For on December 10 the New Orleans pro- moters have Wiilanl's signature to article calling for a 20-round bout between the" champion and a contem- porary heavyweight, as yet unnamed, must post the first slice oi the .100 purse they have guaranteed the title-holder. Jess is to ihis .sum whether he wins, loses or draws. And there is ;i referee's decision at- tached so Willard's newly acquired heavy weight championship is really in the balance. On that sainn date, December 10, (lie name oE Willard's prospective op- ponent will be announced to a palpi- tating populace. And many variegat- ed faces and forms pass in review be- fore our mind's eye as we prer into the future and try to detect Willard's opponent. Moran Only Logical Opponent Frank Moran, Jim Coiley and Fred Fulton have been exploited as the "logical" opponents for Willard in the forthcoming battle. And at once we j are impelled to eliminate the names of Cofl'ey and Fulton, for there is nothing in the record of either to warrant a match with the champion. I And this in spite of the fact that it I looks as if Fulton will ultimately be selected as the other principal in the big bout. Coffcy and Fulton, if we go on their records, practically eliminate them- selves, even before they are consider- ed. There are several reasons why i ColTey is not deserving of considera- j tion. The first is that he was knock- i ed out hy Moran in three rounds the others don't count. Fulton has done all of his fifth ting, such as ii; is, in the middle west, ami with indifferent success. ]t took him 1'i rounds to stop Arthur Pelkey, and it was a technical at that. Fulton dropped Pelkey 12 times j in this last round, hut could not mas- j ler one blow that, could keep Pelkey down. So the referee stopped the t fight. And Coffcy knocked out Pelkey i in three rounds Burns May Be the One A lurking suspicion here enters our cupola: What is there to1 prevent the same Tommy Burns from being Will-; ard's opponent Burns is courageous enough to try it. And he is vain j enough to attempt it. too. Little Hums had> no fear of big Johnson, and did not yield his title to the burly after Ii rounds of furious fighting.

All that Cove claims to have accomplished within the roped arena is quite true. In fact, the fighter who abandoned the ring to enter the service of his King and country with the -17th bat- talion, has been somewhat modest in his claims. His real name is Percy Chamberlain, and lie was born; as he says, in Ottawa in 1881. In any event "Cove" took up amateur boxing at the 0. A. A. C. and won the club bantam weight championship. He fin- ally decided to become a professional, though his parents were very much opposed to it. Cove fought Daley, of Spo- kane, in Lethhridge, about five, years ago, winning by an alleged knockout in the sixth round. The bout was a frosty affair.

Only in the fina'i round did Kilbaue try to do he all but knocked his opponent out. Hommey was inclined to cover up, making, it next to impossible for Kilbaue to get at him.
