In Title Fight
Winner By Dtciiion
Over Freddy Dawson
PHILADELPHIA, Dec. ttJP)
Ike WlUlami still rules the light
weight! but he furnished more
excitement In his dressing room
than he did outpointing Chicago's
Freddy Dawkson In Convention
The champion, in an unusual
pre-light press conference last
night, called reporters to his
dressing room and told them he
feared a "fix."
Williams related that he re
ceived a telephone call during
the afternoon in which the caller
said if the bout went the full 15
rounds the championship would
Frank (Blinky) Palermo, who
signed a contract to manage the
Trenton, N. J., Negro for an
other three years, refused to put
much credence In the report. But
at Wlliams' insistence called the
sports writers from ringside.
' Ike refused to elaborate on his
statement or give the name of
. the person who called him.
But after taking a unanimous
but close decision from Dawson

The odds, however, on the
'champion dropped during the
day from 12 to 5 to 7J to S as
plenty of money showed for the

knockout In another and took the
third by a close decision.
Acting Chairman George Jones

It looked for several rounds,
especially in the closing sessions,
that Damson might lift the crown
which Williams won by knock
ing out Bob Montgomery In 1847.
The bobbing, weaving, In
fighting Dawson was a real puz
zle for Ike, who likes to stand
up and punch. Not once did Wil
liams land his pay-off punch. He
did get in probably the hardest
blow of the fight and that Isn't
saying much in the fifth. It
was a solid left to the head.
Dawson made his best showing
In the 12th and final heats but
his blows from the Inside were
not hard enough to make the
champion give ground. -

The body that regulates high
