The Fans Are Now Beginning to Count the Days When Spring Practice Begins
NEWS WRITTEN BY LEADING EXPERTS
RITCHIE PUTS WELSH
DOWN AND GETS HIS
START AS RING STAR
This is the tenth of a series of stories of the life and bat
tles of Lightweight Champion Willie Ritchie written exclus
ively for The Call.
Promoter McCarey and I sat arguing over terms while the first
preliminary was being fought. He would not give me any satisfaction
at all. He told me that I was a youngster, that I ought to be glad of
a chance to fight Welsh for nothing, and that he would get somebody
else to take my place unless I came to his terms right away. There
was no chance to budge him.
Bat I determined to stand pat. I thought that I was worth $1,000,
although I realized that 1 was lucky to get on with one of the greatest
lightweights in the world. Still, I was just stubborn enough to hold
out. and I made up my mind that I would fight jqst as hard as
McCarey. And, in the meantime, the first preliminary was over and
the fans were hollering for the next one.
While we. sat there arguing, we were joined by Al Greenwald,
who is McCarey's silent partner. He just listened and got an earful.
I saw that he was doing a lot of thinking, but I did not speak to him.
Finally he took McCarey aside, and then he came back.
• Will you fight Welsh for $600?" he asked.
"\es." I said, after a little pause. "I will take a chance at that
'A" right, then," said Greenwald. "Hurry up and get ready.
The second preliminary is on, and you will have to do some tall
Myself and my brother hurried to the dressing room and got busy.

GETS A FEW BOXING LESSONS
Of course, he figured that he was going to fight some kid who
would not be able to make any sort of a showing. He may have heard
of me before and he may not, but if he did. I am sure that he did not
think much of my ability as a figther. I could tell this by the way
he sized me up. It was just like finding a few easy dollars for him.
At least, he thought so.
Well, we finally got into the ring. My brother picked up a couple
of boys who were hanging around to help "second me. I was introduced
a? Willie Ritchie, the coming lightweight of San Francisco," but I
did not get much of a hand. Welsh was sent in as the "lightweight
champion of England, and the crowd hollered and shouted. I felt
pretty lonesome then, believe me.
I admit that I had it on Welsh in the matter of weight. I think
that I tipped the beam at about 139 pounds, but I did not weigh before
I started. I don't know how much Welsh weighed, either, but I
believe that he scaled in the neighborhood of 136, because he eased up
in his work and did not dry out when he learned that Wolgast was
sick and could not fight.
Welsh gave me a few boxing lessons in the eariy rounds. He
kidded me along and kept telling me that he would not knock me out
for a while, because he wanted to give the fans a run for their money.
He kept jabbing me in the face all the time and shooting over a right
to my body every now and then, and the crowd seemed to enjoy ft
KNOCKS WELSH THROUGH HOPES
I had met many a clever boy in the four round game, but I must
confess that I never had been up against anything like the Britisher.
He is a marvel with his hands. The air was full of gloves all the time.
J thought that I knew a little about boxing, but after the first three or
four rounds I was ready to admit that I had to start all over again to
learn the game.
But I also discovered that Welsh did not seem to be able to hurt
me. He landed all kinds of punches on my head and my body, but I
kept tearing into him all the time. I noticed that he began to look a
bit worried along about the sixth and seventh rounds, and it was then
that I made up my mind to keep right after him and never stop
because I felt strong and confident.
After the eighth I whipped in a few good lefts and also a couple
of right crosses to the jaw. Welsh would cover up and hold me in
the clinches. He is a bear at clever infighting. He would tie my
hands up and work me around the ring and then 6tep away from me
with a laugh. And all the time the crowd kept laughing at me I
must have looked silly.
But there was a different story to tell in the twelfth. After stall
ing around a bit, Welsh came in and began to mix things up with me
I just measured his jaw and let loose with a right hand cross Down
he went like a log. He was wobbly and weak and I was full of excite
ment I confess that I lost my head, for the cheers of the crowd
FINDS FRIEND IN CONSIDINE
"Go on, kid; knock him out!" "You're all right, Ritchie; keep
after him!" yelled the fans, and I kept jumping around while Welsh
was climbing through the ropes, for my punch nearly knocked him
out of the ring.
Welsh got up, but he was more careful after that. He did not try
any more mixups. He just stayed away from me and boxed me clever
all the time. Instead of trying to draw him on, I kept tearing and he
had my number so far as the boxing end of it went, and he was out
In the last three rounds I cut loose faster than ever. I was not a
bit tired, and I was working for a knockout. I had him in pretty bad
shape a couple of times, but he knew too much for me and he stalled
, R t €f s Charley Eyeton called it Welsh's fight, and I guess that
\\ elsh did have a little shade, but at least half the fans thought that I
should have had a draw, anyhow. I gave them a good run and they
seemed to like my work. -
John Considine, the Seattle sporting man. was there Tt was the
fir* time that he ever saw me fight, but my work made a hit with him
and he came to me later and offered to back me for $' 000 aar*H»*

