Definition of a Wise Guy: The Sport Who Can Make the Other Fellow Believe Him CALL'S DOUBLE PAGE OF SPORTS RITCHIE KNOCKS OUT McFARLAND AND THEN BEATS JACK BRITTON This is the eighth of the series of the life and battles of Lightweight Champion Willie Ritchie, written exclusively for The Call. WILLIE RITCHIE The fans of San Francisco did not seem to think much of me after the Baldwin fight.

But my friends down Coalinga way still were boosters for me. Right after the Baldwin scrap they wired me to come back to the oil fields and take a chance against Tommy McFarland in a 20 round mixup. McFarland was going good then. He had returned from the east a few months before with the honor of staying 10 rounds with Champion Wolgast. T...
