Boxing CONNELLSVILLE ATHLETIC CLUB LOSES INTERCITY FISTIC SHOW TO CUMBERLAND AMATEUR BOXERS ®- Johnnj Kock Is Taken ittl Loses by Technical Knockout Decision. GIACHETTI BOYS TAKE TRIUMPHS Three representatives ot the Coa- nellsville Athletlo Club scored v'e- tories while Jour were defeated in tnts intercltj boxing show at Cumberland, Md., last alght. A poor ·decision by the Judaea and Illness of one ot the local stars served to prevent the Coker boys from bringing home ihe greater number of victories. In tho bost bout of the evening, Johnny Ghichottl came through with an easy triumph over Frauds Smltu of Cumberlaud. It was the flrst whipping foi the Maryland ;ity ttghter. The two youths battled fiuioualy during the threo rounds. GlachetH won tho unanimous vote of the officials. Jimmy GiachetH outclassed Kid Belfour and scored a- knockout in tho first rouud. Jimmy unleashed a ftood of rights and lefts and Belfour was powerless to defend himself ugaliiat the vicious drives. Several blows to the chin sent him to the canvass. Chln"k Rosano put up a great battle to soore- a victory over Young Stmmomi In another great fight. The Connellsville youtt also got the nod from all of tho judges and the referee. Johnny Rock lost by a technical knockout to Jimmy O'Rourke. The barber had taken the flrst round by a big margin and while ia his corner complained ot a pata in his side. Trainer Billy Carter, who was In. charge of the local boxing aggregation, refused ',o permit him to ilaish the bout. Paul Bolden, local scrapper, lost an Unpopular decision to Bill Sanders. Trainer Carter today (ailed attention to the fact that while all of the Connellsville boxers were forced to w-edgh in before the commissioner, tho Cumberland lepreseiitatives did not. Hia suspicion that the weights announced from the ring for the Maryland fighters were not correct was. substantiated when he forced tho commissioner to have the ecules brought into the ring and this caused Pete Sherman to be idle as his opponent was found to be IS pounds heavier than he. It was announced from tho ring that the Sherman ioc was but six pounds heavier. It Is likely that th.9 Ibcal fighters ·will make another t! ip to Cumberland. Tha results of tho fight follows: Johnny Glachettl, 112, (tonnells-vnlle, won from Francis Smith, 111, Cumberland. Teddy Majicuso, 118. (['onnellsville, lost to Olive, 1 Grow, 123, Cumberland. Paul Bolden, 135, Connellsville lost a vordict to Bill Binders, 134, Cumberland, It was an unpopular decision. Sammy Asto, 120, Connellsville, was beaten by Buck Brady, 1J4, Cumberland, Jimmy Giachetti, 133, Connellsville, knocked out Kid Belfour, Cumberland, 139, in the flrst round. Chink Rosano, 12S, CounellsviHe, defeated Voting* Simmons, 132, Cumberland. Johnny Rock, 155, CouuellsviUe, lost by o technical knockout lo Jimmy O'Rourko, 140, Cumbcvlaud. Rock was taken ill and was tumble te continue after tho flrst fount 1 . rote; Sherman 12G, Connellsville, was to have met Dick Grouse of Cumberland. (Vouso's woH'ht was announced from tho ring at 132 pounds and when Tiainer Cat tor questioned it, the scales wore carried Into tho ring' and it was found that Crouso tipped the beams at 13S.
