As an example of boxing it was a scientific exposition of a High order. The two lads one Swarthy and Stocky the other fair and Lis some stood up to j one another and with scrupulous fairness gave a magnificent exhibition. Fox is a combination of the Mace school and modern american methods. He stands Well up has a Piston like left and moves in quickly in demonstrating his great knowledge of infighting. He varies this at times by a left Lead and a Power Laden right Cross with which he added considerably to his Points. Spargo seemed sluggish and listless there was an absence of that snap and brilliancy to which the Melbourne followers of boxing Are accustomed. However he fought at. Times with dazzling 1 vim and determine j icon but Fox was his Superior j Cool and calculating a master tactician he took punches Oil his forearms gloves arid often on the ribs but came Back with a fusillade that drove Spargo to desperation and a Clinch where he vainly tried to score with his Well known methods at dose quarters. The decision for. Fox was the occasion for an outburst of applause and cheering that must have been Gratifying to the visitor. Fox opened slowly and at the end of the. First looked like a Short session with the Odds on Spargo in fact so slow were Fox s one enthusiast offered to Lay 5 to 1 Oil Spargo.

To a Mutual desire to get to close quarters find in this Fox More than held his own raising s storm of applause in the ninth when he belted Spargo round the ring. So it went on with Fox always a.6hade to the Good arid Sparge gallantly trying to make Cythe leeway but without Avail. The decision Fox the Winner was the Only possible one and met with few dissent ends. Fox weighs 9 St. 7 lbs., and Spargo 9 St. 2 lbs. Billy grime challenged the Winner. Godfrey outclasses Butcher.

Either she will get married when you dem t want her to or she won t when you do contest at the Barrier. Ted Monson out pointed los Duffy in a Twenty two round Conlest on saturday night at broken Hill in the presence of a Large and enthusiastic crowd. There were Many Sharp exchanges and heavy punching which caused great cheering. Duffy was so exhausted after one of these that he stood still and Shook his head at Monson. The latter also was too exhausted to take any advantage of the situation. Monson won comfortably Dempsey Firpo wills says the new York correspondent of the Sydney referee there is the Firpo Wells match to be considered. Wickard appears to be opposed to such a Bent but other promoters Are f Orang his hand and he May have to engage in the bidding. Rickard would like to save Firpo end wills for Dempsey in place of having one a Iii Natty the other from the running. Tex wants a double killing in place of just a single event and with Good Proni Otermat acumen he is endeavouring to keep dead pan Luis and the Black Ace As far apart As possible. Two big shots. Of course on this Point Firpo and wills will have something to say themselves. Firpo sees two big shots and so for that matter does wills. If they engaged Dempsey it would probably Only mean one bout for them and one crack at the big Cash. By meeting each other and the Winner taking Dempsey both Are assured of two Small fortunes. Both figure they will win the Chance at the championship and As a consequence Are willing to take the. Gamble. According to reports from the Argentine Firpo has accepted an offer from an. American Syndicate to Box Walls next summer for the meagre stipend of 360,000 dollars. The to get in sred s. Services for himself had offered 200,000 dollars but had not pressed his Case so Luis just hopped out when a bigger bid was pushed in front of his Argentine beak. What it will All Lead to remains to. Be. Seen but from indications Reikard will have to use much of the inside diplomacy for which he is famous to break up the proposed encounter otherwise there is serious danger of a break in his plans for the summer.
