This main event bout was a sUillcd match all the way with the hoys scoring blows mostly to each other's head. La to in the second round Davis caught Toledo ou the nose. which in turn it to hleed continually throughout the I'iyht. I-'rom that point on, Davis' main objective was Toledo's nose, which he caiiKht time after time with left jabs to the face. In the early part of the last round Toledo let K« with a. series of blows which eaiiKht Davis in the eye. Both hoys having one special objective developed the match into a real duel. Toledo, with a few seconds left in the last round, scored many a direct hit with his shower of lefts and rights to the eye of Davis. Davis began to hleed so badly the fltrht was stopped with just six seconds remaining- until the end of the bout. Davis wanted to continue the fight, but doctor's orders were that the bout should be stopped. John Sonney, a fast little fighter, won a four-round decision over CM I Coolidge in the seini-windup bout, which could not have been a faster fig-ht if the boys had been on roller Sonney had a slight edge through the first three rounds when he con- nected with plenty of hard lefts to ('oolidgc's head. This didn't mean that Coolidge was idle, for ho threw a series of rights and lefts to make the bout very interesting. Then, in the final round, Cuolldue came back with surprising energy and landed blows which actually staggered his opponent, but this last round spurt didn't help Coolidjye because of the slight edge Sonney carried throughout the fight. The special event was a lightning- fast match between frank Lncclol and Joe M111107. which was a fairly even- fight for the first few minutes of the first round, but Lucelo soon started an offensive which won him. :i. decision over .Munox.
