Despite a record-breaking amount
of activity, marked hy no little
color the 1924 boxing campaign
passes into history with; few domi
nant developments or sensational
results. ; .
Lacking any high spot compar
able with the memorable Demp-sey-FIrpo
battle of J923, the sea
son was noteworthy chiefly for a
final and unsuccessful Invasion
of America by George Ckrpentier,
the downfall of Luis Angel Firpo
from the ranks' of heavyweight
title contenders, and the passing
of !. two veteran champions. An
other important .development was
approval of a new law- permitting
12rround bouts in California in
1925 and forecasting a big ring
revival on the coast.
; Only one world's title change
took place in the ring and that
occurred? when' Abo Attel Gold
stein dethroned Joe Lynch as
bantamweight title holder in a
colorless 15-round bout at Madison
Square Garden that et "a colorless
champion upon the i ll 8-pound
throne. ' .
1 The other break '-in
of champions came, when Johnny
Dundee, durable little Italian war
rior, forfeited "without fa 'struggle
the featherweight f title he ' had
won the year before- from Eti gene
OriquI, gallant . French. . fighter.
Dundee relinquished - the title
which be had pot -once defended.
because of his inability, further to
make the 126-pound limit, and the
New York State Athletic commis
sion has launched an 'elimination
tournament, the survivor of which
will be recognized fry ! that body
as the new feather champion. It
seems likely that the: result of
this procedure also will be univer
sally accepted, thus , j shattering
pugilistic precedent and upsetting
the old theory that a champion
can lose his crown- only in the
ring. , ;
Dundee, was shorn completely
of titles when he lost to Kid Sul
livan, the junior lightweight, of
130-pound championship, a divi
sion, however, which is not gen
erally recognized. ' ' '
Starting out with: prospects of
an unusual amount' of title acti
vity, the year fell far sliort of ex
pectations in this respect for a
variety of reasons. The .failure of
Jack Dempsey, heavyweight king.
to defend his crown; no doubt had
its effect on the resf of the ranks,
wftile suspensions by ring authori
ties, eleventh hour mishaps, and
disinclination: on the :part of
several j champions fo risk their
drowns were other factors to bring
about "a dearth of championship
activity. . ' :j . ! . .
, Benny Leonard," lightweight
champion, defended his crown
once by defeating pal Moran at
Cleveland .but in this bout injur
ed his 1 hands to "Buch' an extent
that he was' forced; to call off a
scheduled battle twith Mickey
Walker, the welterweight cham
pion. Walker,, handicapped by in
curring the - displeasure ot, -New
York ring solons for refusing to
accept a challenge from Dave
Shade, : nevertheless was one ot
the most active champions and has
an .1 unusual, opportunity in pros
pectpect early in (hei new year
when he fighfs Mike; McTigue, the
world's light heavyweight cham
pion. - .';!..
r McTigue, early this year, had a
close call against his schoolboy
rival, Young Sfrfblfng,;who nearly
scored a knockout over the cham
pion' in a no-decision bout at New
ark, n. j; t i ,'i 1' - 1
! Harry Greb's middleweight title
was in little Jeopardy; during the
year while Pancho .Villa, flyweight
titleholder, left for. his . native
Philippines after failing to go
through with a match with his
closest rival, Frahkie Tjfenaro. Vil
la claimed an injury prevented his
fighting, but the boxing commis
sion was dissatisfied with this ex
planation and ; suspended him.
Greh's victories included one over
Johnny Wilson, former champion,
while Villa disposed of Frankie
Aeh, British flyweight.
' With the "memory of his spec
tacular! fight against Dempsey
still fresh in the minds of ring
followers, Firpo returned from
Argentina for another campaign
but 'it proved a fismal failure.
The big South American, obviously
not in the best of condition and
affected , by legal eetaglements in
which he . had become Involved,
was outclassed by" Harry Wills,
gfant negro.5 fn a tiout at Boyle's
Thirty Acres, and tien suffered a
crowning, setback when .he was
defeated by Charley Weinert, who
had been an easy victim-for the
"Wild Bull" in 1923. ; ,
These defeats, were looked upon
as eliminating Firpo from the
front rank of Dempsey's challen
gers, hut the v Argentinian may
; .Wills stood Out agafn at the end
of the season' as the chief heavy
weight contender but h'is victory
over Firpo failed to increase the
negro's prestige and the prospect
that he will gain :a long-sought
match with. Dempsey ttill is the
ring's principal uncertainty.
f Jack Renault, hard-hitting Can
adian, has been regarded as a
formiJable Demps?.y ; rival, but
