Lightweight King Out-Classes Philadelphia Challenger
in Every Department .Through 15 Hard-Fought
Rounds; Tendler's Method of Attack Successfully
Met by Champion; Record Crowd Attends Fight
RINGSIDE, Yankee Stadium, New York, July 23. (By
Associated Press.)! Benny Leonard, king of the lightweights
of the past six years, demonstrated conclusively tonight his
undisputed title to the throne, by trouncing Lew Tendler, his
Philadelphia challenger, in a slashing, bitterly fought fifteen
round match at the Yankee Stadium. ; 1
Before a crowd of more
million dollars to see the match, setting a new high mark
for championships outside the

'on the verge of a knockout at the close and the judges
verdict in his favor at the finish was merely a formality.
Spectacular as was the fight, it
lacked the thrill,1, the : suspense
and evenness of their memorable
battle a year ago at Boyle's Thirty
Acres, where Leonard, banging on
at one stage, was barely able to
gain a margin of victory.
Leonard fought with consum
mate skill.- A master of ring tac
tics, he "bad his rugged southpaw
challenger baffled by the speed
and precision of 'his attack, while
at the same time he made futile

Leonard evidently had learned
the lesson of his last fight with
Tendler. .' Instead j of permitting
his rival to get the Jump, the
tit le-holder took the aggressive in

piled up a decisive margin

his opponent reeling and bloody
with smashing hooks and upper
cuts to the head, but they lacked
the power to bring down Tendler,
who fought back gamelyt but in
effectively, to the close. 1
First Round Temller's
A majority of ringside experts
gave Leonard every round except
the first, which went to Tendler
by a small margin. Some gave
the challenger an even break in
the seventh but the fact remained
that at no time did he appear to
have a chance. ;
Leonard bore few marks of bat
tle when he left the ring, to be
lifted to the shoulders of an ad
miring throng, while Tendler, had
cuts under his left eye and on his
nose and mouth.
"Tendler Is the greatest south
paw and one of the greatest light
weights I have ever seen," said
the champion, later. "He put up
a stiff battle and even in the
final rounds, when I got him the
hardest, I wasn't able to put him
down, although I tried hard." I
"Leonard is a great champion,"
declared Tendler, in paying trib
pte to his conqueror. "I did the
best I could., but it wasn't good
enough. Benny is a master ring
general." - ! -
Hilly Gibson, the title holder's
manager, declared the fight
would go down in history as one
of the greatest of lightweight bat
tles. ; - ' 5
"We are ready for anybody
now," he added, 'but there does
not appear to be anybody , in sight
in the lightweight ranks. Leon
ard aspires to the -welterweight
title, and we may arrange a match
with Micky Walker, the present
champion in that division." . . j
The crowd, massed in every
nook and corner of the stadium,
was one of the most" picturesque
in fight history. Though Promo
ter Jimmy Johnston's estimate
was 15,000 less than the an
nounced capacity of 80,000, it ap
peared that every spot was filled
except possibly some of the far
reaches, of the bleachers. Both
the attendance and estimated re
ceipts, however, eclipsed the for
mer record for lightweight cham
pionships, set at 60,000 and
$375,000 , in the last Tendler
Leonard scrap. i ?
