--"Johnny McCarthy's greatest ambl
Lrjtfen is to get a ten-round bout with
j-r -Benny Leonard, lightweight cham
,f r Eton of the world. Leonard and
ihr::iytc,Carthy met In a four-round bat
rSrle 'n San Francisco last year. The
---contest was a slated no-declsion af
: fair, but Johnny made a very cred
ijrtDla showing. He stung the cham-Vr-
vion in one round, but, of course, was
outboxed ifc the ehort distance. Mc-
,'. Carthy, who arrived here yesterday
morning, accompanied by Sol Levin
son, for his match with Frankie
r. Murphy at the Milwaukie arena to
morrow night, admits that he does
not figure with Leonard In four
Vpunds, but is confident that he can
make the lightweight titleholder ex
tend himself in ten cantos.
McCarthy has fought many of the
;best welterweights in the w6rld, in
! n-cluding- Ted "Kid" Lewis, when the
""latter was champion of the world,
r5?Tid others high in fistic circles.
Jilght now Johnny says that he
ighs about 142 pounds, but thinks)
li. iic i.uuiu f-, i. uvnji l y.i ecu n
aw as 13& pounds if necessary. Lev-
r-'itifiOn added that Johnny only tipped
--tije beams' at 140 pounds for his
.match with Alex . Trambitas in San
ancisco aeveral weeks ago.
Frankie Murphy would also like
land a match with Benny Leonard.
Although Murphy has never fought
- Leonard, he sparred with the cham
' : pion several times in the gymnasium
' in the east and knows the ins and
outs of Benny. A' great showing by
either of these men in their ten-round
. . . fracas will put them in line for a
crack at Leonard when he steps into
the ring June 21 here.
McCarthy limbered up yesterday at
the London club,, boxing several
o iiunds with Joe Gorman and a couple
of other "pugs" who happened along
' during the afternoon.
- Murphy put in a strenuous session
at the Olympic gymnasium working
ith Sammy Gordon, Johnny Fiske
"hnd Muff Bronson, besides slamming
J"ttie punching bag and skipping rope.
' "Both men will slacken up in their
training routine today and take
things easy until tomorrow night.
The latest bulletin states that the
Billy Moscott-Sammy Gordon fight is

Yost to train and look after Joe Gor

the idea that he was being handed
the worst of it and they say signed
a contract with Yost.

has not don, he agreed to take part

He went through with his first fight
and then tried to hedge on the sec

parties has been patched up, and
Mascott is ready to go through
against Gordon. It has never been
a question that he was afraid of

Joe Gorman will be meeting the
unknown quantity in Johnny Fiske,

""'-''Fiske has been shaping up well in

2;;iIoever, it is his first start here
and the fans are always skeptical
about a boxer's chances until he has
shown his wares.
Gorman is the toughest proposition
he could tackle for a starter and if
he makes a good showing with Joe

Three Portland Teams of Inter

While Two Are Winners.
The baseball team of Battleground,
Wash., which at present is a member
of the class A league of the Port
land Baseball association, may be
raised to double A classification in
the near future, according to a state
ment made yesterday by Secretary Si
Simonseii of the Portland Baseball
association. Simonsen bases his state
ment upon the fact that thq Battle
ground team defeated the American
Caii company, a member of the double
A circuit, in one of the best contests
staged in the state.
The contest was not a regular
league game, but as it was Canco's
day to travel they were given the
trip to Battleground, where they
were defeated, 5 to 1. At present
there are ' only seven teams in the
class double A circuit, so the addi
tion of Battleground would round the
division out nicely with eight strong
teams. Manager Lazwell has gath

and its entry into fast company would
