'-NEW YORK, Feb. 10. Benny Leonard, worlds light
weight boxing champion, retained his title tonight by re
ceiving the judge's decision over Rocky Kansas of Buffalo
'at th end of their 15-round bout in Madison Square garden.
. The champion worked slowly and his blows appeared to
have little effect during the early rounds. In these rounds
Kansas appeared to have little the- better of the exchanges.
In the seventh round Leonard's blows were truer and from
then on he landed as he pieased and took few blows in return.
In the Mih round, after an interchange of body blows,
Leonard caught the challenger on the point of the jaw with
4 left hcok and Kans;t3 '.vent down for a count of nine.
After thp bout. Leonard said :ie had learned in a previous
bout with Kansas at Harrison, N. J., last summer that the
Buffaloan was "a tough boy" and that he knew he would
have to be cautious in 6rder to retain his championship.
The:f irst four rounds of the bout went to Kansas ; the
fifth and sixth were even and the others were Leonards.

The reqnest of Premier Potn
