The two lightweights meet In a 10- rounder at Madison Square Garden next Thursday. It will be the second garden main event for Ike but the first for Kogon, So Ike will be defending his reputation as a big-timer, and Kogon will be out to make one at Ike's expense.' Williams has stepped into the shoes that Beau Jack vacated wher the Beau took his battle-royal style Into the Army. Williams Is the "house" lightweight, and the Na tlona'l Boxing Association makes the house look good by calling Ike the best American lightweight stil in civilian clothes. Williams has won 42 of'hls last4: fights. Bob Montgomery stopped (he young Trenton, N. J., boy Baseball Standings SOUTHERN LEAGUE W. L.

But Ike has come on to beat men like Sammy Angott, Slugger White, and other good little men. 1 In his first Madison Square Garden main event 'last month Williams cam c up with a tenth-round knockout of Clco Shans. Kogon Is an unpredictable fighter. The hard-hitting boy from New Haven, Conn., has looked very, very good at times. And at other times he's looked terrible. Julie's a clever boxer. He's never been knocked out — never even been Knockd down. And he's ready for a chance to take his place on the main-event whirl and rake in his share of the fat purses.
