THBfc TACOMA TIMES I'm Going Back East to Try My Hand With the Best of 'em, Says Bonds By Joe Bonds I Heavyweight t'hnmploii of the Northwest. I have been asked to t.-H aom<■ th |n f, about my own c x p i r 1 c nee« since ( left the Northwest last apriug. It isn t much of a story, 'yet it may be interesting, !n some of its de tails, to follow ers of ihe glove game. In April 1 started south, and took in the San Ftaneld'o exiir.xi tlon. Then I wandered en»f. »nd| dropped into Minneapolis, where ( wu taken under the mmiHK>■•■ ■•'! wing of Jtck Kerns, well know.i boxing promoter. Many of my bouts there woro of no importance, but^f want to mention one experience. In tike , latter part of \]>rll, I waa match ed to meet Fred pulton, tlw blackarattli whom they are now routing buck -east as a contender for the world title. I was training at Woods' gym nasium. One day Fulton and His his manager, Mike Collins, came to the gymnasium and watchn-1 niH work out. I waa sparring with a boy named Moran. Fu'. ton immediately backe.t out o< his match with ma, saying that he had hurt his arm and didn't want to take any chances with it. He went on with another fellow and beat him. I tried several times afteiwards to get match? I up with Fulton, but he always squirmed out of a bout with me. As for Fulton, although I have no comment on his championship aspirations, I will say .hat ha is a good heavyweight, awfully big, and under proper schooling mny be able to get into the first divi sion some <Uy. I am going after him this season, and intend 10 get a match or know the reason why. In Minneapolis I signal up my Australian contract, and on Juti? 8, accompanied by Jack Kerns, Billy Murray and Red Watsou, sailed from San Francisco. Wa reached Sydney June 30, and my first bout was scheduled for July 17. So you see, I dldu'e have a great deal of time to get aoeue tomed to the Australian fctyle ot ! fighting. Harold Hardwick waa my first ' opponent. I lost the decision la | L'O rounds, but that was <^firt«et | ed a splendid start, b«caus« of • the handicap placed upon Amen ! can boxers. My Bcoond bout was with Har ry Reeves, on August 7. I knock ed him out in the 12th round. .Although I had him on the run all the time, I (eel lure that he would have gotten the declstou. had the bout gone 20 round*. My next match was In Brisbane, where I met Bid Neilsan, a Dane, on "August 21. He was a great, big fellow, and a clever boxer. 1, had improved on my style rapidly, '■ however, and drew ft decision I after 20 rounds of hard milliiin ! That was the only time this year I that an American got a decision | in Australia. on September 11 I was tent against Hddle MrGoor- i >. That bout didn't last long. In fact, It hardly sUWt <m|. And all because I wan flustered aud nervous about getting Into the ring with -in h a rlevor itutn. In Australia it is customary to j shake hands with you opponent ! before the opening bell, aud then return to your corner, hopping right into the battle the minute the gong rings. As I say, I was excited. We bhook hands, and I went back to my corner. Then the bell rang, and we met In the middle of the ring. I reached out my gloves and shook naiui ■ again. I must have be«n dream j ing. MoGoorty looked at me so-rt j of peculiarly, and accepted Use second shake. Tlien, thinking Hint I h i«l to wait for the gong, I ntert ed back to my rumor. That's all I reniemher. When I woke up, they told me that Mr(.<>iirij had simply battled off and MftVil me one behind ili<> right (jr.
