follow: 7 1 1
Eugene Criqui: "I think I will
win in 10 rounds. Dundee may
keep away that long, but in that
time I will surely get to him.' I
saw Dundee fight Bernstein and I
thought he won. I will take no
chance on a decision, but will win
by a knockout. I never felt bet

than I was against Kilbane, for
I have bad more time to get used
to the climate and the conditions
here. One thing I want to have
you understand. I am not going
to 'take the title home and stay
there. I am coming back to Am

Dundee: '-'I will beat Criqui.
No man my weight can win from
me. I never could ' get Benny
Leonard to make -weight for me
or go a decision at the title weight
so why should I fear Criqui. Out
door training has done wonder3
for me. I was never better, fast
er or stronger, : and best of all.
my hands are in great condition.
For a long time I had trouble
with my right hand, but it is as
good as ever now. ' I will not say
what I am going to do to Criqui.
or what round I will stop him in,
but I will say that I will beat
him.- I never had more : confi
