Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 27, 1916, Lethbridge, Alberta MONDAY, MARCH 27, 19lfi THE LETHBRIDGE^ DAILY HERALD PAGE THREE SIDELIGHTS OF FIGHT A doctor's oxamlnatloii of Wllltti'd'a hanil proven tlio fracture not serfous. Wlllaril loft the Bardoii ImmeillulR-ly after ttio bout, refuHlng to bo In-torvlowod. * TUo olllclal wcIglUn wore aunounood fis followB: Moran 210'^ pounds; Wll-lard, 259% pounds. John L. Sullivan, Hob KltzBlmmons, Jim Corbett-all one-tltuo lioldera ot the hoiivyivelght champlouHlilp, had Boaln cloBo to the ring. At S).4fi RfjfDreB Charloy Whlto entered the ring and called tho two lieavywelghtM to tho cuntro of the ling to pick their seven-ounco rIovcb. There were scores ot women in tho great throng. Some aat in the arena 1)0X88, but moHtly they were In tho balconioB. Moran refused to make any Btato-ment after tho bout other tiian to say there would have been no fighting If ho had not taken the aggreH-Klve throughout the 10 rounds. Wlllard was rushed to the ropes in the third and received blow after blow on tho face. Tho crowd sensed a knockout but the finishing punch was lacking. Joas AVIllard was the first to enter the ring, climbing through tho ropes at 9:37 p.m. He was accompanied by his manager and chief second, Tom Jones, and seconds Tom Monahan. Jack Hemplo and Ray Archer. While the two heaTywolghta sat in their corners Bob Pltzsimraons, J.J. Corbett, Kid McCoy and John L. Sullivan were introduced in turn, tho hist of the quartet being given a tremendous ovation. Among those holding box seats wore J. P. Morgan, Heglnald Vander-Wlt, "Diamond" Jim Brady, David Belasco, Enrico Caruso, Lindley M. Garrison, General W. Coleman Du Pont and Mayor Curley of Boston. Wlllard appeared to be exceptionally cool and stepped across tho ring to shake hands with 'Frank Moran who arrived three minutes later. Moran was seconded by Willie Lewis, Frank Kendall, Bill McKinnon and Joe Kel-ley. Wlllard wore soft bandages in sharp contrast, extended well above his �wi'ists. Wlllard was clad around the lolna by heavy red worsted tlghta, while Moran wore dark green trunks of a similar texture. A crowd ot about 13,000 persons paid approximately $150,000 to see the flght and went away apparently satis-lied with tho result. It was tho greatest gathering Madison Square Garden had over seen. Many women were in the throng. Tho awarding ot the bout to Wlllard on points was virtually unanimous among the experts about the ringside, although all gave Moran credit fof his gamencss and continual efforts to land a punch that would bring down his gigantic opponent. Moran put up a game fight. Most ot the time he crouched and forced the fighting. Wlllard seemed slower on his feet than the challenger and appeared to have an unlimited capacity to take punishment. Moran scowled as he fought, but Willard smiled. Wlllard broke the index flnger ot his right hand in the third round, but blows from his fighting left kept Moran . at a distance. Moran's best round was the third and his worst probably the seventh. He was bleeding after tho fifth round and his left eye was almost closed at the end. All the former ring stars shook hands with tjie principals of the big bout. During the ceremonies Moran appeared annoyed  and nervous over the delay, while Wlllard loaned back on tho ropes and smiled a noncommittal smile. Ho freqviontly looked across the ring to Moran's corner but tho choUonger appeared to avoid the champion's eye. Hundreds ot stylishly gowned women and men in evening dress who arrived In automobiles were forced to loavo their cars some distance from tho garden. After struggling through the packed streets they had to form In line with tho other ticket holders. Thousands of people sought admlssiou but tailed through lack ot seating capacity. ou 1 ED BOUT Em AT NEW Chullcnger Displayed Great Gamencss and Shouldered More Than His Share of Offensive Tactics-Willard Never in Danger of Losing His Title-Moran Secured Advantage in One Round, Two Were Even and the Rest in Willard's Favor.
