Since George Thompson Nas been in this state he has not had the Best of Luck in connection with his boxing contests and his meeting with pud Segar on monday night last was no exception. A crowd somewhat smaller than was generally anticipated were in attendance at the Unley stadium to see George Thompson Champion middleweight of West Australia and pud Segar Champion middleweight of South Australia in action. They fought at catch weights and the bout was Over 20 two minutes rounds. This contest was looked upon As being one out of the Ordinary Lor boxing followers As both Thompson and Segar Are Clever and determined boxers and it was generally regarded that some Clever and Brilliant boxing would be witnessed. Again those lovers of the gentle Art were disappointed in the display. Thompson. After being warned in the second round by or. Noon 1 an for hitting a bit Low again of-1 fended in the fifth session and or Noonan immediately awarded the contest to Segar. The bout opened rather slowly so far As actual boxing was concerned and a fair amount of Clinch Inland holding was indulged in. The honors of the in fighting were with Thompson and he used a Short right Jolt to the head and a left to the body to advantage. The second session opened More briskly with both lads boxing effectively. Halfway through the round Thompson unintentionally propped a punch on to Segar s thigh. It was a Mere touch As Segar was moving Back at the time. M \ Noonan cautioned Thompson for this breach. The Matt a a Peeve failed after 3egap, and got. Ihme a Good left to the head and a stinging ight to , Yajich Ujj Jan try Egar did not apr 1 Jehef i re session a aia saw a Good Deal of holding. Thompson was making most of the leads and was getting Home some Good blows. When in close he Ascot Short idles to a Jeat effect i Egar ivys boxing Well and. The bout at this stage gave Promise 61t being fast and fairly. Interesting. The fourth saw some air exchanges from both , but still there was too much getting in close and a Good Deal of scuffling the result the fifth round commenced with Thompson getting Home his left and immediately connecting to the body with his right. They fell into a Clinch with Thompson getting in some Good blows. It was at this stage that Segar went Down and the referee immediately crowned him the Winner., stating that Thompson had hit Segar Low twice. The affair was most unsatisfactory and the ending coming As it did so Early in the contest was not at All pleasing to the spectators who received the verdict with very mixed feelings and a Good Many gave vent to their feelings by hooting Segar As he left the ring which he did almost As soon As Thompson. Segar did not fight As is usual with him. By standing up and utilising his height and reach. He adopted More of a Crouch and it was probably just As much Segar s fault As Thompson s that a Low punch landed. Segar seemed All through to carry pome of Thompson s blows simply because of his a cubed up Crouch before the contest started ted Monson challenged the Winner for �50 aside. Albert Lloyd also had something to. Say. Or. Noonan announced from the ring that Lloyd had already Chal t legged Waddy and that the latter had accepted. Lloyd now wanted Waddy to definitely state a Date. Waddy announced that he was not prepared to accept the proposal of or. Hobby and was considering the offer of another promoter and that As soon As terms had t Een arranged he would give Lloyd his Chance. The prelims were Only two in number. The first was Between Brown and lawns after a lot of wild swinging and very Little boxing had been Wrt Newessa at the end of the fifth routed Lawn got the decision. The second affair was Between Evans anj3 Purcell two 9st. Boys. Evans fought very ruggedly but on the whole the bout was crude. After the fourth round had ended Purcell s Towl was thrown in but son Reynolds declared it no fight and stated that the boys would have to see the manager As regards their Money. Butcher wins at the Hill. Decision greeted with hooting. Last saturday night at the broken Hill quadrangle Eddie Butcher and Chr Jordan clashed Over 20 rounds. There was a Large crowd in attendance. At the end of the 20 rounds Butcher was Given the decision. But this did not meet with the approval of a Good Section of those present and they hooted the referee s announcement. Many competent judges outside the ring gave it As their opinion that Jordan had won. Fighting Harry Young. Outs Dave Ross first round. Sydney stadium patrons on saturday night last were Given a very Short spin for their Money when the sex South australian youth Harry Young met Dave Koss the victorian welterweight and handed him the . In the first round. Young who hails from this state has been remarkably successful in his last three contests. He is literally punching his Way Well into the midst of the top notches and Promise s to of great things in tile ring. Ross she vied up As soon As Tuosti lilies but when tie lads were at it hard and fast Diing prot Home a h a to Hook t6 the Faw mat Oss vent dow4i for the count of c three. 