Fristic freaks Are very hard to beat that is Why a k. Niven of Melbourne failed to win against Digger Evans at the Sydney 5tadum on saturday night. This was Niven s first fight in Sydney and he created a Good impression round after round he pursued Evans he connected occasionally but the Digger was always on the move. Evans piled up Points by evasion and anticipation. Sometimes he skipped nimbly out of a Corner when he looked As though he were Well and truly penned there. Sometimes the head Niven aimed at was about g inches safely tucked away against Niven s Chest. But nearly always it was in some safety first situation. Despite this the Melbourne Man worried his opponent quite a lot but he took a Good Deal More punishment than he gave. Notes. The advertised scrap Between George Thompson the Wes Ralian middleweight and Les Duffy former Queensland middleweight Champion did not eventuate last monday night. The reason was said to be that Thompson had Only just arrived from Melbourne and wanted a week s rest after his j Long does this mean that if George had come from Sydney he would want a fortnight s rest to get Over the effects of his Lorty journey _ however the postponing of the match for a week did not seem to cause boxing fans to lose any sleep for after the Way ring had done the Guy whack act a week previously they were prepared for anything. Next monday night if either Duffy or Thompson can Dodge the millions of motor vehicles now speeding in and around Adelaide j Tel will see a theron pair Voli get. His opponent will be Sirh a Jack Cole or the West austral3an middleweight George Thompson. Wrestling Weber too big. Wrestling As demonstrated by Clarence Weber and Walter Miller at the Melbourne stadium on saturday night proved to be most unattractive to those who did not understand and Realise the skill which both men displayed in what they did. It was rarely attractive and but for the partisanship which had been worked up Over the two men would never have caused so Many people to remain in the building to the end. Even As it was a Section of the crowd twice counted them out. For the whole 80 minutes that the men were opposed to each other eight rounds of 10 minutes each their Knees or hands never once touched the mat. Not once save for an incident towards the end were they off their feet. In this Case Weber whom Miller had kicked As he Side stepped and half pulled him Forward rolled across Miller s hip dived Between the top and the Middle rope and came Down on the Steps where the competitors usually enter the ring. It was the Only time either Man was off the perpendicular. When Weber stepped Back into the ring he resumed an erect position. Weber was eventually declared Winner on Points and. Although he certainly won on Points the real honors of the bout were with Miller who had Given away much height reach and weight. Weber weighed 13.4i=t Miller s 11.55. It appeared that Miller found Weber too tall heavy. And Strong to Ever get him Oyer with a buttock or any other method so that he could work with his favorite scissors and Arm work. Then he decided to go on the defensive and prevent Weber from getting him Down and being on top. The most that either Man Ever did apart from pawing and finessing for a hold was to lock hand to hand around their Heads. Eber several times got Muler s head m chancery out never Coria hold him. Occasionally there was some unmistakable spite on the part of both men. Referee Alf. Bridges had to lecture them. Weber lifted his left forearm under Miller s Chin where the Elbow made Sueh Contact As to compel the admiration of a footballer who is artful in Elbow tactics. Then Miller retaliated by butting Weber with his shoulder and palming him m hand men were at fault. Both Weber used the attempt at a leg trip that he showed against Meg see on the. Shins Jasti As hard. As he kicked Meeske. Miller retaliated by kicking Weber on the. Left knee. Then Weber spoke to the referee. The Only difference Between them was that Weber frequently appealed to the referee. Miller never once sought the interference of the third Man. It was quite Clear that Miller was Over matched physically and that Weber himself lacking in sufficient skill to overcome the Little Man s defence or else too careful to take an open risk in going to a fall or some work on the that would have been More attractive thou or at we saw.
