Memphis 94 New Orleans 87 Birmingham ''83 Atlanta 81 Little nook 80 Philadelphia — Washington New York Cleveland Detroit Chicago St. Lous' * Boston Heavyweights in Poo 1 ' Windup; Young and Taylor Give Action. Stanley McRae ot Luxora won the judges' decision over Dummy McKiiir.ey of Memphis in the main bout at (he Main street athletic arena last night. McRae dcserv- cd the verdict, If one hart to be awarded for such a light, as the Luxora boy did try to fight occasionally McKlnncy apparently clowned his way through tl'.e txml content to take what punishment wns offered without any extra exertion on his part. Some unknown by Ihe name of Chicago Howard LaBrier of New Orleans 31. Louis was slated to oppose McRae but La- Brooklyn Brier [ailed to show up or some- New York thing. Anyway the management Pittsburgh announced that LeBrier had tmoth- Boston er fight this week and since the Cincinnati Monday night bout was postponed Philadelphia until Tuesday night Ihe governing boxing commission of Ihe Unilcd States would not allow him to have two fights so close together. Therefore Dummy was substituting for LaBrier the anoimcer said. Wliere- upon we read in a news dispatch from Sardis. Miss., thai Dummy McKlnncy, who fought here last night to keep another man from having Iwo fights In the same week, fought at Sardis Monday night. And Dummy probably showed more action at Sardis Monday night lhan he showed here lost night as Dummy knocked out his man Monday .'night. Yes. Dummy so the ' boys In the racket say, is known as a "tough boy." Yes, Dummy 1* Touch Dummy left Blythevllle witlioul his reputation for "toimehncss" being mnrrcd ns Dummy did take few socks from McRae nnd hit Ihe floor in resounding fashion only lo bounce up and grinned anil start in at McRne head down and arms folded. And they don't usually gel off^ the floor so quick nnd start back in grinning when McRae ' socks 'em. Dummy spent the evening except for the three limes Ihnl he picked himself off the floor walk ing around the ring, leering at his opponent and sticking his chin on . _to; invite a punch. Yes, he seemed a Plough boy. McRae spent a rather futile nigh • and failed lo show anything in th •way o! fighting ability. He wa bewildered by Dummy's nwkar style and the ease wilh whicl Dummy bounced up from the canvass and came back for more, However that might enslly prove discouraging to a more able fighter than McRae. ? . Seml-Wlndup Bfst By far the best fight of the night was the seml-wlndup with Otto Young, local negro, winning via the kayo route over Gene Taylor, Nashville, Tenn., negro. Tht» ne- groes started off with some fast action and before the first round \vas half over, Taylor knocked Young to the canvass. The local negro's head struck the thinly padded canvass with a resounding thud and Young barely managed to beat the count. Young weathered the first round however and the second was about even with the boys socking hard. Taylor had a style that proved puzzling to Otto while Young did not seem to be any mystery to the Nashville negro. Young's punches began to tell on Taylor In the third round however and the Nashville negro was practically saved by the bell after going down from a series of kidney punches by Young in a clinch. Another barrage of similar punches in the fourth and Taylor went to one knee and stayed there until counted out. The negroes gave some'fast action while the bout lasted. In the opener two negro young' sters fought four rounds lo a drav lor a shower of c,olns fom the audl ence. Because of the small size of th crowd the management announce! that the other bouts scheduled hai been taken off the card. 05 07 09 Chattanooga 05 84 N.ishville 03 85 Mobile 39 108 L.