1 Ori arising he was again sent Down for three seconds but gamely got up and was sent Down again for nine seconds. At the stage i the police intervened and the Eio test was ? stopped. Deane beats Heywood. At Renmark the other night Arthur Deane Well known As a prelim mar at the Unley stadium met Roy Heywood once Well in the spotlight. Deane who is Only 19 years of age. Deane who is Only Nineteen years of age gave his older opponent a torrid time and Heywood turned it up in the 12th round., having Hurt his left hand in the ninth. He was cheered for his Pluck in carrying on with one Flipper. Up till the ninth round there was nothing to choose Between the pair. After the fight Heywood announced that he was done with the game for Good and All. We Don t think Roy is retiring to a life on easy Street with a Rolls Royce or two to make life pleasant. Yet he should for there was a time when he could command a hearing from the Best of nine stoners. Deane is billed to meet a. Fincher at Renmark shortly. Fincher is also Well known As a participant in curtain raisers at the Unley stadium., Gornik beats Shade. At the Brisbane stadium last saturday night Max Gornik Queens Jand s Best known fighter met Billy Shade the american who has a recent win against Ern Waddy to his credit. The Battle Gornik and Shade put up is described As the fiercest Ever seen in Brisbane but unfortunately the slogging match was spoiled by the worst sort of hooliganism Ever seen at a Brisbane fight or at any other fight that has taken place in Australia under Marquis of tiie Nesbery rules. Two Beer bottles one full were hurled into the ring _ from the darkened Back benches during the seventh round and went flying into broken fragments. How injury was not caused remains a mystery. The bottle throwing was evidently a protest against the use of the Rabbit killer punch by the american but the Prospect of injury to Gornik As Well As the referee and hundreds of ringside patrons does not appear to have entered the offender s head. Both bottles were too Well thrown for the miscreant to have been very much the worse for liquor. The police intervened when Shade had been fought to a standstill and the referee crowned Gornik. In the second round a weighty Light uppercut loosened several of Shade r s Teeth and a moment later he spat them out. In the fourth round both men were practically out. The final. The final game will be played next saturday when sturts. Leaders of the major round will play the West Torrens minor Premier Sand the position is left with the two teams who have played most consistently throughout the whole season to fight of the finish. Sturts run the last two saturdays has wound them up in Fine form whereas the Torrens have had to stand Down. On the general display Given by the sturts against the nor Woods it would appear that they have More than an even Chance. They Field a big team and All Are in Fine fettle. Torrens however will make an unusually hard fight to gain their first premiership. The game next saturday will present a vastly different Type of game from last week. Norwood and sturts have throughout the season played much the same styles Long kicking High marking and individual excelling and this resulted in their clash to a most spirited encounter Man to Man. Next week with the sturts match against the Torrens flee Ness of foot combined team work and Snappy passing the Unley ites must needs do More than spoil and beat the Man Thev stand. The result of the game depends upon the Torrens ability to pick up their system right from the Bounce and maintain the Pace. The sturts Are a team of Brilliant individualists who look for openings when presented. The Torrens will use All the ground the wings provide and Flash the play goal wards by Well judged scouting and accuracy of passing. Who will win this game should prove the system Best adapted for snatch winning. Harry Collins and Tommy Uren. Matched for middleweight championship. A contest that should be Worth witnessing will be the one Between Harry coiling and Tommy Uren for the middleweight championship of Australia and the bout has been fixed for october 4a.j.c. Derby night and it goes without saying that the Sydney stadium will House a record crowd on that night. This should be a capital contest As it will be the first time Uren has been Able to get into the ring Ai. His natural weight for some time. He has had to make weight for the Welters and has As a consequence not been Able to do himself Justice. Collins is such a rare fighter that he will not worry abcs the few pounds he will have to give away. If Stewart the Melbourne middleweight