Promoters Knuckle-Rapned WASHINGTON, Feb. 1G — (/P)— The country's boxing promoters were Given a verbal spanking- today by the National Boxing association for not being more aggressive in seeking bigger and better fights. Abe J. Green, NBA president, said in a statement that "title bouts (under the NBA) could have been staged in recent months . . . had promoters snapped out of their lethargy and employed broader vision." He hinted strongly that unless promoters go after top attractions, professional boxing may not keep pace with other sports on a nationwide basis in tho booming post-war period. This promotional lethargy, the NBA head said, has resulted in "actually abandoning bouts to New York," where the NBA docs not have jurisdiction. "Promoters twice missed the bus in the lightweight class," he pointed out. /"Lightweight title bouts with Ike Williams, NBA champion, opposing Bobby Ruffin and Willie Joyce could have been made. "Now it is Williams versus New York's champion, Bob Montgomery, in New York. "Willie Pep versus Sal Barlolo for the featherweight title also could have been signed. Now New York's Madison Square Garden has it because, to a great degree, no one else seemed to want it." The number of satisfied customers on our prescription files is an indication of accuracy.
