This was shown in his bout with Battling Jim Johnson, wlio knows less of scientific boxing than the crudest hope. In paint of skill there li an immeasurable gulf between the two Johnsons, but in size and strength Bat- tling Jim Is at least the at the champion. And Battling JlmV great bulk enabled him to get a draw. Ac- cording to several ringside critics, he could have won had he shown the least intelligence. great fight may ren- der the Johnson uppercut leas harm- ful is another point worth This advantage might be offset by the fact that his long, drawn-out form leaves a -larger target for body blows. But Johnson is not a body fighter. Hi seldom lands on a point below the chin. It is.said that this ie because he fears to give the referee an excuse to call foul on him. Ho'wever, that is rather an unsatisfactory and far-fetch ed explanation. More likely the real reason is tha1 reaching for the body' leaves liis own jaw uncovered, and Johnson hates to be hit.
