Written epresly for the Interaa tloaal News Mervlre.l (Copyrlgh.t, 1921. by International News Service.) PITTSBURO. May 27. Shortly after he won the French welterweight championship, Oeorges Carpentier ran into his. Second American opponent.

He was matched with Dixie, Kid, the colored boxer. He had been taking a vacation at Trouvllle and claims he was not in condition for the fight, which was stopped in the fifth round to save Georges from a terrific heating. Always optimistic, Carpentier's friends refused to take the setback handed him by Dixie Kid seriously and their faith in him was upheld' when he made a chopping block of Sid Burns, then an English idol, in his first appearance in a London ring. Shortly afterward ha met and defeated Young Josephs. This bout was also held in London and the British critics began to concede that Carpentier was no flash in the pan.

Tt was not until late In 1911 and in 1912. however, that the French champion began to assimilate a number of hard earned lesBons in the American style of boxing. In December, 1911, Harry Lewis, always a great boxer, and In his day one of the sturdiest of middle-weights, crossed the Atlantic to seek glory. Kventually Carpentier, who wow had entered middleweight ranks, was matched with the American fighter, though not before he had knocked out Jim Sullivan. British middleweight champion, in two rounds at Afonte Carlo.

Paris was on the 'qui vive over the Lewls-Carpentrer match. Oeorges' friends had come to learn, through following him on his upward climb, that they could always expect him to make a great fight. And they were not disappointed. At the end of 20 rounds Carpentier, who had fought like a master ring-man, was awarded- thai decision. Lewis admitted that bis youthful opponent was "some ringster." but.

thought he should have had no worse than a draw. The victory over Harry Iowis made something of a national hero of Carpentier and he now took the pleasant plunge into the realm of fat purses for the first time. UK AT LOCAL CHAMPS. Following the Lewis fight he toured France, meeting and beating many local champions and cashing in on his fame. In April, 1912.

Should Carpentier foul Dempsey bc fore the sixth, you win. Should Descaoips jump Into the rinitf before the sixth to save his man from, further" punishment, you win.

1 Htiould the police otdr the bout stopped, you win. Hhould the referee stop the because It is Ifoo one-sided, you win-Should Carpentier quit, you win. Should Carpentier break an arm and retire, you win. There are people who think that Dempsey jhas gone back. They will certainly take the Carpentier end of such a bet.

And those who feel that the Frenchman is too fast will-also bet that way. There are others who figuri Dempsey to win in a punch. They are the daffy followers that every champion has. Maybe they aro right. Last night we met a prominent book-maker who.

will make book on the tight. He has made out his card and offers the following: Ten to one Dempsey doesn't win in one round. Kight to one Dempsey doesn't win in two rounds. Si to one Dempsey doesn't win in three rounds. Four to one Dempsey doesn't win In four rounds.

Two to one Dempsey doesn't Win in five rounds. Kven money Dempsey doesn't win ill si the good old ISoys de Belong. You can't lell me one gooa man me frenchman ever licked, but 1 can tell you pome second raters that have licked him. That's what I think about the brawl." "Maybe you got the right dope at replied Broadway Bill, but then you are figuring on straight dope and not taktn' the angles Into con-aideration. When a couple of little four-roundera get ready to mix you can pull out the old form chart and guess pretty close who ia goin' to win and how long the tight will last, but you cun'lV ever tell what will happen when there, Is half a million dollars and the championship at stake.

Gunther was clever and a very tough man, and Descsmps hesitated to match Carpentier with him. It was Georges' insistence in the end that resulted in thia match being made. Like many of Carpentier's earlier fights, the Gunther bout went the limit.

In twenty rounds Gunther gave Carpentier one of the most stubborn fights he had ever had and the French lad was fortunate to have kept out of harm's way and earned the decision. Some months later, at Nice, this pair met a second time and Georges proved that be had learned much by giving Gunther a decisive whipping in fifteen rounds. The popularity of American boxers in France at this time lured Willie Lewis and others to cross the pond and it was in the few months following his last bout with Gunther that Georges proved to Willie Lewis.
