Judge's Decision Fails to Stop Boxing Battle in Boston Arena BOSTON, March 15. (UP)—Big Johnny shkor slopped Tami Mauriello In the eighth round at the Arena last night, precipitating a miniature ring riot and 1 later guerilla warfare among -henchmen of the two heavyweights. Shkcr, a.blond giant who wa s a 3-1 underdog, achieved one of the biggest, upsets In New JSngland heavyweight history by giving the highly-touted Mauriol|6 such a iijoody battering that a commission physician ordered the bout slopped before Tami of New .York could answer the tell for the cighiji rqu'nd. ., ;.",.-'• '. ' When shkor was E'w'arded/vte- tory on a technical knockout, Mau- rlello—who last lost to •champion Joe Louis on a kayo'in the' first vcund last Sept. 18—was' a mass of blood from forehead to thin.' Pat Tami was Weeding copiously from gushes above and below His left eye and from the corner'of Ills right eye. With smashing straight right j. chkcr opened a Hvo-inch cut ovet Taint's left eye in the first two rounds. Then, with a stabbing left, ho kept jailing M.uiriello, never letting him get set to throw ins tight—and meamihile opening the corner of his right eye. Mauiiello ran amok when the Soul was stopped. As the crowd slormed the ring, and as Shkor came out of his corner to shake hands with the beaten New Yorker, Mauriello tried to plunge out of his corner to continue the fight. Pour handlers and three uniformed police tried to hold him. Thou«li they managed to back him against the; rcpns. infuriated Tami managed to kick Shkor. Then he 'broke loose and landed a looping left hook on Shkor's- chin. This infuriated • Shkor. He charged .in. But by that time the rhi" was tilted with policemen. He was accompanied dov:n the ring steps while Mauriello was slinking his fist from the opposite corner and yelling: "I can lick the bum with one hand." As the fighters proceeded lo their dressing looms in the basement of the arena, a policeman escorting shkor wus slugged by Maurlelio admirers, and a» trainer for Shkor wa s chased from the building. Lou Shiro, manager of Mnurielio. had a torrid argument with Johnny Budklcy, shkoi-s pilot: but noliui; nitcrfercd before lists coultf be tossed.
