Ii 0 i my u praiseworthy efforts Are Bein Gnade to get the boxing Gam made going again at the Unley stadium. It is a bit of an Uphill fight and i Hope the new management will succeed. Boxing Lias been so messed up in this state that the Public would Welcome a management that will get it going Good Ond Strong. It does seem strange that a state like South Australia which Breeds the finest athletes in the world does not offer too much encouragement to the boxing game. Why Well for the simple reason that no Good managers Are Here to give the game a spin. The Best boxing manager we had was the late Dave Green under whose control the sport flourished exceedingly Well. And of he could make a Boom of it when there were not As Many sports and As much Good Coin As there is about to Day Why can t some present Day manager get the game going in a style to rival Dave Green s Day when five guineas would be paid for a ringside seat it can be done if properly managed. Fred Segar and Dai Sevan Drew a far crowd to the Unley stadium on monday night. Nobody much had heard of Bevan who wants to engage a publicity Man right now for he is a Boxer that can assimilate a lot of punishment and by doing so gain the glad hand of the Aud ence. We have seen Fred Box better than he did last monday night but All the same he got it Over Bevan who was introduced As a fighting Man from Wales a country which has Given the world some boxing champions and Bily Hughes. Bevan appeared to be considerably the lighter of the pair. They fought at catch weights. Each watched carefully at the Start but there was very Little boxing. Near the end of the round Bevan was Down on a knee and in the second bout he was seen under the ropes. Four hard rights by Segar rattled the welshman who however always went on in game style. It became Segar s turn to go Down in the third session. He slipped and went on All fours. Segar got All Over his opponent during the closing stages of the fifth round. Bevan was floored twice prior to the Gong which saved him from further punishment. When the visitor emerged from his Corner for the sixth and final round the spectators sensed the finish of the match. It actually occurred when Segar measuring his Man landed a fusillade of blows. Bevan went Down for the count of three and when he Rose it was Only to be knocked into his Corner. His Towel was then thrown in. Or. Constantine declared Segar the Winner. Bevan was accorded an ovation. A took punishment in a Brave manner and he May show to better advantage against a Boxer of lesser reputation than Segar who has had a Long list of successes. The new Unley stadium management evidently believe in giving their patrons plenty for their Money for two Good prelims were staged. The first was a 15 two minute rounds match Between Csc Carr and curly Eyles opened in somewhat tame fashion they were apparently the second. Roun3 was begun in aggressive manner. Both " towers ? were applauded when i inc a Iari sed j heavy blows. Eyles connected with a Good Santl right in the third session and lie appeared eager j for Suitner nose a toss bounced across to car to begin the next bout. As he Corner j vigor Ous methods were adopted and Eyles went Between the Northern ropes. In the fifth round he was Down again but not through the Force of a blow. The Best Effort of evies was a left rip to the body and in the following session he slammed a hard right to an ear. Carr often missed owing to his opponent ducking. The contest ended sensationally in the eighth round. The referee or. Roy Heywood declared Eyles the Winner on a foul he having decided that a blow had been delivered Low. Evies had previously appealed. The Mot round plenty of fun in a burlesque encounter Between Arthur Orreane Ca capable featherweight and eos eoe Martin a Middle weight whose antics Are always received with glee. Round after round went by without either receiving much damage Martin was dodging cleverly. When he approached Deane with the left hand drawn Back to deliver a deadly blow it usually failed to connect. I Eane hit him several time3 with Little effect. Martin landed a solid left in the eighth round which stung Deane who retaliated strongly and the half caste dropped to the boards but the Gong saved him. In the ninth round Deane was declared the Victor on a technical Knock out. The championship of the West Darling boxing contest Between Algie Daniels list. 21b and ted Monson list was a most willing affair from the first Gong until Daniels fouled Monson with a Low left Midway in the twelfth round. In the eleventh round Daniels was cautioned for a Low punch and for a left. At the thine the foul \ occurred Daniels had a slight Lead on Points. The decision of the referee met with a mixed reception but there was no doubt about its accuracy both ment fought on a guarantee of �180 each. Young Stribling the Yankee College boy who put it Over Mike m Tigue the other Day struck a Snag when he encountered Jim Slattery popularly known in Yankee land As the Pride of the Buffalo. The bout took place at the Broadway auditorium Buffalo and Slattery gave Stribling such a rough time of it thai at the end of the scheduled half dozen rounds he was forced to Highg on in the clinches to escape his opponent s ripping infighting.