still claims the title which lie held for some time but was deemed to have lost it because of his failure to defend the championship. Stewart has issued a notice that he is prepared to fight Uren or Collins for his championship but it Appeal s in consequence of Uren and Collins being matched for the title now Heid by Uren that Stewart and his Contention is not taken seriously. Merv. Williams is also on the Warpath. When he Learned that Uren Collins had been matched he immediately issued a Challenge to fight the Winner. Failing this Williams would fight Ern Waddy for the heavy title. Williams reckons that Waddy should have no objection to his drawing Power and says. For i am not fussy where i fight him but i have my doubts about getting ? ? result of final round. Norwood 103 Points Defeated West Torrens minor premiers 88. Sturts 93 Points Defeated ports 59. Sturts 65 Points Defeated nor Woods 49. Attendance. Last saturday s attendance proved the record crowd at a one Day s sporting fixture in South Australia. The official figures is it Down at Over 42,300, and the sight on the Adelaide Oval was Worth seeing. All the Mounds were packed while the stands were filled to capacity. Not so very Many years ago a crowd of 26,000 witnessed the final match of that season Between nor Woods and ports and football As a result was hailed As the Premier sport. Since that time attendances have continued to increase largely perhaps from the interest shown in the contests by the fairer sex. Some time ago in an Endeavor to Popularise the game league teams issued members tickets which carried the rights of a lady s ticket but since the War interval this system has been rescinded and All have now to pay at the Gates. That a crowd of such vast numbers As witnessed last week s fixture can be gathered is most satisfactory but the maintenance of the enthusiasm is Well worthy of consideration. A return to the club membership might Well be considered As a Means to this end for if the opinion grows that football is allowed to become a matter of Gate then its popularity will suffer. What is required is Good sport and arrangements made whereby it will be no More than self supporting. Trophy winners. The players who provided last week s entertainment were Well catered for by patrons of the sport in the matter of trophies. Woodrow hats were won by Best Sturt player e. Colquhoun Best Norwood player w. Scott. Other trophies were presented f. Gelding and a. Weller by supporters of the Sturt team. Three year old supremacy still unsettled. The question As to whether heroic or Nigger minstrel is the better three year old still remains unsettled. Sportsmen ail Over Australasia were looking Forward to the pair meeting in the Lios Hill guineas the first of the new South Wales classics last saturday but the expected encounter did not eventuate. Discussion was Rife As to the relative merits of the australian and the new zealand or but through the withdrawal of heroic the Point is still a moot one. There was a suspicion during the latter Pait of last week that everything was not quite right with the palais cok but although he appeared Well enough on the saturday morning it was decided to scratch him. With heroic out of the Way Nigger minstrel was at a Shade of Odds on and he apparently had Little trouble to score by several lengths. The nine Furlong journey was covered in 1.5.3, which equal to the Rosehill record for the distance and All doubts have been dispelled concerning the brilliance of the brother to desert Gold. Nigger minstrel was slightly Limpy after the race but according to later advices he seemed All right when on the track on monday. Providing both Colts can be kept All right in the interval and that they both strip in the Pink in the . Derby the Battle Between saturday s Winner and heroic should be Worth going a Long Way to see. New zealand horses have carried off this contest on quite a number of occasions among them having been not uniform gloaming biplane Kilboy i Cupidon and Ballymena and it remains to be seen this year whether the Champion from the Dominion will prove equal to following the footsteps of those mentioned and Downing the Commonwealth s Best. Wrestling Miller beats Lim Utkin. The return match Between Walter Miller and the monster finn Peter Lim Utkin was the Star item on the Melbourne stadium programme last saturday night. This time the american won in quicker time than on the first occasion and the Melbourne papers have no hesitation in saying that he is the Best wrestler that has Ever visited Australia. Miller is now on his Way Back to Yankee land with a Good big wad of Commonwealth banknotes. Wallace Mortlake lame. Wallace Mortlake. Who ran Thi o in the Chelmsford stakes at Randwick. Was slightly lame when he a lied up. It was found that he had bruised his Heel and is in the hand of the vet.
