Rivers outboxed Callahan in the lirst round and landed sevmral times Bt closo quarters, hut with ^little et-icct. In the iieisohd loiind, Callahan took ithe aggressive, and n*ar the middle of the tjjuiid,,ended thfi bout with a tightswing to the jjaw. It was several minutes before Rivers revived suflicientiy to leave the ring. Both men made the feq,uired weight; 13.3 poimds at 3 o'clock. Except for a brie! period in the secoDd round, Rivers forced the fighting,'Callahan taking two blows to the head and bodr without � �turn, apparently waiting tor the opportunity for. a knockout, which came after four minutes ot fighting. When the blow was delivered, Rivers wai settling; himsclt after a clinch, Callahan's rl^ landing squarely on the ]aw as he turned. Callahan is virtually a newcomer cs a fighter, while Rivers, although ' he lost championship battles to both iV'olgast and Ritchie, was still r*-garded as a^ contender. for the light*-weight title. mm MAY GRAB 11 Calgaiy AlbertAri:' iliilrk.
