Minn., took hla sole round ot the six round bout with Carl Krleser, Mason City, by a fairly wide margin. Whether he was fouled badly could not be seen by tho n:fere« or officials because of the position of the boxers when the blow w«« otruck, but to all appearances It was low. Nelson was given a two minute rest and the round TWS credited to him. The baa punch came after Krieger had carried Nelson thru * first-round draw much after tho manner of a man handling a sack of potatoes. Nelson tried his old tactics of carrying the fight from the flnt. Krleger was coul enough to push Kelson away In his John L. Sullivan style and wait for the beef- killer to wear Mmself out. Nelnon worked well after the questionable blow and helped his lead In the round. He landed several clean blows near the clone of the round and forced Krleger to come out In the third to tap Nelson's Jaw wllh several Jabs to. order io take the round. Nelson stayed In cloae enough during the fourth round so that Xrteger was helpless with the Austin mauler's style of Inflgbt- Ing. Tho exchange of race tapping was about equal for the pair In both the fourth and fifth rounds. Krieger was slowed up by being careful with his blows which were aent downwards often by tho ducking oC Nelson himself. Nelson was landing blows during both rounds. Xrteger used his lift on Nelson In the final round .to good advantage. Tho the Mason City boxer carried the last round, he could get nowhere with the rolling tactics of the Minnesota meat boy. Krteger toolc tho third and last rounds and, drew the others wllh the exception ot the second. He. piled up enough points to give him the bout regard- leas of the Questionable blow which -was evidently unlntentlal and not serious. JOHNSON-GARCIA Substituting for Alex Qetta, Manly.
