Young Latin-American fighter

Joe Rivers, ihe little Mexican, who a
few years ago was earning 4 per helping
out In odd Jobs around a Greaser restau
rant, has, In two years, made SG0.000. And
he did not have a title tacked to his name
With which to draw crowds.
' The dark-skinned little fellow gained
thousands of friends by his fast fighting
and willingness to mix things at all times,
and these attributes have brought him.
aa'fortune he never could have, dreamed,
of three years ago.
Now he Is fighting for the lightweight
championship and another big wad of
dough. He meets Willie Richie, the title
holder, in San Francisco on July 4.
Although he has been fighting five
years, River's name didn't amount to
.much' until the last two years. tnis
fights and what they brought to him 'are
tjventy-sfx contests JGCijCOO. Many fctar
boxer' has faithfully fought half a decade
and earned less. Some champions have
perforrted fifty -times without accumulat

But- that's what comes of being a Los
Angeles "card." , Los Angeles Is the.
greatest boxing center In this country.
It was' the greatest In the world before
Ptrs' adopted tho sport over la Bavate.
And not a few glovemen have grown rich
tn the'eost city.

that is $40 and U5 more than falls to the
lot of most debutants. But. he' only
worked twice for 230. In the second argu

Preliminary: Rivera fought three times
in 1S0S. He was a mere cub at the gome
then and got few chances.' Besides he
was very young. He was known as
Young Rivers and fought as a bantam
weight. Promoter McCarey paid him $165
for the. trio of festivals, which entailed
sixteen rounds all told.
Semi-final stage In 1910 Rivera had five
entries In the events ranking next to the
wind-ups.. His efforts swelled his bank
roll to the extent of $700. Three of hla
starts gave him $1G0 a start. On the two
other occasions he was paid $123. When
the season of 1911 opened Rivers was re
garded as the makings of a good boy, he
haying' whipped every opponent of tho
previous year, three of them by the K.
O. He was a featherweight now,, his fame
fllllng.out during the off season. He drew
another . semi-wind up and his end
amounted to tlES. He stopped his man,
Billy Capple, in six rounds.
Then followed the rapid ascension of
Jose. He realized the ambition of" all
boxers a star bout on the strength of
having trounced Capple. He was matched
with Dan'ny Webster, who In 1911 was
considerable of a high-class feather
weight Rivers fpught him and made
htm take- the count of ten. The financial
returns to Rivers-, counting guarantee and
percentage were $& See how his value
