Doesn't Know Haw to Stall The style ot the lieanlown kid is o! the kind that makes for popularity, for lie is everlastingly in action. Judg- ing by his last bout, with' Moha, he doesn't know how to stall. Ho started after Moha when the first gong clanged and he was still alter him at the final bell, never giving the Milwaukecan a moment's rest. Was it rough on Moha? Well, wo should say so! It was only by tho skin of his teeth that Eddie j managed lo weather lhe fierce storm I of punching In [he final round, and, al that, he was on the canvas when the sweet sound of the bell came to his ears. In his styje Eagan reminds us of Terrihlo Terry McGovern. Always tearing In and paying no attention lo :he punches of his opponent, he's al- ways willing lo Irade a punch; and well may he do he hits harder with his short punches than any welter wo'vo looked at In a long time. Short punches ara Eagan's long sull. Evi- dently, he can't do a thing at long range, for he is a hooker with both Itands.
