Dillon is still young at the boxing game, and it ib the opinion of good-fight judges that with a little more experience he will be a hard man to beat.

They met in a 10-rouud bout and al-ithougbt McGoorty outweighed Dillon by more than 10 pounds he narrowly escaped defeat,' it was only his superior ring generalship that saved McGoorty. Dillon .himself is confident that he will land: the welier-welgbt champIonBhip in the not distant future.
