Fifth St. South The Ring 'ONE BOUND' HOGAN AND FRAYNE PUT UP SENSATION- AL1 FIGHT AT 'FRISCO San Francisco, Dec. round" Jack Hogan, the. terror of lo- cal short-distance fighters, graduated from that class Saturday when he earned a 20-ronnd decision over John- ny Frayne. a lightweight 'of prestige at Blot's open-air arena. The gong alone saved Frayne' on at least half a dozen occasions. On his- showing today, old-time fight follow- ers unhesitatingly maintain that Hogan, who is barely 21 years of age, with little additional experience, will prove a serious contender among the many, challengers for the lightweight crown worn by Champion Ad. Wolgast. Today's battle >was a case of a hard hitting, sterling young fighter, against cleverness' and wonderful gameness in which Frayne emerged with flying colors. Hogan a Winner From the" Start Hogan bit -in his teeth at the very outset and before ;the battle was three rounds old it looked as if another scalp would be added to belt He waded into his adversary .unrelentingly and landed right and left punches to Frayne's jaw ana race with such dazzling frequency that the latter was forced to keep constantly on the defensive and seldom sought to retaliate. v In the fourth rouaa Hogan beat his opponent into almost complete help- lessness, and Fxayne --wobbled to corner apparently -beaten. in the fifth round Hogan administered fearful punishment, but Frmyne players.

"Ruley or otherwise Bob Fitzsimmoiis, appeared before the cur- tain of a Chicago music hall and launched a tirade against John L. Sul- livan, in which he used plain, blunt and unequivocal terms.

Many Near Knockouts In the eighteenth and nineteenth rounds it seemed a certainty tnat Hogan would score a knockout, but again the clang of the bell saved Frayn'e. The last round found the one-round wonder over anxious to make his vic- tory complete by scoring with a fin- ishing blow, but Frayne, with his Johnson fight that it bad been fixed, senses dulled and his eyes closed, made a last stand and succeeded in lasting the limit.
