O. Brennan of Detroit and Young Al Ross of Leth-bridge battled ten rounds to a draw, in the prettiest boxing exhibition ever staged in Lethbridge when they met at the Majestic theatre Inst night, ft was a figtit �from the first to the last gong, with more action than has ever been exhibited in any ten rounds of milling the fans in this part of the world have ever seen. Fans were delighted at the fine showing made by the focal favorite whose colors had been somewhat lowered by his defeat at the hands of Phil Harrison of Chicago here a month ago. Ross Come6 Back The bout last night was a slashing ;tffair. Boss was in 50 per cent holier condition than he exhibited in the >larrison bout, ami he showed the results of bis more careful training. He assimilated any punishment , that, Brennan could semi his way, and brought, the house to its feet in the seventh "when Brennan rushed him to the ropes at the side of the ring* and xdanted rights and lefts lo his jaw. *( looked for a moment as if Koss' finish had come but he came up smiling' and the fans cheered. Ross' loading last night was not up to the usual mark. He seemed to he at. u loss to find a way inside the Michigan hoy's guard, but in the infighting he more than held 4*ls own, and in tin's May counterbalanced what gain Brennan had in*the leading and outfighting. , Brennan Fast And Brennan was all that, had been said of him with the exception that, ho was not in (ho shape he might have been. It was here *hat lie shoved up differently to Harrison who was cool as the proverbial cucumber in .the ringv-"But Brennan can box. Anu his footwork at times last night was dazzling. .He kQpt away from Koss' long left pokea and came right Imok to the spot, every time. He can fight with both hands, and knows how to take care of himself, though his punches.at; times lacked much in the way of steam. New Rcferefi There are some who thought Brennan should have been given the decision. Probably he did show up bolter On points. lie scored oftener, but Boss did heavy work in the infighting which left 'little between them, and .lack Dohorty's decision was' generally popular. Doherty, who has done u good deal of ring work In his day, officiated as third man in the ring- in the place of Jmf Foley, the old .standby, who was unable, to leave his ranch at Milk JUver owing to the severe weather. Doherty showed that he knew the game,, and though he was a little slow in breaking the boys at limes Ids work was very clean. The hoys gave him no trouble, and the fans remarked afterwards tluu. they had seldom seen such a clean bout. Hammer and Tongs The mill started off with fierce slugging with Brennun getting home of-tenest and it looked as if another Harrison was on deck*. The pace was lightning. Towards the end of the round Koss gave hack some hard ones in the in-fighting. The first was even. The second was Brennan's by a\ shade, but Koss Was working hard every .second of the /way. Brennan showed catlike speed. The third was even. Koss didn't do any backing uway this fight, and it was noticeable by the third round. Brennan's fast footwork however hud Koss missing and overbalancing. The fourth round was slower and even, Just after the fifth started the boys mixed it and Koss slipped, both going down, Brennan on top. They got up and shook hands and went to it. Koss slipped in a right, and at the close Brennan came back with a glancing left off Koss* jaw. A Rough Passage The sixth round was the roughest passage of the whole show, and the fans got more action in that one round than they do in lots of ten round fights. Right after the gong the boys came together in a clinch. They broke away and for thirty seconds they stood toe to toe hammering each other with rights and lefts to the body in a manner to get to the heart of any fan. Brennan broke out of the- luixup. Koss' blows in the Exchange counted but Brennan came back and slipped a couple to the head. The round was slightly Ross. In the seventh the Michigan lad rushed Ross to'the ropes and showered in rights and lefts to jaw. They didn't phase on Ross who came out of it smiting, and for the rest of the round, worked as hard as evec / The eigluh, ninth, and tenth rounds wore all hard fought. Koss had a shade in the eighth, getting his right home on two different occasions. Brennan shot a left, to the Jaw while rushing Ross. Both employed rushing tactics towards the end of the bout in the hope of finding the weak spot in the other's defense. The last round found both boys working hard but unable to open up anything disastrous. Brennan landed the cleanest blow of the round just before the gong. The boys shook hands arid Doherty raised both their arms as a signal that the fight was a draw. Josh Was There Josh Hemhorne, the noted announcer of Calgary came down for the fight, and did tu# honors in (he ring with his usual .eclat. He was highly pleased with the bout. 1V1. V.
