FOURTEEN THE TIMES: FRIDAY, JUNE 3, 1021 McCann Promises "Big News" To Local Baseball Fans Dempsey 's Ring Success Due To Kearns Corhett By JAMES J. OORBETT, form or Hcu v jwl1i t Clm mpion. fCopyriffht by 1. X." S.) Cleveland, June 3 -In striking con trast to Georges Carpentier' s long climb up the fistic ladder throuhg the various divisions from bantam to heavyweight, is the. meteoric rise of Champion Jack Dempsey. Less than six years ag-o the present title holder foroke into the records for the first time. He was then 20 years of age. What he did not know about the boxing game in those days would have filled many a volume for he was Just a big, strong, rough and tumble boy with an idea, that he wanted to be a fighter, 'hut no knowledge of how to use his strength and no one to tell him what to do. TrTig first year in professional "box ing 1915- was -filled with disappoint ments for, though ho won a number of bouts with knockouts, he was un able to earn a fair living and often had to "ride the rods" in jumping bant the country. The following year found him little, if any better off, and toward the latter part or liitJ he 'became discouraged and decided to give up the game, when he was beaten In four rounds by Jack Dow ney, a very ordinary fightor. Gives Kearns All Credit. Had It not "been for Jack Kearns, Dcmpspy might have passed out of sight pufinstically. But fate decreed that Dempsev and Kearns should meet with the result that within ffcree short years Kearns piloted his ftatege to the world's championship. The last time "Demtpsey tasted the reat was in February, 1917, when Fireman Jrm Klynn knocked him out in the firet round of a bout at Salt Lake City. The same year Dempsey boxed his two-much discussed matches with Willie ileehan, who proved a puzzle to the Salt Lake City lad. But Dempsey was con stantly learning. Kearns campaign ed him in the four-round game on the Pacific Coast and he won decl BfJhfl over Charley Miller, Guniboat Smith, Carl Morris and several oth ers. At this time Dempsey was just be ginning to fill out and he started to take on weight. As he went along he kept growing heavier though he did not take on poundage as fast as did Carpentier. He was continually growing stronger, and under the wing of Jack Kearns he rapidly picked up the fine points of the game. Jack Hard Piinislicr. Dempsey may not be a blizzard at scientific boxing. He is the rush ing, punishing type of fighter whose offense Is in many ways his best de fense, yet the fact tnat he bears no , marks of severe damage Indicates J that he is well able to take care of himself. Two other things about the cham pion stand out boldly. H? is a two fisted fighter, admirably proportioned and strong as a young bull. He likes to fight, too, though he is not tem peramentally vicious .as his rushing style suggests. Tjdko a thoroughbred race horse. Demposy is pretty highly strung. Ac tion and plenty of It, is the only thinc that relieves the nervous tensKn that always grips him as he. waits for the first bell, so he comes by his rushing style naturally. He could not make his best fight In any other way and I think the "Br en nan fight furnished convincing proof of this. JUDGE RUMMY BY TAD ( OK I WA" up Tvte- BAND TO ENLIVEN WATERBURY BOUTS Frankie Kick, the Illinois feather weight, who will meet Sammy Waltz in the headline bout at Waterh-jry tomorrow afternoon, is no novice at the boxing game, as his record shows.
