was not a fake. There could be.no ob- v

and the championship rather than tba ,

good a fight as Fits did and, then to have
it declared a fake. What could Fits gala..'
by being knocked out If he could have 1
won the championship and more money
by winning." Both Fitz and Jeff are -very
indlgant over the fake story. They
say It Originated from a prediction by '

Springs, and that It Was merely a coinci dence
that the fight lasted eight rounds as
she foretold. Mayor Schmits stated this
