Heavyweight Scrapsters have Clashed TwiceWill Be First Bout In Some Months For Each

The battlers on the fistic card of the Laksco Club for Monday night are tuning up for the conflicts and all promise to be in the right shape when the gong sounds for the start of the bouts.

Bartley Madden of New York who will toe the mark against Battling Levinsky in the main event of 15 rounds seems confident according to the word from New York that he will have the good fortune to stop Levinsky. He seems to be inclined to the view says the report that he has boxed Levinsky twice and knows the latter's style so thoroughly that he anticipates little trouble in reaching Levinsky with some hard punches and he figures that Levinsky is unable to assimilate much punishment.

  • Consequently Madden looks to halt Levinsky before the end of the fifteen rounds have been reached. Of course Levinsky will have the opportunity of balking the kayo and will be the favorite to outpoint Madden but the New Yorker is liable to crop in with a surprise and hand Levinsky a walloping. Neither Levinsky nor Madden have appeared in the ring for several

months and both are eager to get back in the harness where the money lies. Both will weigh between 180 and 190 pounds and  consequently there will not be more than10 pounds difference in their weights at the most, it is more than likely.

  • Levinsky is working out every afternoon at the Laksco club on.Seaview  avenue utilizing the gymnasium there for the purpose. Joe Smith, trainer of Levinsky, says the battler will be in grand shape for the bout with Madden and incidentally for the bout at the Red Cross show in Madison Square Garden tomorrow night with Jim .Coffey who was kayoed by the bout in New York on August 10, 1914, Madden was credited with holding Levinsky  even by some of those at the ringside and with outpointing; Levinsky by a narrow margin by others.
  • About five months ago Levinsky and Madden met in Boston and the referee's decision was a draw. The award did not meet with the approval of the boxing writers of the Boston papers who stated that the decision should have gone to Levinsky.
