Both boxers showed plenty of skill and endurance and the lasted the full Twenty roads listed with no great difference Between either so far As Points were concerned. At the end of the twentieth round son Reynolds Tho old time broken Hill Boxer gave the verdict to Thompson though he did not have much to go upon. Thompson who hairs from the West is a rugged fighter and will take beating from the Best of them in his class. Duffy too is also a Good Battler and he too will always be a draw Here.

Not on was _ it disturbed. Spargo frequently showed signs of perturbation not so much at the Speed with which grime picked holes in his defence As at the angles from which the attack came and his own inability to reach with purposeful punches an opponent who moved in defence As freely As in attack. The first few rounds were fought at such a clip that hard Heads reckoned something would have to give and the snap which grime put into a flashing right made some of them suggest that Spargo might not last in fact in two or three instances Spargo was so obviously rattled by the right hand Battery that grime s supporters yelled for the Man to go in and finish the Job. Grime knew better than the crowd. He knew exactly when he could and could not hit Spargo. Further than that he knew that the most difficult thing of All to do is to land clean on a vulnerable spot on such a master of defence. Spargo gets hit Good and hard at times but in All his thrilling fights for the last two years nobody has been Able to land fairly on the Point. Grime tried to do. That.

His career has been spread Over several a stars an though his heart May Good As in his Halcyon Days it inimitable Law of Natour that a Man Carnot go on Peterfi Alir pc his top -. Orf top of that is the question of style. Grime s method is such is to discount the efforts of anybody his draw with the much heavier Godfrey is sufficient evidence of that. Spargo prefers his Mills toe to toe. If grime can succeed by utilising Speed to Flash in and out to. The disadvantage of an opponent there. Is nothing against his doing so. Summed up it was a Case of each frequently showing at his Best and grime doing so oftener than Spargo. While the older Boxer could claim an advantage in the Little in fighting that was provided a lot of his body work was discounted by the Quick turning of the mercurial grime who took a lot of punches behind protecting arms. In parts grime shaped even better than at Previn Ous showings especially in drawing Spargo out of distance for a counter. Evidently he Learned something in his contest with Godfrey and employed it Well against Spargo. The night was announced As for the Light weight championship. Godfrey has six months in which to decline a Challenge for that title before it Ean be contested by other boxers. Butcher s defeat Simmons. Of expert opinion seems to agree that Eddie a Uther the West australian Boxer should tight have been Given the verdict in his Syd j Ney stadium fight on saturday j night against Alf.

A recent Cable Tom Gibbons decisively Defeated Georges pm rentier in their ten rounds contest at Michigan City. The Frenchman was beaten on Points in every round except the fourth when he staggered Gibbons with a hard right to the jaw and forced Gibbons to run to cover. Carpentier showed that he still possessed marvellous fighting ability but Gibbons cleverness was remarkable. He took punishment that would have knocked out an Ordinary fighter. Carpentier twisted his ankle in the ninth round and limped pitifully. He appeared on the verge of receiving a Knock out in the tenth round when he began talking to Gibbons who seemed to feel sorry for him and chivalrous by permitted the Frenchman to escape with Light blows. Experts said that Carpentier s Crafty retreating through the fight would have been successful but for his slip in the ninth when he sprained his ankle. It was a super spectacle Between the world s greatest Light heavyweights a Duel Between Gibbons All round ability and Carpentier a deadly right.
