THE OMAHA SUNDAY BEE: JULY 2, 1916.
TED LEWIS IS HOT
I AFTER THE TITLE
Now on Way to Buenos Aires
to Battle With Albert
MEETS BEITTON ON BETUBN
) New York, July 1. Ted-Kid Lewis
ii a persevering and persistent youth.
Nothing daunts him, nothing dis
courages him. He is optimistic in the
face of reversals and enthusiastic
when success camps'W' tois trail.
Above all, his hatband, never con
tracts nor does his head expand. He
is fired with the ambition of youth
and will plug along at his trade of
mitt slinging until he attains his goal.
Said goal is labelled "Welterweight
Champion of the World." It was
mainly through the efforts of Lewis
that the moribund welterweight divis
ion was revived; and' then when he
had the undisputed possession of the
title almost in his grasp, he fumbled
and lost all for the time being, for
Lewis ts ot tne sort inai suck iu uuc
task until it is accomplished. No half
vay measures for that kind.
Jack Britton handed Lewis his tem
porary setback in his quest for the
welterweight crown. Although, prev
ious to their last meeting, Ted-Kid
was ever ready to grant Britton s
request for return bouts after suffer
ing defeats at Lewis's hands. .Since
Britton gained a twenty-round decis
ion over Lewis in New Orleans, Jack
has kept clear of Lewis as regards
just one more battle.
' Britton'i refusal to mingle with him
did not deter Lewis. He and his wily
manager, James Joy Johnston set on
another course to bring about another
match with Britton. This scheme was
io: Lewis to re-establish his right to
meet Britton first, with a referee's
f Fight French ChampC
Albert Badoud, the French welter
weight champion, and claimant of the
European title, invaded these shores
several months ago. He had a hard
time becoming acclimated, but in his
two fights in the metropolis showed
latent ring ability. Badoud began pes
tering Britton with challenges for a
match to determine the rightful
owner of the world's champioship.
Briton turned a deaf ear to the en
treaties of the foreigner for a match.
After a while, Britton, through the
medium of his manager, informed
both Lewia and Badoud that they
meet in an elimination contest' to set
tle the logical opponent for him. Thus
Britton avoids meeting the two men.
, Lewis and Badoud snapped, up the
offer, and at present both are on the
hgh seas, bound for Buenos; Aires, a
distance of over 4,000 miles from
Broadway. There the two will settle
their little differences, and the winner
will get the chance at Britton for
the world'i welterweight champion-
Vslfi a matter of fact, lewis' man
ager it already negotiating for a
match between Ted-Kid and Britton
so certain does the Lewis camp
feel of victory over Badoud. The titu
lar meeting will probably be staged at
Madison Square garden, although
Lewia prefers twenty-round bout
to a decision, where there can be lit
tle question of the ultimate Tictor.
However, if Britton insists on a ten
round, no-decision bout here, Lewis
will accede, for he is conmdent he
can knock out Britton before the pre
scribed limit is reached.
Card Two Bout. .
Lewis is scheduled for two bouts at
Buenos Aires. However, it Is option
al with him whether'he is to fight the
second one. The promoters of the
Buenoa ; Aires ' enterprise deposited
$5,000 in Lewis name at a local bank
before Ted -embarked on the three
weeks' journey. This sum can be
;drawn by his manager as soon as the
first fight ii held.
i If Lewis is willing to go through
'with the second match'-which will
probably be with one of the minor
Tights with the expedition he is to
receive an additional $4,000. The pro
moters are paying Lewis first-class
passage, both ways, for three and $9,
000 for the two fights a total of over
