the highest honor In the lightweight
division yesterday when he defeated
the champion In the 16th of a sched
uled 20-round battle. Willie Ritchie
of San Francisco is the world's best
133-pound pugilist.
Referee Jim Griffin awarded the
lightweight crown to Ritchie after
Wolgast, groggy from a terrific right
cross to the jaw, had fouled the pre
tender twice. The champion had
been sent to the floor by the impact of
the blow and waa tottering about tho

tle the better from the beating, which
he had assimilated, attempting to put
over the finishing punch.
Never has a championship battle
been more bitterly contested. Never
has there been so much fighting in

two men more evenly matched been
seen in such a battering, hammering
and flogging match.

From the tap of the first gong until
Referee Griffin held up Ritchie's hand

with light quantities of blood spilt.
Ritchie presented a sorry appearance
as he smiled a thanks to the cheering
mob, who eagerly congratulated the
first native son to win the title. His
eye was closed and he was bleeding
from the mouth and nose, but bis
hurts bothered him none, for he was
the victor.
Wolgast did not show the batter

dejected bang-dog look and his mouth
twitched as if he were suffering pain.
The effects of that finishing right
