The boys had occupied themselves in the first round with Ihe business of Ihi'lhu; what Ihe other fellow could or coulil mil do. Tiie Initial lound was fairly even. Both bi-jjiiii to open up In the second round atiti Uurlnn's leli. had jolted Byrd comity; in ri couple of times. Tile pair were sw.ipphn blows in clcse. iti the center of Ihe rlns when Hurton frmnrl die rnnse with n perfectly timed rli-lit lo Jlyrd's midsccliou and followed with Q left to the Jaw. From all nppenr- nnces it ivas the first blow that did the damage. The Tampa boy crashed to tr.e floor with a thud. Referee Danehower went through the formality of a count bill il was evident bsfore he started thaj the fight was over. Incidentally it iva; a llllc surprising to find liiirtou packing dynamite in his right when the local boy was considered a southpaw. Sanjy Proves Ciimr. The semt-wtndup wns Ihe besl bout of the evening—not that the contestants were so evenly matched . but due mostly to the gamencss of one Sandy Ridge. The big rounln boy, who iin.i been gp'tiln; h\* nnJ! at L'.ixora of late—and acting as a sparring partner Tor Stanley McRae, still has plenty to learn iiboul • the fislic game but for ring courage he Is still unsurpassed here. Sandy ncled ns receiver for ths uppercuts, jabs and roundhouse haymakers of the long, lanky Blnn chard for almost six round*; brfon finally going down for the last time as the referee raised Bltmirinrd's hand. The more experienced Blau- cherd found Ihe lough one an easj mark for his bw,l b!o-,vs 11:11 \va? probably surprised to t'nul Sand* coming back In for more through five rounds. Our score card show: Blanchard cut in front In even round with his margin increasing In the filth, when he floored £ tvvice. The bell probably saved him in this round. Undaunted Sandy returned to the combat in the sl>:'J and when he was haltered to tlr floor tire second lime, the conn was useless. Sam Copeland made ills ring debut with n smile and still wore : wnn nicker of a smile when he let! . the ring. Copeland wns In too fas company for his start, however, anr decided to leave the ring in the sec ond round. Apparently a couple o: sharp blows to the tody by Prllch ard winded the local boy complete^ or eiss he decided that more exper: ence was necessary before tackiin Prltchard. The first round was fair ly even. Nolan Lambert and Arnold Claylou. local welters, were given a draw verdict by Referee Jack Craig after four rounds of mnlttiij. Lambert appeared out in front until the filial round when he was knocked dov.n for a moment au-i Lambert eked ou! a draw, ft looked like Lambert won by a slight edjo but the margin was not conclusive. Murray Harris and Tom Fraz:c:r. a pair of young lightweights, tons':! lour fairly fast rounds In Ihe opr-ii- er and Ihe draw dccls-losi was popular. Of.wan rc-rntly c-hasrd Catrher Spencer of l!i?.
