Nowadays a boxer finds that a shrewd manager is frequently quite as essential to success as the ability to skillfully wield the padded gio'ves. Take the case of Jack Britton for example. Here is :i young man who has been boxing professionally :fo'r something like 7 years, during which time he made a record that any boxer might be justly proud of. Jack recently decided to sire the game jn Gotnam a trial. After be had been in town a few days he discovered it no easy task to break- into metro- politan light-weight society. Local stars knew Britton by reputation and could not GCC him at all. Promotersjlid not care to match a man of his standing- with inferior opponents. He had the tools but he couldn't get I a Job. j Brittcm arrived at the conclusion that "fighting1 te one thing. and match- j making that is something else as Morris PerJmutter might put it. So ho decided to hire a manager. After carefully looking the local assortment j over he enlisted under -the banner of Danny Morgan ,a young man of great energy 2nd perspicacity raid a genius for getting gobs of free space iu the sporting columns of the -newspapers. NEW KING OF CATCHERS 1'hls took place about two months ago and since then Britton has been ________ the busiest boxer in the game. Morgan has kept him going right along aad he lia-s averaged one bout a. week. Coming here with the reputation of beiug clever but with no Britton has earned fame- as a "knocker-out."
