Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 20, 1916, Lethbridge, Alberta WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 20, 1910 THE UiTt-IimiDGB DAILY HKUAl.l) PAGE THIU5K HERALD SPORT SECTION FIGHT FANS FLOCK TO CITY TO WITNESS THE ROSS-COHEN MATCH AT MAJESTIC TONIGHT "I am feeling in the pink, and think I can stop Cohen short of the ten- round said Young ROSE, the local favorite this morning. "They tell me he I. in the best shape of his career. Well, so am I. I expect a stiff; battle, but I think I have solved his peculiar style, and will work to better advantage this time." Cohen didn't arrive yesterday as expected. A wire Monday ,.e was going to leave Tuesday morning, but his transportation didn't arrive in time. Some roundabout methods in use between the C. P. R. and the G. N. R. were responsible for the delay. However, Ike will be here today, never fear, and while the trip Is tiresome, he will be ln: good condition. Sporting Editor Barratt of the Great Falls Tribune, writing on Monday, says Cohen will surprise Lethbridne fans by the change in his condition, and while he knows how good a man Ross is, he would not be surprised at a reversal of the November decision. Fans who attend the bout at the Majestic tonight are going to see a boy who has set up a mark of 21 knockouts In 24 fights. Eddie Franks, who is working at his trade as steamfltter with HIck-Sehl here, is the boy. He n 125-pounder and fans who have seen him work out are crazy to see him In the ring. They are going to get a peep at him tonight, but on January 7th, If all joes well, they will see him as one of the principals in a bout with Spider Wlnkler, now In Great Falls. Fans should note Franks' style In the ring tonight, for the boy is a comer. The other preliminaries will be up to the usual high standard set by the club, and fans who have been, rushing, for seals all day are not going to be disappointed. CALGARY SPORT WRITER RAPS WEEKS-BISHOP DUO {'By naslus in the Calgary News- Telegram.) Not so many days ago we were In receipt of a long letter from Biddy Biahop, manager ot "Billy" Weeks, the Canadian champion middle- weight, telling us of all the good battles Weeks had had, how many more he was, to have, and bringing out the fact clearly that. Mike Gib- bons, claimant of championship hon- ors in the United. States, "had two hurdles to jump before reaching the and Weeks." Weeks-floss Match Off Saturday afternoon news came in from Lethbridge 'that the Hcss match, scheduled for that city, December 27, was off, for the reason that Bishop insisted on naming his own referee; wanted .the long end of tho purse and among other various wanted two round trip tickets from Cincinnati, Ohio, to Lethbridge. Saturday afternoon in The News- Telegram an account was carried of the bout AVeeks had, Friday night, in Winnipeg. Just who Rowlands Is we are unable to have never heard his name mentioned before in bo.uts with, any topnotchers. It is a poor "showing for Weeks and clearly knocks the edge off all the publicity 'which has been given Weeks by Canadian sporting pages the last.few weeks. Indeed, if Weeks :were the class we were led to be- lieve he "was by the numerous "ad- vertisements" of Bishop, he would clean up such 'boxers as Rowlands in four, or five rounds. He would not'ask to name his own referee. He would take any. old purse offered him In the first few bouts to show the public Weeks _had the_ class 'Above all, he would come out with a lot of preposterous "demands" that makes every lover of good clean spoit sick and tired. Bishop Starts Wrong H .Bishop .already is starting his holdup game, It Is time that he, along with his: "alleged" champion, hike off to little old New York and join the Willards and Joneses' and 'the rest of the "show-mc-the-al- of which there is quite a few in that neck of the woods. There is no room for that class in -Western Canada and the sooner they find it out the better it is for all kinds ot sports. From all reports, Weeks would not have found Young Al Ross, of Lethbridge, "easy pickings" and this may have Influenced his decision to try to hold the Lethbridge sports up. GUNBOAT SMITH OUTFIGHTS FRANK MORAN IN 10 ROUNDS New York, Dec. Smith, of this city, outfought Frank Moran. of Pittsburg in six rounds of a ten-round boxing contest in Brooklyn last night. Moran made, the better showing in three of the rounds, and in another, the first the exchanges were even. Of the two heavyweights, Smith was active and but wild, while Moran was-slow and missed several opportunities. Smith forced the figh't- ing until the fifth round, when Moran cornered him anil niisost ended the contest with a short arm blow on the jaw that made Smith groggy. Smith rallied, and punched Moran in the next three rounds. In the last round Moran was aggressive. The weights were: Smith Moran 197 pounds. KNOX DEFAULTS Knox defaulted to G.

By MB victory, Wilde reaffirmed Ilia right to the title of lightweight champion of the world. The contest was to hive gone twenty rounds of three minutes. Both men were under weight and appeared to be in excel- lent condition. They fought fast and furiously. The early rounds were about even, with the "Young Zulu the aggressor.
