Often during tha years that he was in instructor friends tried to slip Over something on Mike by sending to him in he Guisa of a Pupil some really first class fighter who had orders to hand ild boy a Good but they could t be done. Quite a few years ago a youth about the size and bulk of Jim Jeffries when he great Gladiator was in his prime dropped into the gymnasium just As Donovan was about to Complete his Day s work which had consisted of boxing nearly 60 rounds with a variety of pupils. I d like to learn a Little about Box ing will you teach he asked Don Ovan. responded Mike thinking the Youthful giant was a member of the club.

Fighting with All the coolness and skill thai had Mace him a world s Champion Mike showed so Superior to his husky foe that it was to contest at All. By bewildering Senifta. Mike tricked the youngster into wild swings and every time Mike rewarded with a Jab to the face. After a time Mike shifted the attack to the stomach and ribs and soon he had the youngster groggy and bewildered. Those who saw Donovan battling that Day insist that had he cared to continue the fight another round or two he could have put his huge foe to sleep. But that was t Mike s purpose. Ai he wanted to do was to teach the kid a real lesson. And he had succeeded in less than four rounds. So Mike grabbed the arms of the youngster in a fatherly sort of Way pulled him Over toward the dressing room and said that s All for today s lesson my boy you be got the makings of a Good fight r in you have much to learn and then As an after thought h added by the Way what is your was the reply.