I beat it right home after this fight, and I felt pretty eo od The
news was shot all over the country, and I made up my mind that I
would take a flyer at the eastern game, which I hear so much abou
from Packey McFarland. 4UUUI

When John L. Ruled the Fistic Realm
IT WILL not be wise for lightweight champion Willie Ritchie to
take on another opponent before he meets Tommy Murphy. Ot
course, there is nothing in the laws or the ethics of the ring which
can prevent the title holder from fighting whoever he please? or where
ever he pleases, but at the same time there is such a thing as public
sentiment to be considered. If Ritchie is wise he will keep his promise
and give the lad from Harlem the first chance. The fistic world be
lieves that Murphy is entitled to it and as a matter of fact, he certainly
is beyond the question of the slightest doubt
* * »
HINTS have been thrown out that several New York promoters
ready to offer Ritchie fat ( — —
guarantees' to box minor per
formers back in the big city.
Hints were also thrown out that
the champion likely would jump
in and take one of these while
waiting for a suitable date on
which to face Murphy. But it
is to be hoped that he doe* not
persue this course.
* * *
RITCHIE is a lad of high ideals
and a nervous temperament.
He is not one to stand for
much public criticism or comment.
He probably thinks more of that
championship title than he does
of his fat bankroll or the chance
to add to It. In the event that
he does toss Murphy over for
somebody else, he would be at
tacked on all sides and fairly
hounded throughout the country.
* » #
HE did not lose much time in
turning down that offer
which Tom McCarey made
him to meet .Toe Rivers in Los
Angeles. Rivers is a hero among
the patrons of the game In the
south once more, and he and
Ritchie would make the greatest
card imaginable in the southern
<-ity. It was quite a temptation
but the champion passed it up,
showing that he wants to do
right, by Murphy.
THE chances are that they will
be after him 'all, over the
country in the meantime.
They always do keep on the trail
of a champion. He's an attrsTc
traction no matter who SJhey pit
him against. The promoteY
wants the fighter who can draw
the coin into the box-office, and
Ritchie Is without doubt the
greatest box-office fighter in the

THE interest will shortly cen
ter in the heavy weight match
between Ai'hur Pelk«-y and
Gunboat Smith, which is to be
decided in the Daly City arena on
New Year's day. The fans are al
ready beginning to sm6ke up with
both big fellows on the job and
ready to wade into the training
grind. It's the most Important
heavy weight battle this city has
known in many years.

RIGHT now lt looks as though
the Gunner 18 going to rule
a choice over his larger op
ponent, despite the fact that Pel
ky has been regarded as the le
gitimate white hope champion
since his <je*feat of poor Luther
McCarthy up in Canada last spring.
But Pelkey has not been doing
anything in the meantime, while
Smith has been the busiest and
most successful fighter in the
PELKY never has appeared in
a San Francisco ring, and the
fans of San Francisco, there
fore, know nothing of his fighting
ability. In fact, he was practi
cally unknown to fame anywhere
till he landed on McCarthy. Cms
punch made him famous, and
meantime he has been living on
fame and paying but little atten
tion to the game of the padded

IT looks as though they will
watch Pelkey very closely when
lie starts to.square off with his
sparring partners. They say that
he is not much of a fancy per
former, but that he la tougrh and
rugged and carries the sort of a
wallop that produces sleep. Of
course a reputation is a great
thing, but the local sports gen
erally Judge a fighter by his
not his reputation.
* * *
AS for the Gunner, they must
all hand it to him for being
a bear at the present time.
Only a couple of years ago, when
far sighted Jim Buckley took hold
of him, Smith was regarded as a
third rate four rounder around
hen-, with no more heart than a
Jackrabbit. But a couple of years
has brought about quite a change.
The Gunner has improved with
» * *
THERE is little doubt but that
the fans of the United States
will regard the winner as the
heavy weight champion of the
world. With Jack Johnson dis
graced and disqualified and Sam
Langford going back so rapidly.
Pelkey and Smith appear to have
the heavy weight stage to them
selves, for big fighters are scarcer
as each year is reeled off.

In the ranking of the tennis men
of the coast, the notable thing is the
omission of the names of such famous
racquet men as Maurice McLoughlin
and Tom Bundy. The ratings as an
nounced yesterday by the committee
appointed by the California lawn ten
nis association puts Willie Johnston
of tffis city at the head of the singles
men and Strachan and Griflln at the
top of the doubles.
The omission of McLoughlin and
Bundy is caused by the rating rules
of the association, which specify that
In order to be rated, players must
participate in at least three tourna
ments. Bundy has taken part in two
tournaments on thia coast, while
M.T.oughlln has not participated in
any tournaments this year.
The ratings as announced are con
ceded by tennis men to be fair, and,
though there may be a difference of
opinion in one or two places, the
positions in which the men have been
placed will meet with the general
opinion of the majority of fans.
The rankings follow;
1— William Johnston of Sen Franciaeo.
2— John Strachan of Ssn Francisco.
I— Ejta Fottrell of San Francisco.
4—Clarence Griffin of San Francisco.
6— B. Llndley Murray of Palo Alto.
