WHITE IS KNOCKED OUT
One of the Most Stubbornly Con
tested Scientific Fights Yet
TWENTY ROUNDS TO DECIDE
Plucky Englishman Put Up a Good
Fight and Showed That He Waa En
titled to Compete for the Lightweight
Championship of the World.
Woodward's Pavilion, May I. Janvs
K. Urltt of California became the light-
welaht champion of the world tonight,
when he knocked out Jabes White of
Knglond at the close of a magntneent
Wl'h Just 20 aeconda to gd, Brltt
hooked the EnglUtimtin with a left
on the Jaw and the foreigner went to
the mat, where he lay flat on his back
for eight seconds. He staggered to
his feet, but waa powerless to defend
himself and Brltt swung right and
left to Jaw. The referee to save the
plucky Englishman needless punUh
ment, stopped the contest, altnough
White was still on his feet leaning up
against the ropes In a helpless condi
tion. White was carried to hla corner and
In a few minutes revived sufficiently
to make a little speech in which he
1 fought the best I knew how. I
received fair play; but Brltt ia evi
dently a better man."
Brltt's victory was, of courae, loud
ly acclaimed by the people In hla home
town, but White, although a defeated
man. was cheered Just as vociferously
for the magnificent fight he made. AU
through the battle White ahowed that
he was entitled to compete for the
championship honors. He Is a clever
boxer, an experleaced ring general and
haa a cool head that carried htm out of
difficulty many tlmea , He seemed to
lack, however, one requisite, for a
champion knockout blow. . He landed
on Brltt's Jaw many times with both
right and left, but apparently did not
hour the little San Frisco dog.
In the 12th rouid it looked aa
though White had a chance. He land
ed a vicious right on Brltt's Jaw and
aa the latter was off his balance he
went to the floor and rolled under the
ropes. He was not hurt, however, and
came back fighting faster .than "vr.
Brltt forced matters all through the
flght. ' He paid particular attention to
White's stomach, occasionally swing
ing for the Jaw. The Englishman's
cleverness enabled Mm' during most
of the fight to block Brltfa wicked
punches for the stomach and duck
swings for the head. During the lat
ter part of the fight,' Brltt tised only
his left and persistent care of his right
led the apecators to fear that he had
damaged It.'- -
But hla right was In good order. .and
he turned It loose In the 19th round
when he swung for Whlte'a stomach
and Jaw. Brltt paid tribute to White
by saying he la the cleverest boxer In
the world. , He staged and blocked and
kept me away Irt a manner that wae
never done before, said the champion.
Had he come at roe and led I could
have finished him sooner, as he would
havo left more openings. , j
The fight tonlgth was by long odJs
the cleverest exhibition that has evei
been given in recent years In San
Francisco. Brltt demonstrated what
his admirers have always claimed, that
though he Is not a showy boxer, he le
a hard man to hit. '
When the men came up for the last
round, Brit: Jumped at hla man and
kept right on top ot him. It waa hit
and clinch and hit and clinch again.
The Callfornlan had cut loose with
his right and waded, in swinging both
hands. He took Whlte'a punchea fre
Jy and landed harder ones In return.
The fury f his attack was unresist,
able. White's guard was beaten down
and then came that dreadful swing to
the face that ended the fight and kept
the championship of the world In Am
erica. ,.: s, ,',;t i
, Goorge Harding, the veteran. tlme
keeper and expert on matters pertain
ing to the ring, atated that it was the
most clearer, - scientific fight he had
ever seen.-. , :
Brltt,. after the fight, declared hie
willingness to meet Battlelng Nelson
and probably, the next most Important
contest here will be between the two
men. ' '
