JOE BONDS IS PERFECTLY WILLING 10 ACCEPT THE DEFI OF FARMER "I am ready, as I always have been, to meet Frank Farmer at any time," stated Joe Bonds, "and I am glad to see him express willingness to meet me. The only stipulation I make is in regard to the third man in the ring. I honestly believe I have never been given a square deal in my bouts with Farmer by the referee." In regard to the matter of a referee, Joe makes a suggestion that is a good one. He would like to see the editors of the five sport pages in town get to gether and select a referee who would give both par ties a square deal.

Kilbane won that fight, his maiden effort, and with it |20 He bought the bracelet all right, ;m»i today it is one of the girl's proudest possessions, although as the wife of the featherweight champion and the mother of his two baby girls she has articles of personal adornment worth many times the value of that first bracelet. The winter of 1907:08 Tommy Kilbane, also of Cleveland, but not related to Johnny, gained prominence as a boxer and friends of the boys demanded a match. Dunn figured that Johnny was not ready to meet Tommy. When he made this decision Dunn and Kilbane were out of funds. A purse of $600 offered for the match would have tempted almost anyone, under the circumstances, but, rather than take a chance of ruining his pupil's career, Dunn refused the match. Dunn walked from the west side to the newspaper office down town, where th« promoters met, because he didn't have car fare. Th« next Jay he pawned a dia- nfind ring for living expanses for himself and Johnny. Dunn matched Kllbane with a jfew leaser lights, carrying hrm 'along easily and watching him develop rapidly until Pie figured him good enough to meet Tommy. Johnny won his fight and with it enough money to redeem the dia mond.

SI, SENOR; REAL CHAMP IN SOUTH AMERICA Here's real news! Stuff that might interest real sports! Do you know that there's a middleweight champion down In South.America with a reputation that would make Jack Dillon and a few others shudder? Do you know that th« prine fight game in South. America Is thriving and that thousands at tend all championship engage ments? Do you know that South Amer ican fighters fight for purses that would make Jimmy Coffroth and Hugh Me In tosh look like pikers? Do you know that South Amer ica possesses featherweight, light weight and light heavyweight champions? SO. According to Robert Allendes, former -resident of Santiago, Chill, now living In Tacoma, South America is the real mecca for the prize fight game. Al lendes says they have a man down there by the name of Rojas. mid dleweight, with a record of vic tories a mile long, and no defeats. Rojas, Allendes says, is one of the cleverest men he"*s ever seen in the ring, with a punch that would drive a naU through a wall. Flattering offers, he says, have been offered this Chilean fighter to visit the United States, by Chilean sporting men, but he has declined aa he is wealthy and satVfied to remain at ho»e.
