Ritchie Should Not Be Heavy
Favorite, English Light
weight Declares.
Enclishman May Get Match for
Labor Day and Expects to Pass
Tear Her Before Returning to
Defend Lightweight Title.
That Willie Ritchie should not be a.
heavy favorite against Rivers July 4,
la the opinion of Freddie Welsh, the
premier English lightweight, who Is
in Portland on his way to see the fight
in San Francisco.
"I have boxed against both boys. I
defeated Willie Ritchie shortly before
he won his title. I have never boxed
on exhibition with Rivers, but have
met him in the gymnasiums in the
South," says Welsh.
"The odds at present are 10 to 7
against Rivers, and I believe that ring
Hide betting will find little backing at
10 to 6. But those are false odds.
Rivers has the ring generalship of a
veteran with 100 fights under his
belt He should not be worse than a
10-to-9 shortender in the betting."
Labor Day Bout Expect.
The outcome of this match Is of spe
cial interest to Welsh, for. if Ritchie
wins the battle, it Is probable he will
meet the Englishman In Canada on
Labor day. Welsh does not know what
effect the Ritchie-Nolan disagreement
will have on the proposed fight, but
believes that Ritchie will keep the
agreement which Nolan made.
The outcome of the McCarty-Pelkey
fight has had a big effect on Welsh's
Western tour. He had 12 fights ar
ranged in Canada for the next few
months, and of these only the bout
with "Young" Jack O'Brien at Van
couver July 12 is certain. Welsh is
trying to have this match postponed to
July 19 to enable him to look over
matters more thoroughly while in San
Welsh was to have met Kid Lucas
at Medicine Hat today, but the pro
moter of the affair, afraid of the po
lice, failed to send transportation as
agreed, so Harry Pollok, Welsh's man
ager decided to let the match go over
board. Bud Anderson Stands Well.
Welsh met Kid Scaler at Edmonton,
Alberta, the day of the McCarty
tragedy. His fight therefore deterior
ated into an exhibition.
"The chief of police stood In one cor
ner of the ring and his chief aide in
the-other. At each display of fists
the chief became nervous and warned
us to be careful. As a result, we did
no fighting but merely gave an hour's
stepping and dodging," says Welsh.
Welsh has never seen Bud Anderson
In action, but, from hearsay, he has
formed a good opinion of him.
The Englishman expects to stay in
the United States and on this side of
the Atlantic for another year, when he
will have to return home to defend the
Lonsdale belt, the beautiful trophy
representing the lightweight cham
pionship of England, which must be
defended in three successive battles
against any who have the class to
challenge. It has been won twice by
Vancouver Lightweight Agrees Xot

LOS ANGELES, Cal.. June SO. (Spe
cial.; Leacn Cross has scored one im
portant point in negotiating the terms
and conditions of his scrap Friday
afternoon with "Bud Anderson.
Articles of agreement were drawn

New York 1 1, "Philadelphia 10.
York won the opening game of the
series here today in ten Innings by
11 to 10 and captured first place in
the National League race. The errors
of the homo players were ccstly. A
muff by Magce and a fumble of Pas
kert in the fourth Inning contributed
three runs to New York, and Doolan
made three of his four errors In the
fifth and seventh sessions. Four of
Philadelphia's runs were largely the
result of misplays on the part of the
visiting rtelders. Philadelphia took a
lead of 5 to 0 in the first three in
nings by piling up six hits, with
fumble by Snodgrass. The home play
