Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 7, 1914, Lethbridge, Alberta PAGE SIX THE LETHBRIDGE DAILY HERALD TUESDAY, JULY Both Fighters in Pink of Con- dition for Championship Mill Tonight in London London. July Welsh, light- weight champion of England, anti Wit- he Ritchie, lightweight champion of the world, arrived in London this morning from their training camps at Port Cawl, Wales, and Brighton, respectively', for their fight in the great arena of Olympia in the west end of London. Both boxers de- clared themselves coiifident oi win- JAMES AIRD Chairman of the Fair Racing Com- mittee mm m Wiilie Ritchie nkg the championship and both said 4el_t Jn_ the pink oi condition. Thtir icoks bore out their state- ments. Welsh was the favorite in the bet- ting Uy a slight margin, proixafaly due to the support which his Welsh com- patriots have heen giving him at Car- d'fi, v.-here most of the betting so lar has five to lour in his favor. Father Boudier is to act as mas- ter 01 ceremonies at the match, the Bishop of Stepney having ohiected to Rev. Erard Digby's officiating. Eugene Cerri is to he the referee. Weighing In London, July two men in at Olympia this afternoon, Trhen Kitchie scaled 134 pounds, Welsh just able to get the stipulated limit of 135 pounds. 15LBS.OVERCARFENTIER .Milwaukee, July 4. Gunboat the' white' champion ot Am- erica, who is to iiieet George Car- pentier, the French champion, in London, July 16, has made a big-hit with the fight fans in England. He has "been wined and dined by many of-.the'fcig followers ot the bosiug game, and they, are not backward in stating that they expect the Ameri- jcan to defeat the Frenchman when they come together. Some of the cri- ties have even gone so far as to i state that -Sir.- Gunboat is a better man now than John L. i Sullivan ever was. This same criticism was made 'by. Mike Donovan, the Famous boxing instructor of New York. we cannot agree with any of them in regard to this statement. We have [seen John L. Sullivan in some oi his big fights, and also Smith in several oi his" ten-round contests in New York, and, getting down to cold facts, there is no comparison be- tween the Wo men. Sullivan was around the 200-pound mark and as agile as a cat on his feet. Not only that, but he had tremendous hitting power, and, while not professing to he .a' clever' boxer, he had a remark- able defense just the same, and his judgment of distance was almost per- fect. Gunboat Smith in all his bat- jtles has demonstrated that -he is not- hard to hit, hut, like all other box- ers, he is improving goes along. And if he continues to do so he will be a first-class heavyweight in the near future. He will have about 15 pounds advantage in weight over the Frenchman, and if he cannot win with this handicap he certainly can- not be classed as a real heavyweight champion. The Frenchman is not to i be sneered at, even though he -is lit- tle more than a middleweight, for he has. demonstrated of late that; he has the class. And it is a moral certain- ty that he will give Mr. Smith the battle of his life. Trained Close To Perfection NATIONAL Philadelphia 4, New York 5 New York 2 Brooklyn 1, Boston 3.

Toronto, July "Flanagan, who trained Jack Johnson in, his fight with Jeffries at Reno, and who was in the champion's corner in his recent fight with Sldran- in Paris, comments on the fight today as fol- lows big champion was as fast as lightning on his.ieet..He, lifted that I terrible uppercut of his with .the force of a pile driver. He wasn't as good as Diit' all" he'n'eedejl was two more, weeks' work. That ..would have made Johnson as -good a man as he ever was7 in .his life- That is how close hft was -to being perfect." "Why didn't Johnson put Moron out "Well, the Pittsburger was in as perfect a. condition as any man could he, a big, powerful to the second, all bone and muscle. He a terrible beating, and stood up under it, though. he., stagger- ing and groggy a dozen times. There was no arrangement to make the fight last twenty rounds. Johnson me the night before to "wire home that the'fight would not go more -than twelve rounds. It went 20, but it was because Moran was as tough as hickory-." "As to the interview spread abroad that the fight was fised and that I was a party to all I have to say- is that it is a lie, .pure and simple." At Big Celebration Mr. and Mrs. Arthur Morrison of the Hull block'; spent the Fourth of July at Sweet Grass.

The English team is composed of J. C. Part, H. Roper Barrett, A..R. F. .klngscote and T., M. -Mavrogor- dato. The Belgium team consists of P. fjebormari H. vivicr, A. Watson. The selection of the English play- ers, had been much criticised. .Park, t is pointed out, proved a great dis- appointment at the Beckenham try- outs where the tennis papers declare he was out of form." The 'judges, however, found it imprac- ticable to leave him out of the team. H.'Roper Barrett and his partner at the same meeting we're badly beaten in 'the doubles.- A, H. F. Kingscoie, I whose style was very graceful, lack- ed accuracy and strength while I Marrogordato did not distinguish himself. Many the leading critics express- ed., disappointment because F.
