The substitution of Hacker for Win- kler if anything improves the match. Hacker is a coming lightweight in this who was to have! fought Wittichen here a few weeks ago, the match beinn called off when Wittich- en broke hTs hand in training. Hack- er was to have met Sam Kearns ofj Calgary in a six-round go on New Year's afternoon there, but when he got 3 chance to come to Lethbridge. and meet a boy with a reputation like: Franks', he dropped the Calgary fix- ture. Eddie Franks' willingness to meet Hacker shows How game a youngster he is. Hacker weighs 136. Frartks weighs 129 in everyday working con- dition, but he has been training to make 126 for Winkler. If he gets back to 129-he will still be giving HacRcr seven pounds, which is a lot of al- vantage for a feather to give away. But Eddie is confident that he can handle the Calgary boy to perfection. He will be there like a duck.
