Joe Bonds, well known Tacoma boxer, who is now in I'ncle
Bnm's navy, can't understand the since;* of Micky King, Australian
boxer, who bus been < leaning up all comers in the northwest this
in a letter from Bonds today, he says: "How in the world did
Mick King kayo anyone. I have known him several years and it
never happened before. He was usually the one to get K. O.'d. He
did not get a good start here in the east, altho he did fairly well In
Kvldontly King has improved a lot since Bonds saw him, for
he has shown real class iv every match he has undertaken in the
northwest. He has proven himself a willing scrapper, with a wide
knowledge of the game and a wicked punch.
Bonds is still engaged in convoying American soldiers to France.
He writes that he experts to get somo matches In the east, now that
New Jersey has enacted a new law permitting boxing. Ills first
bout will be in the lloboknn army camp tonight, when he meets

Jack Hartford is training in earnest for his battle next week
with "Wildcat" LmmN and he is telling his friends that he will
put up the best fight he possibly can. And well may Jack train
hard for the bout. For the "Wildcat" Is one of the most dangerous
scrappers Hart-ford has ever met. Leonard may not have a lot Ol
boxing class, but he Is a ferocious slugger who keeps on top of his
man all the time and forces the fighting without a moment's hesi-j
tat ion.
In his last two public appearances —once before the Kagles in
Tacoma and lalcr before a Seattle audience Hartford put up a
poor exhibition. Ills last bout In Seattle, which was stopped by the
referee, looked to the crowd like a frameup between Jack and Stan
ley Trimble not to hurt each other.
Hartford says he has been accused unjustly and all he wants
Is one chance to prove his gajnene ss. Jack will have his chance with
Leonard. And he'll have to use for every bit of ringcraft and every
ounce of fighting muscle that he ever possemetr.
