Tnen the hurricane ^really struck— rights and lefts bounced oft Montanez' head and *lpw'y,,..vvtui a kind of sick'. look on his face, he went flown into the ropes; ', :'.',',• He: was too far gone to have sense' enough to take .a count of nine i arid rest. His fighting hsart told-anm to get up and up he came, unable to lilt. his arms. So he just stood there and took it for a minute - and 50 seconds. Armstrong's right siiusned into his cnm ana vnasnsd again. The left landed like fe" trip hammer on the right siae.'of Momantz' face .and the blood lip In a crimson 'fountain. • Down Montanez went again In a tangie .of .ropes and resin. POr t.vo, three; four, five, six seconds lu : pawed helplessly at the canvas with his gloves and then, as 19,151 In- crediole witnesses are prepared to sw«ar; he got up again. Wham, siam, wnam, shin! The hurricane blew again. Morilanez, unaole to get his arms up to punch' or defend nirhseif, just clamped his teeth, tight on his rubber mouthpiece ana took it until tna beil iranj. And 35 he woob.ed his bloody, uncertain way across the ring to his corner the wild roar of tne crowd solu.ed him as a dead giime;guy. To Van practical purposes that round, was the fight. Montaiiir came!.out throwing punches in tne fiftfljbut he never recovered from that beating. He punched liara for • u und body anil oy th; sixth •th had nised a \ielt on Armstrong's ieu eye. But In the eighth round Hurntane Henry blew his man down again. A hard left hook to the lieau started Montanez toward the ;floor and a crjsning. right sent him; the rest of the distance. But the; bell clanged a brief reprieve for i Pedro ana he came out for the' ninth, groggy but still willin" to £ilx it. A left fiook slammed Montanez back into his own corner and once more he was on the roiws sojklnj up punishment. Then Hef- erc« cavanagh stopped It. The customers paid $3j,575 last nignt to trad out— as many of them suspected — whether Armstrongs merciless pace and 112 fignts had bttrned him out. Tne little ne^ro, oruy man ever to hold the featherweight, lightweight and welterweight titles at the same time, answered them with a pair of busy fists tnat thumped out 'no, no, no." In fact, the hurricane never blew i stronger. That left hook camel shooting out of nowhere and always ' landed on the button. Armstrong took, a lacing from uppercuts and bouy punches thrown by one of the stiffest punchers among the little fellows, and came bulling in for more. .Weighing only a little over 139 pounds, Armstrong has a sneaking idea that he can win the middleweight championship from men who woujd be allowed to weigh up to 160.
