Both boxers started fighting in Laredo as professionals and have fast climbed Into prominence as leading contenders for the title in their respective weights. An eighth place ranking Is extremely high when it is considered that every boxer in the nation is considered in listing the fighters.

The fight will probably take place In New Orleans, and fans are crediting Shaw with an even chance of taking the title.

On Sept. 5 the preliminary work of clearing away debris on the Mexican side began and on Sept. 6 the work of rebuilding the damaged sections of the bridge from material on hand began. The first shipments of material, ordered from the American side arrived on Sept. 8.

Galvan, superintendent of the northern division of the National Lines of Mexico.
