Leonard Has Everything
Old Timers Won Fights
With.
Just a moment in passing on the
merits of Benny Leonard, lightweight
champion of the world and conqueror
o ftwo of the greatest champions
of his time.
Quoting Mat liinldo, light imprcs
Bario and famous referee:
"Leonard is the greatest lightweight
of all time."
Perhaps Hinkle, who made the
statement at ringsido was overiiupressed
by the New Yorker's work
against Kilbane, but nevertheless tho
statement will stand with thousands
of fans and critics who have seen i
both him and the old timers in ac j
tion.
Any lighter who could humble '
Freddie Welsh, tho greatest defeu-!
sive lightweight the game has ever
Known in less man unit; ruuuus mm ]
take the measure of Kilbane, one 01 i
the greatest little lighters of the age.
I, In three rounds is far above the level
of present day lighters and at least
j on the level with such ring masters,
as Erne, Joe Gans and McAulifi'e.
In addition Leonard has proved his
isolation at the top of his class by
defeating the best lightweight challengers,
Richie Mitchell and Joe Welling
by knockouts.
There is no secret to Leonard's success.
He Is one of these natural
fighters who appear now and then in
ring annals, a boy with cleverness ol
instinct, with tremendous bitting
power, with the foresight to outguess
the other fellow and beat him to the
punch and with indomitable lighting
spirit
There has been nothing phoney
about any of Leonard's lights. He
has never stalled because he has never
learned to stall. When he climbs
through the ropes there is suro to
be three minutes of solid lighting to
every round with a possible Knockout
II the opportunity presents itself.
The fans of a decade or two ago
who have mourned for the good old
days of Erne, Griffo and fUcAulUIe
now have their wish for had Leonard
lived in those days he would not have
had to doff his chapeau to any of
them.
