Lucca hutted considerably with his head, and Kilbano committed some minor fouls, too, but neither one of them infringed the rules to such an extent as to 'warrant the stopping of the bout. Lucca bad a little the better of go. and broke his right hand in the fourth round. Kilbaue was improv- ing all the time, and with a good re- feree, the boys would have given splendid exhibition.
