Week-End Edition, June 12-13, 1915. 3-D x KEIBIIS PUIS TO HI: SEES TWO YEARS OF WOR FJ St. Paul Fighter Says He W ants to Get Out of Ring Be fore He Becomes a "Has-Been"; Has Arranged Through Tortorich for Battle in New Orleans in March, 1916, for the Middleweight Title. BT T. S. AXDIlinVS, .Mike PERSON'LY BY BRIGGS ffetfAH mitfi The CARRiAfie rtAMeS I'P KAVTMOH iAAUK, a y-ILWATJKEE,Wis, JunelJ.- JV I Gibbons, the St Paul boxer, ln- tends to retire from the gamo i about two years at the outside, but I s ambition is to win undisputed claim to the middleweight championship be fore he lays aside the padded mitts. Mike Intends to light either Jimmy C ilb or the best man in the middle J tight division, besides himself, be fore tne club run by Domntck Torto r en ai New Orleans some time during tie spring of 1810, probably In Feo-t-Jary In a talk with the St. 'Paul loiL here the other day Mike said: There are raanj boxers or fighters 8S lne fans "he to call them, who te.er knew when to quit the ring. Uiev go alone even after they must .11jv themselves they re has-beens, w en the evident hope that something xrnv turn up to help them win back treir laurels but it is only a dream with tiem Boxers, once they start to go r. ickwards, seldom get to the front asain. I do not pretend to bt a great exception to the rule or out of the or- e i arj run. but I do think I know vven I am going backwards. When I B' t that knowledge into my noodle it jwil be the background for Michael. I fgu'e now that I will have about two more good years in the ring and v, a then be willing to step aside and let some of the younger men take the lajrels. lias Saved Money. , "I hJTe not been of the spendthrift kind, but have saved my money and b ! en the day comes that I have to lay tie gloves aside why I will have eroueh to keep myself and family. I wou'i! like to get a clear title to the middleweight championship, however, and for that reason I have signed ar t wlcs with Mr. Tortorich of New Or leans to take part in the big cham pionship tournament which he Intends to hola during lebruary or March of 191t It does not matter to me who thei g.t as long as the match -nill be Si' rounus and for the title. I named Jmimi Clabby for at the time of sign- ltz it looked as if Jtmmv vn. fhA ten man in the country besides my- 1 are doped wrong. "Willard can hit like sei bince then big claims have been mule kicking and I. for one of the disqualified in Australia; Jack ET1 lon, Eddie McQoorty and young .Ahearn- also Mick King and Les Darcy of Australia. However, it does not matter to me who my opponent xnayi be a lone as it Is for the title. ' I ee by some of the papers that sol litr Bartfield. whom I met In is badly needed and the indications are that definite action will be taken to ward that end before next fall. It Is not Intended to create an organization for the benefit of promoters alone, but to protect tbe boxers as well and to place the game on a higher plane. When the meeting is called a rough draf,t of rules, etc, to govern the or ganisation will be submitted to those attending and whatever changes are necessary can easily be made. Dillon No Match For Millard. "Jack Dillon, the Indianapolis mid deweight or light heavyweight star, had better forget about challenging Jess. Willard for a championship bat tle for the world's title. If reports are correct Jack has been issuing a defi to Willard to fight him in a mar athon battle for a side bet and purse. The old story of a good big man and good little man. etc, still holds good. Jack has shown that he can whip many 01 ine neavyweisnts ana xniaaie weights; in fact, some of them are not anxious to clash with him, but when it comes to meeting a man of Willard's size and weight it is a different mat ter Dillon whipped tiunboat Smith In a 10 round contest in Milwaukee that is, he had the best of it on points and iudginir from the wav thintrs stood at the end of the bout Jack would have won in a longer fight. ' At that time Jack weighed 171 and Smith 184. but 1T1 and 140 for "Wil lard would be vastly different again. And any of these fighters who Imagine that 'Jess Willard cannot hit and box a bit himself had better get the Idea out of their noodles. "Jim Savage Is a pretty husky 200 pounder himself and he has a. pretty fair knowledge of the game, but Jim wants none of Willard's game In a real match. "At Havana after Jess had whipped Jack Johnson. I was talking with Jim Savage and he said: ""All the white hopes will be busy challenging Jess now, but believe me they had better keeD clear of him. If they think he is the same fellow who boxed around tbe east a year ago they Brookln last week, had the shade on me Well, most of the. papers I saw gave me the verdict, and others a liriw. but it was my own fault that I cid not defeat him in a decisive man ner Here's the Alibi. !- my match wnn Leo Houck I evrined my side, which has been pre- ouslj hurt in traning, but I did not Tah7 that it was so severe. I did r z -nait to put the club in the hole tl r I lot moment, for Johnny Weis s' aru', the promoter, is a fine fellow. S'J 1 decided to take a chance. I soon foi.d theside .bothered jne- more than I had bargained for, but I could do rthins but go ahead and take my 7 me. B&rtfield is a young man n ho is very rough and strong, but 1'cking In science, and hard to beat r t tnat I was sorrv that I was com relied to hold back at times on ac count -f the fans, for I have always t- il nn uffst to gne them -everything I hjL c in tt e way of boxing, but in this lose I simply had to protect my s x' nd that, n doubt, enabled-Bartfield to make a oeeh bener:stiowlng 1 i-i he otherwise would nave done. I intend to make up a few weeks at my home and if the side bothers me still J will concel all matches until the fall Etson opens up " , To Fenn Boxing Association, John J. McCann and Miah Murray. directors of the Boston Athletic as sociation, are interested in the move-T-ct to establish an organization for the control of boxing In the United States, the same as in Europe and Aus tralia Mr McCann has Joined in with T f nn rick Tortorich, ofXew -Orleans; O-arles Murray, of Buffalo; the Den i t A C . Milwaukee and other clubs, a"(' wants a meeting called smie time in July or August to formulate plans, etc , to start the ball rolling They all agree that such an organization hopes, will not be seeking a match with the new champion. Boxers will do well at any time to keep to their own class."' M'LEAN", KELLA. AMD M'GBAW FIGHT EL Ixxxls, Mo. Jane 12.
