ARTHUR CRIPPS AND LES DARCY [Newspaper Article] — Arrow — 12 August 1916

ARTHUR CRIPPS AND LES DARCY I am always delighted to receive letters from old friends in boxing, but none do I prize more than the following, because it comes from one of the very best, good old Arthur Cripps : 'I daresay you have had a letter from a chap named Pearse, of Kingaroy (Q.), re Les Darcy coming to that town to give an exhibition. If you can influence, him at all in coming, kindly do so. I would dearly love to see you come up with him, and if so promise you and him a really good time. There are some fine sports here. I don't know what sort of an exhibition I could put up with Darcy. I haven't had a Clove on for years, am as big as a house, and weigh about 12.8. But I suppose I could worry through somehow. This boy must be some fighter. They only come like him once in a lifetime. He seems to be the best since Fita simmons. You will be pleased to know I am getting along all right still turning over the soiL We are having the best Winter we have had for years, and everything...

NED FITZGERALD v. JOEJiUSSELL Featherweight ex-Champion in the Comeback Act at Brisbane To-night After an absence of 17 months, Aus tralian featherweight ex-champion, Joe Russell, will make his re-appearance at the Brisbane Stadium to-night in opposition to the North Queenslander. Ned Fitzgerald, who two weeks back accounted for the hitherto all-conquering Tommy Ryan, a lad regarded as a worthy as pirant for Jimmy Hill's crown. If Fitzgerald secures Joe's scalp there will be nothing to prevent him being matched ? with ? Spargo or Simpson to determine- which shall tackle Hill in a championship battle. In the three-round try-outs last Saturday some willing bouts were witnessed. In the first, Harry Denham opposed Mick Gilligan, a taller and heavier lad with good knowledge of the game. Still, the dapper Denham was putting it over him at the finish. Tom Sullivan and George Pritchard, a promising pair, started off mildly, but livened up towards the finish. Alf Kent and Ned Davis put up a ...

VICTORIAN RIVALS. Replying to Jack Booth's challenge to H. A. Parsons to be present and attack the world's records for one, five, and ten miles, the same day as Booth makes his attempt. Mr. N. J. Ferguson, on behalf of Parsons, states that the Harley-Davidson machine ridden by Parsons was a standard T.T. model, and not a special speed model, with eight valves. He would ac- cept Booth's challenge on the condition that Parsons rode the same machine upon which he broke the one, five, and ten miles records on July 5, and that Booth also rode a standard clutch T.T. model. Booth has replied as follows : "I understand that Mr. Ferguson, on behalf of Mr. Parsons, will not accept my challenge as originally is- sued, but puts forwards a counter-proposal in- tended to debar me from riding my fastest rac- ing machine, on the ground that it is not a standard stock model. In the Indian catalogue, as issued to the public, it will be seen that the model H is a standard stock racing motor-cycle &...
