk coin
on. the outcome.

at Joe Millett's training camp at Colma
