A few weeks ago Harry Reeve (of England) was billed to meet Fritz Holland, and had to weigh not more than 12« t. He entered the ring weighing 12st. 81b. (Holland mads list. 21b.). Last Saturday night Red Watson (America) had to meet Fernand Qucndreux (France) at lOst. 41b., but he could not do less than list 21b. The result was that the man agement was flouted, and tho public dis appointed, as the men did not meet. In cases where It is doubtful that a boxer can make a certain poundage, It would not be out of place If the Stadium man- , agement were to have periodical weighings j during the man's preparation. This is only fair to tho opponent and tho public, j and would make the path of the Stadium ' management easier. Tho writer saw Red Watson give hts training exhibition on tho previous Wednesday, and he then looked like a ...
