P.Y XORMAX E. BROWN
For many' weeks to come' Gene
Tunney will draw the bulk of at
tention in the heavyweight circles.
He deserves such attention. His
victory over the much talked of
veteran. Tommy Gibbons, gives
him some claim to fame.
Bnt let's not form any wrong
impressions concerning the young
man as much in justice to him
self as for any other reason..
Tunney stands out as one of the
best young heavyweights in the
game. Because of his recent k. o.
victory he holds the edge, in draw
ing power at least, over Jimmy
Slattery, Paul Berlenhach, Young
Stribling and Jack Delaney.

The' main thing in Tunney's
favor is his youth and the present

for the young Tnnhey will be the
