PAGE SIX BI.YTHRVILLE, (ARK.) COURIER KEY,'? SATURDAY, JANUARY G, ONER. fflS !E The Babe Buckles Down to Reducing Kingiish, Conqueror Dempsey, Sharkcv Loughran Meets Mnxic. BY JIMMY DONAHl'i: NEA Strvlce Siwrls Writer CHICAGO. Jan. 6.—There never has been any doubt in the imnd o! King I-cvinsky as to il«> Icleiul- ty of the heavyweight champion ol Ihe world. The champion. Ihc Kingfish .will tell yon »iilioui any bribing, is Klngfish Lcvinsky. Shortly after Ihe Kin? defeated Jack Demuscy In 1932. Ihe Klng- flsh, who was chrlstcneil Harry Krakow In New York, and who earned the nickname of "Kiel the Dropper" when growlni: ii|i In his lather's fish market in Chicago. felt that he was kintjiiii "1 'hi' ponderous onc-s. When he defeated Jnck Shantey In 1933, lhal feeling devc!o|*d Into an obsession. So he set mil lo tell Hie world about U In no uncertain terras--and tlie funny part of 11 is, the fellow who was the ring's prize clown Iwo years ago has developed Into a foremost challenger. • • * There hasn't been a guy like lilm In the heavy ranks—wilh Hie nos- sible exception of Max Baer—since Jack Dempscy brought glamour to the game. His mistreatment of the King's English is notorious, his effrontery Is amazing, his ego knows no bounds. He went into the ring ngalnsl Tommy Loujhran as the underdog al 4 lo 1 odds. He plastered the Philadelphia dancing master to the floor, calmly crawled to Ihc top of the ropes and waved to the audience, saying: "Look al Ihc old four-to-one on Ihe floor." Then, before the SharXcy fight, the King Implied thai the Gob should confine his fighting to Ills fists and leave his mouth out of it',- and that lie, Ihe KlngfVsh. would see to it that perhans Mister Sharkey's teeth would chnt- ler in the ring—from fright, nol from talking.

The Chi -- ,^ ,vith Don McCorkindale, Ihe SoMh fighters Is bums." He went on to prove it by knocking McCorkindale lo Ihe canvas seven limes. • • * Levinsky resembles Ihe old-timers in , his willingness to battle. Had he lived in the days of John L. Sullivan, Bob Fitralnimons. Joe Choynski and the rest of them, he would have been right at home in those brawls that started lieforc breakfast and finished after Hie evening meal. Like the old-timers he has fought lor nearly nothing time after lime' just for the chance lo swing Ihnt roundhouse right hand. His battle with Sharlcey was one Instance. Jack got J25.000, and the King received about a tenth of ,that — which was divided among the Krakow family of 12, headed by his sister, Lena. Lena is his guiding Influence. She makes. his matches, handles his money and helps him to prepare ekgant statements for the press, praising the prowess of the Klngfish. • • • I^virislcy has fought all the topnotch heavyweights of Ihe day cx- cepl Max Schmeling.

The King seems 10 have found himself since his brawl with Sharkey. While, he has acquired no Edenlifle maneuvers, lhat right hand has developed into dyna- mile. His system is to lake a few belts, wade in close enough and tel his "mystery punch" fly. Some- limes this wallop can be seen cn- roule as far back as Ihe GO-cent balcony seals. Outside of Baer, he probably is Ihe biggest drawing card in "Ihe game. In six fights during 1931 and 1932. he helped to bring more than $275,000 Into the gale at Chicago. rfe has an Imporlant date with Max Schmeling, Feb. 16—Hitler or no Hitler.
