Teddy Squint - ' Teddy Squint, Reading's premier...
' Teddy Squint, Reading's premier featherweight, - has made a remarkable climb up the 'pugilistic ladder. Rung by rung the local 126 - pounder has climbed . toward the top, and is now reaching top form although , he is still a youngster. Teddy Is only 18 years old. He has fought ' 19 battles In the two years he has been in the ring. He has already met with measured suc cess, but in spite of his record he has been' most inconspicuous until he goes into action. Then he is a whirl wind and makes all thoae who see him sit up and take . notice. "Still waters run deep," the old saying, goes. And Teddy is a deep one. He says he won't start talking until he's reached a (majority, and then he expects to depose the champion. Great ambition. During his two years' action in the rosined rostrum, Teddy has HARRY SOO won by kayoes nine times. He received four decisions, while four battles were called draws.' He has been defeated, of course, but only three times. Teddy staged a real comeback' against a battler who stopped him, winning by a kayo in two rounds. It was Johnny Jackson who halted the local feather in a fight here in Reading. Teddy received a cut eye in one of the early rounds, and his handler refused to allow hiinv to go on. A short time later Squint knocked out Jackson In two rounds. . Squint will fight his 20th battle at the Armory Tuesday night. He expects to lull to sleep his opponent, kill. Distance 42 feet, 7 Inches. Second ' : jpsVjtaaaaia. Joe Hatfield, with, his blff - bang tactics. ' ; ' ' And this paragraph Is the excuse for running the cut of that chink. Your correspondent' knew you wouldn't believe it was Teddy Squint! The picture is that of Sue Quong Bill, a Chinese boxer from old Shantung. He's a flyweight and hopes to hang up quite a reputation in the roped arena. .He's one of the few chaps of his trace to take - up the gentle art of flstcuffs. He fights under the name of Harry Soo. Mickey Walker will meet a dangerous opponent when he steps into the ring against Lefty Cooper at San Francisco this afternoon. Cooper easily outclassed all .Pacific Coast welterweights with his wicked southpaw. Although It Is likely that Walker will easily defeat Cooper, Jack Kearns, acting for the champion, in - slsted on a clause In the contract by which Cooper must weigh mor than 148 pounds. Technically the welterweight title will not be at stake when' the pair meet. But In spite of technicalities, if Cooper were to knockout Walker, the public will recognize him as the welterweight champion. Sammy Mandell is being booimed as the most likely winner of the New York lightweight elimination contest which gets under way Monday night. Sammy win meet Jimmy Goodrich, the rugged Buffalo battler. While Goodrich is expected to make things hot for the lightweight sheik the fans are betting - that Sammv cods the decision. Plenty of attention Is being given Solly Seaman, who will meet Benny Valgar on the same bill. The battlers are evenly matched and should be a star attraction. Harry Wills will soon atart train ing for his 15 - round bout with Charley Welnert at the Tolo Grounds
