One of the 33-year-old Corbelfs handlers is seen leaping joyfully into the ring. Inset, Corbett, who was considered (hroush when Jimmy McLnrnin knocked him out in 19.13 ,lo win the welterweight ^wreath, peers 'through one good eye.

Apostoli stopped both (he champion, Freddie Stecle, In n non- Illle affair, and Marcel Tlitl, the 'European claimant, at weight.

If Pinhead can keep his eyes on Pnrdin and at the same lime keep Malone occupied tonight he may vin. but the Irishman is certain to have plans of his o\\n that may upset the circus man's nppte carl. Pinhead will outweigh Malone by nine or t*n pounds, bin the Irishman Is tough enough lo hold his own against the average heavyweight. Another interesting match is in prospect in (lie meeting of Freddie Knickle and Art Perkins. Kntckle, who performed here with considerable success a year or so ago. has been absent from the local ring for •onic time, but if anything he Is expected to bo n better wrestler than when he last showed here. Perkins will undoubtedly count on his deadly flying head scissors with which he vanquished several good opponents here recently.
