Clean-Cut Decision State's'Best Fighter' FLINT, May 9.—<#>)— The mythical title of "best fighter in Michigan" claimed for Wesley Ramey of Grand Rapids still was his today by virtue of a clean- cut 10-round decision over Roger Bernard, Flint lightweight, Monday Monday night. After the second round, the result was never in, doubt as Ramey jabbed his left into Bernard's face almost at will, holding his right in reserve for effective use at close quarters. Bernard took only the second round, when he flashed a series of hard rights that Ramey couldn't duck, and the sixth when the Flint boy uncorked some haymakers that might have ended the bout right there, bub didn't. After the sixth Bernard hardly made a fight of it. Throughout, Ramey was able to catch most of Bernard's blows on his shoulders and arms while keeping up a steady fire with his left. In the final round he drove Bernard half way across the ring with a stinging left. In the semi-windup Ace Martin, Martin, Lansing light heavyweight, survived four knockdowns in the first four rounds and then, with blood streaming from cuts around his face and ears, landed a hard right that knocked out Harold Anderson, Flint, in' the fifth. A six-rounder between Freddy Bernard, Flint welterweight, and Joe Misko of Saginaw was called 'no contest" in the third when Bernard, well on his way to victory, victory, fouled Misko. George Quackenbush, Grand Rapids featherweight, scored a two-round technical knockout over Ivan Harburn, a golden gloves champion who was making making his second professional start. Young Zeika, Flint welter, out- pointed Freddy Stevens, fellow townsman, in six rounds and Glen Duel, Flint lightweight, defeated defeated Roy Johnson, also of Flint, in four rounds.
