BY SEABURN BROWN
Betting odds have
never been so mis
leading in the world of
sports ns during thr past
year. Time and time
again the "wise money"
has been called wrong.
On Ihe football field, the
diamond, in the ring and

RY LEO H. LASSEN
"JENNY LEONARD, champion lightweight of
( the world, is the only real champion in the
rirg today.
1 So says James Corbett. "(lentleman Jim,"
/ who was ranked as one of the cleverest men
to ever hold the world's heavyeight title.
Corbett is a Seattle visitor this week, ap
' pearing in a vaudeville act at the Moore
« tli ate r.
"Leonard is the only champion in the ring
today who can hit nnd box too," says Corbett. "He is a master
boxer, a deep student of the game, and one of the greatest fel
lows that ever stepped thru the ropes.
"The first time 1 realized what a great fighter Ixxtnard is
was a few years ago when he licked Johnny Kilbane, who was
then, and still is, the champion featherweight. They fought
at Philadelphia. In the first round neither man landed a
b-.ow, but Leonard si:nply outfoxed Kilbane by crowding him
and Kilbane, all set to swing
his right hand, was continu
ally off balance. Wnen they
came back for the second
round, Kilbane finally blew
up and Leonard knocked him
out in the next session."
