Also, a next-day wire:
LANGFORD HAS NO SOFT MARK IN HARRY WILLS
--------
NEW ORLEANS, La., May 2.--Sam Langford of Boston and Harry Wills of New Orleans fought 10 rounds to a draw last night before the largest crowd seen here in years. Wills had the advantage in the first four rounds, splitting Langford's lip and cutting his left eye. Langford's ring experience told in the fifth, sixth and seventh rounds, and his infighting was wonderful. He almost had Wills out in the ninth, but Harry hung on in clinches. The 10th was an even round. Buddy Griffin, the referee, gave no decision, one paper here favoring Wills, others being for a draw. Langford was a 2 to 1 favorite in betting.
