 - Eight Bouts Sclicdnletl Gloves' Champs Meet at...
Eight Bouts Sclicdnletl Gloves' Champs Meet at Garden Eight current state Golden Gloves champions will be among amateur boxers participating in an eight-bout show tonight at Madison Square Garden. First bout begins at 8. Heading the list are open division titlists Alton Colter, Wallace Brooks, Al Robinson, Crosby Fullbright and Jack Morton. Morton, a middleweight from Tucson, is the only one not from Phoenix. Champs from the novice division include Ed McGruder, Rudy Martinez and Jimmy Jones. Matches for Colter, Brooks, Fullbright and Robinson will serve as important tuneups for the National Golden Gloves Tournament March 15-19 in Kansas City. The four 'l - J Mark ALTON COLTER Open Titlist qualified for the event by winning regional titles earlier in the month at Los Angeles. Colter's foe tonight is Mike Lopez, aggressive 130-pound Tucsonan who has worked closely with Paco Flores, the classy welterweight judged best boxer in this year's state tourney. Brooks, a big puncher for a little fellow (115 pounds), shouldn't have much trouble with Tony Porter, a willing competitor but not half the slugger Brooks is. Fullbright should have his hands full against Jimmy Jones, 135-pounder who has progressed rapidly by working out with Colter. Robinson, stringbean bantamweight rated one of the more polished boxers in the Golden Gloves tournament, faces Robert White. The muscular, mustachioed Morton rules a slight favorite over McGruder, lanky 155-pounder who does well against tough rivals. McGruder will have to be at his best against the solid-hitting Tucsonan. Rudy Martinez, the novice flyweight kingpin who never failed to put on crowd-pleasing battles during the recent state tourney, should be in for another of those windmill tiffs against Manuel Perez. Other bouts match Sam Pinkney against Carlos Medina and 0. B. McEwen against Dave Pinkney, Sam's brother. Sponsor is the non-profit Boys Athletic League, which provides sports programs for underprivileged boys. LEADER OF THE MONTH PHOENIX DISTRICT; I """" j tsajs- , IRA POORMAN
