EVEN 30 PER CENT
AS GOOD, HE WINS
(Ry Rat. MastorBon.)
New York, Jan. 1.—Everybody seems to be speculating on the outcome
of the Jeffries-Johnson fight. The greatest point for argument still is whether
Jeffries will be able to regain his old-time fighting form. Many experts main-
tain that it will be impossible for him to fit himself for anything like when
he left the ring, but insist that he will be good enough to win. My opinion
is if Jeffries gets within 30 per cent of what he was when he quit the ring
he will win the fight.
