The 'oial team non one match wilh Parsons BY C. A. CLIFT • Ond thing,is certain, one left Memorial hall night with any idea that the • boxing game in Kansas is crooked. If the game had been crooked, Jim Kanavan, who claimed ihe was Jack Dempsey's best in the line of sparring partners, probably would not have slipped out-a side door of the hall last night and would lhave appeared for His scheduled ten-rojund bout with Fred Reese, the Fort i Scott Wildcat. . As a result Edward W. Qoch- ; rane, sports editor of the Kansas ' Cit^ Jpurnal-PosJ. declared that he will ask the Kansas state boxing cotmmlsslon to- suspend Katta•an. It Is certain'that the boxing commission will lake (be matter uip with the National boxing commission and that: Kanavan will have a toiigh time-finding a place in the United States where be can ply his trade. Kanavan, who hails out of Frank St(Kiewan 's stable at Kansas City, cost his manager plenty of money ^ and \ie • will not get » hearty welcome if he goes back to Kansas City. . lie jarrlTcd here Sunday, boasted of thb fact that he could whip Reese! ;if he could hit him, weighed Ini. dressed ifor the fight and then jpui on his street cldthes and slipped away, leaviBg the crowd waiting. .Mcdbwan has posted a $35 forfeit for Kanavan's appearance and tht8 ,;Wiir^, go to the state boxing commission. In addition. McGowan| paifl kanavan expenses here for two days. Wilson Waener, promising Kansas city light heavyweight, who seconded ;Pa^iI Woodward in his fight ^itii George Sherwood, said taht he left Kanavan dressing for bis fight when he went upon to kecopd Wodward. When he re- i turned. Kanavan had disappeared. Because of tlie fact that his baby was sick, McGowan was unable to ^ get hfere. It is believed that Kan' avan was scared. In the semi-wlndup; Paul Woodward . and George Sherwood boxedi seve^ rounds before Woodward dropped Sherwood with a foul blow and was waved'from the ring by Cochrane. Woodward had struck a; foul l^low earlier in the seventh. In th^ first few_ rounds ' Cochrane warned Woodward repeatedly for using the rabbit •punch. ' It was a fairly .slow and uninteresting bout with an unusual amount of clinching. "Kid" Maley of Geneva and Luther Ashford /of Fort Scott furnished the feature.of the evening's entertainment when they stood up and exchanged blows for four rounds. In the third round, Maley broke a bone in his left hand and a physician asked the referee to halt the bout idcsplte Maley's protests., If anything Ashford had a slight edge in the four rounds, but it was anybody's fight when Maley • Injured his hand. Hoke Works of Humboldt and - Gngene Miller of'lola boxed a slow ~ and uninteresting four-round. draw In the" curtain raiser. • CO. Wllkerson, insurance man and former fighter, who helped ar• • range' the card for the American Legion, declared today that he regretted the collapse of ^ the program- last night and that he is willing at any time to giVe his check for $50 a.s a share of a purse to line up a good card to be presented free to the fight fans pf~thls section. r I passing practice.
