THE BAJKERSFtELD CALIFORNIAN, WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 25,1933 SPORTS SIMPSON-SIKI BOUT SHOULD BE "NATURAL" Each Headliner Has Been Tested Out Against f Crack Boxers .AS A hallmark oC class boxing •**-fans have two very Important facts to consider in connection with the headllner offered at the Granada theater here tomorrow evening. The first Is that Battling Siki gave Georglo Akes one of the toughest fights he has over experienced and the second Is that Johnny Simpson of Oakland plastered Justin Pasoua. The second fuel Is that Simpson and Slkl are matched In the main event. If this Is not a "natural," in prospect at any rate, then few fights are worthy ot this slang designation. ' A decision over Pascua Is a certificate of merit for looal fans. Any boy good enough to accomplish this end should be able to step with the top flight. Sltcl Had Edge? Many ring-Riders who saw Akes 'und Slkl fight believe that Slkl would havo stopped the doughty little Greek If the fight had continued over a longer period. In scheduwllng this main event for «ight rounds the promoters believe It will hit top speed for Its full duration. Slkl .Is aggressive and tough and can take 'em. He proved that In meeting Akes. Simpson must have taken a few too when he won his decision over Pascua. Slam-Bang Bout • A slam-bang affair should result In . t.he meeting of Sailor Waller and Jock Campbell. Waller has never let the fans down here and he has been sent into the ring at the old arena against some hard-hitters and clever boxers. He is aggressive and hard-hitting and has yet to put up a dud performance. • ' Joe Is Back Joe Fernandez, who had great popularity liere In the old days and Is still Kolng strong, will havo another test fight in meeting Eddie Nolden, of Delano. From a preliminary spot Joe has worked his way up to the special event. ' Two good preliminaries are also on the card. , The promoters announced today that the general admission charge for the fights will be 55 cents. There la a largo block of these seats which are comfortable and provide an adequate view of the ring. Every seat in the Granada is closer to the ring than most of the scats In the big arenas.

Arizmendl, the idol of Mexico City and local Mexican fans, took seven of tho 10 rounds to win an easy decision over the Filipino. Dado was given credit for two rounds, with one, even. Dado, recognized as the bantamweight champion In California, fought at 119 pounds, and Arizmendi at 122 pounds, a weight at which tho Mexican had agreed to meet his opponent. Ho had a difficult time making the poundage, a haircut and "a run around the block taking off tho quarter of a pound that he was found to havo In excess of tho 122-pound limit when he appeared for weighing. The bout lacked the closeness of two previous engagements between the little boxers. Arizmendi won tho first encounter by a decision and lost the second by a close margin. The national boxing magazine, Ring, rated Dado as the bantamweight showing tho greatest promise during tho past year, and gave Arizmendl tho same honor in the featherweight division. After Year of Hard Luck Giant Third Baseman Signs Contract By JACK CUDDY Unlttd Preit Staff Cwreipindtnt TVTEW YORK, Jan. 25.—Jim TJer- •*•" ney, secretary of the New York Giants and by no means; a/'aoftle," sounded husky as he reaa off the note which accompanied Johnny Vergez" signed, contract. Johnny, tho third baseman, had written from his home In Alameda as follows: "In view of the fact I was not so hot last year, I am more than satis- fled with the fair way the club has treated me, and will do anything I can to regain my form of 1931." Just thre'e little linen—but mighty poignant ones, for Big Jim knew why Vergez wasn't "so hot" last season. In 1931 In Oakland, Johnny Vergez appeared just about the finest third base prospect to come up from the minors since Pie Trnynor and Freddy Llndstrom moved Into the big time. But last Benson he played PO poorly and was razzed so much by tho fans, who didn't know the story behind tho box scores, that he finally was replaced at third base by Ollber English. This slump started right after the training season. When the Giants arrived at their I^os Angeles camp, Johnny came down from Alameda all smiles. Ho was the father of a baby buy. Later the team moved north for some exhibition games in the San Francisco area, not far from Alamada. One afternoon, sliding home, he twisted his -ankle badly. Child Stricken ; That same day his only child was stricken with Infantile paralysis. {Johnny's leg Injury prevented his play• Ing tho remaining games in the San Francisco region. On the night of April ", the club entrained for the cast, just a few hours after Vergez j had sent word that his baby was dead. ! Johnny rejoined tho team aftef the | season was under way. He brought j his wlfo to New York and took an i apartment. After every game he would hurry home to his wife, who was on the verge of a nervous breakdown. He couldn't sleep at night, and he worried all day. But he had to play ball. He couldn't put any pep into the game. Was Distraught On tho road It was worse. He was almost distraught, fearful that something might happen to his wife In his absence. He couldn't hit; he couldn't field. His playing became so bad he was taken out of tho lineup and replaced by English. When Bill Terry became manager, he learned of Johnny's plight. Terry took him aside and told him, "Take it easy kid. Don't worry. No matter what happens, you'll bo with us next year." And Terry kept his promise.
