BY DICK SHARP.
Karl Baird. the great little Seattle
featherweight who put up such a sen
aational battle , with Joe Gorman at
the Milwaukie arena on New Year's
day, has accepted terms to meet the
winner of the Youns Brown-Joe Gor
man contest scheduled for Kriday
nicht at the Armory in one of the
special events to be staged at the
Benny Leonard-Johnny Sheppard con
test which will bo held at the baseball
park Tuesday, June 22.
Baird recently returned home from
a successful invasion of the east un
der the direction of Mike IS. Collin!
of Minneapolis. Karl created quite i
furor and at the present time he has
a 10-round match pending in Minne
apolis against Johnny Kilbane, feath-
erweight champion of the world for
June 25 or 30 in the Twin city. With
gray-haired Johnny on a tottering
throne Baird might pull a Johnny
Wilson as he is one of the most ag
gressive boys in the business and
packs a healthy punch.
With two boys like Young Brown
and Joe Gorman on deck there might
be some real competition for Kilbane
right here and the enterprising com-
. mission to sign him up would be get
ting a match that could not be ri-
, valed, as any time Kilbane starts
there is a possibility of him dropping
the title, if his showings of late in the
east can be taken as any criterion.
With the winner of the Friday
right s contest assuredof a place on
the bill of the Leonard xard, the fans
can well look forward to an even more
grueling battle than that staged
fortnight ago by Brown and Gorman.
Brown is scheduled to arrive here
Wednesday morning and will be ac
companied 'by his manager, Jimmy
Caliagher, Frankie Garcia, who meets
Dick Brenton in the special events.
and Clem Johnson, the big black, who
marts with Andre Anderson in the
The two four-round preliminaries
have been arranged and will find Joe
Swain battling Johnny Boscovitch
and Carl Martin exchanging punches
with George Roughouse Burns.
Swain did not make any too impres-
ive showing in his bout- with Bed
Henry, a likely-looking youngster, the
other night, but exhibited a wonderful
display of gameness and his four-
round rally made him look better.
Boscovitch is a rugged, aggressive
boy and a hard puncher. Swain will
not be meeting a novice and will be
lucky if he gets by the barrage.
Sammy Gordon, the clever little
Portland featherweight, who wi
forced to admit defeat to Dick Bren
ton at the last show staged under the
auspices of the Portland boxing com
mission, is going around with a set of
bandaged ribs, one of them being
fractured in the second round of his
battle with Brenton. As soon as the
Injured member heals. Sammy will re.
sume training and go after all of the
boys at his weight. If Brenton can
make 118 pounds at 3 o'clock Gordon
wants to meet him in his first match.
Sol Cohen received a letter from
Danny Frush yesterday stating that
Danny had signed to meet Johnny
Kilbane for the featherweight title
June 21. Frush has been going like
a champion in the east, beating many
cf the best boys in the country.
. Joe Benjamin left yesterday for Se-
""attle to round out training for his
four-round match with Harold Jones
in the Puget Sound metropolis Thurs-
day night. If Joe steps against Jones
like he did against Shannon here the
other night Harold will last about two
