Without noticing that Wagner was almost half way home, Jack Warner lined the ball to second like a flash.

He defeated them all two or three times if necessary and retired undefeated. My selection as beat middleweight of ill time is easy. None other than Bob Fitzsimraons, who made all his com- petltiors in that class look like novices Many people have always believed Charlie Mitchell, the English boxer, to be a heavyweight, but when Mitchell fought Sullivan and Corbett, he was simply a. middleweight. He, in that class, was next to Fitzsimmons. McCoy mention, but that wouldn't be select- ing the "best. and Corbett among the heavies -were great men. Jack Dempsey was a. wonderful: light- er, but not good enough to be placed ahead of Fitz. Dan'Creedoa was corking good middle, and Tommy Tracey was as gbo'd a welterweight as a man.would cares to see in action.
