I$jH >>'•:''KA'.. '". ' '.' ?AGli SIX ni.vnn;vni.R BERT IN TITLE FIGHT Englishman Trimmed Ital\ ian Before He Won Title; ;.. Eyes Welter Crown. BY CLAIRE BURCKV '.' SEA Sen-ire Sports Writer • CHICAGO.—The last, of Britain's world lightweight boxing champions ascended the throne 15 yenrs ago. He was Freddie Welsh, born Fred Hall Thomas in I'ontyprldd, Wales. He outpointed Willie Ritchie for the championship In a 20-roim:i fight under British scoring rules In London. • •- The next aspires to step into office Friday night, April 24. He is Jack (Kid) Berg, born Judah Bergman In London, England. He would butpop champion Tony Canzoncr! In a 10-round bout in Chicago Sla- dlum. !.If ambition and aggressiveness| count In the prize ring—and, even | In this dark day. they do—(he BCTK boy can't be halted. He's on fire with Ihe idea that he can build up hls-champlonships lo' three — flrsl by winning (he lightweight title from Canzoncri; then by troiinciivt Jimmy McLarnln. and eventually capturing the welterweight crown turre'ntly resting precariously on the dark brow of Young Jack Thompson. Berg now is the olflchl Junior welterweight chainptoii—If such things be. ' Kid Berg reasons that his customary unceasing, untiring flurry of- leather will relieve Canzoncri of his (Hie. There arc many others who think the same, although I •confess that Tony nnd I are not Included in Ihal group yet. Berg teat Tony before In a January, 1930. bout, which, he claims, is assurance that it can be done ngain. Oanzoneri backers offer the Information that Tony was nDt In t':ie best of health when he lost to the TOhitechapel whirlwind. -At any rate, there is nothing in Indicate" that there will be a continuation of the recent practice of knocking out the champion in the first round, as Singer did (o 'M:\n- dell and as Canzoiicri did lo Singer. Berg doesn't throw drat brand ol punches. Neither does it appjar likely (hat the left hook to the mouth that flattened Singer In one minute and six seconds of round one will settle the impending fray. The Berg chin is known to be a! more substantial material. ,:Record-books reveal that Can- 'lonert Is the only fighter to win hot hthe featherweight anrt lightweight championships. A few oth- :ers held two titles in other divisions. Berg could join that group by ii victory over Camoneri. Soo Who's Back In the Wrcslling Picture Eack nt his olil slnnd.
