According to whispers that are
wafting down the wind Billy Huff,
tho idol of local fans, is up against
tho hardest proposition ot his bat
tling career in the scheduled 10-
round go with "Wild" Willie Webb,
of San Francisco, at Houston's opera
house Saturday night. While Huff's
friends are confident that the San
Franciscan will be thoroughly tamed
before the close ot tho battle, there is
no denying that Wild William i3 a
rough lad in a contest. Cautious con
noisseurs of pugilistic prowess are
already beginning to do a little hedg
ing on the outcome since they've
looked iny tho visitor's record.
In fact it is said that tho boy from
Market street is the boxer whom
prophets have been predicting ever
since Huff launched his phenomenal
career here would appear when the
time was. ripe with a horseshoe in his
mitt for Huff, and that tho idol ot
the Chlloquln fans will have to exer
cise all his. skill ln tho coming battle
to save his own bacon and the bank
rolls ot his backers.
Huff, reports , from his training
camp at Chlloquln say, Is not worry
ing a bit regarding the reputation ot
his opponent. He has been training
hard for the fight and Is in perfect
condition. His hand is in normal
shupe again and tho local boy feels
that he was never in better condition
for 10 rounds of rough fighting. If
this is the time when he has to put
up tho supreme battle of his career,
says Huff, it could hot have fallen

been In flnor condition for it.
