High River, Feb. of his flight with Eddie Marino, .Cove fairly smothered" the little Italian fighter with rights and lefts, until Johnny Keid, Marino's manager saw that there was a chance for Ma. rino to win, so he jumped into the ring and stopped the fight to stop Ma- rino from further punishment, and to save him from a sure knockout. In tackling Louie Long, :Cove is running up against the toughest pro- position that he has ever had to go against. In all of Loug's fights, win or lose, he has given the public a great run for its money. Long has been beaten but it took the best in the country to do the trick. These boys are even- ly matched and it will prove to be the best thing in the boxing-, line that has ever taken place in Alberta.
