KIOKE SATS BEST MAN VICTOR
HAVANA, April 5. Jack Jclm
?n. e.xil'4 from bin own country, to
day lost bis claim to fistic fame as
the heavyweight champion of the
world, the title belnr wrested from
htm by Jess Wlllard,' the Kansas
eqwboy, the biggest man, who ever
entered the prize ring.
Today's fight probably has no
parallel in the history of ring battles.
For twenty rounds Johnson
punched and pounded Wlllard at will,
oat ui blows grew perceptibly less
until at last be seemed unable or un-
willing to go on.
1 Johnson stooped 'leading and for
! three or four rounds the battle be
tween the two huge men was little
more tha series of plastic poses
of white and Hack gladiators.
VadrtecrlaeT mt Bad."
So it vm the twenty-fifth
round, wbes 'Wlllard got one of his
widely swinging windmill right hand
smashes to Johnson's heart. This
was the beginning: of the end.
When tb round dosed, Johnson sent
word to hia wife that he was all In and
told her to start for horn. She waa on
the war -out and was passing the ring
In the twenty-sixth round, when a ting
ing left to the body and a cyclonic- right
to the Jaw oaueed Johnson to crumple
on the floor of the ring, where he lay.
partly outside the ropes, until the referee
counted ten arid held up Willard'a hand
la token of hia newly won laurels.
'There Is much discussion tonight and
probably wOl be for a long time, among
the followers of the. fighting garae M
to whether. Johnson waa really knocked
out. In the sense -of being smashed into
unconsciousness, he certainly Was not put
out t
'" ' Knew Be Waa Beatea.
The concensus of opinion la that John
aon expected and knew. that there waa no
hope of. bis winning; so when knocked
' down, he oheoe to take the count rather
than rise and stand further punishment.
Johnson has often stated that fighting
, la( a businesa and he would not foolishly
submit to repeated knocks downs when
he found be had met hi master. A
second or two after Jackson Weigh, the
referee, had counted ten, Johnson quickly
got up. It waa well that he did so, for a
moment later a rush of spectators to tho
fighting platform all but smothered the
pugs. '
For an Instant It seemed as If trouble
. was threatened, but some fifty or more
j of the several hundred soldiers stationed
rbout .the fight arena, jumped Into the
ring and formed circles around the van
quished and victorious.' -,
Under eaoort of the soldiers Wlllard and
Johnson left the ring and went to their
dressing rooms, while the crowd cheered
and broke Into wild discussion.
The knockout came so suddenly that the
big crowd seemed aa much daied aa John
aon himself. Vp to the time of the final
blow Johnson showed but few marks of
battle,, but had slowed up and waa per
ceptlbly tiring. Wlllard said, as he was
being escorted away, that he waa never
hurt or In danger at any time.
Johnson said he had no excuse to offer,
and that "a better and younger man had
taken the championship title." .
