He sJioved and butted continually, several times pushing his opponent through the ropes. At close .quarters the champion would clamp Eogrash to him with one haatl and pound the base of Bogash's skull. Bogash went into the rinjr with two .bruised eyes and by the sixth r o u n d Jus left eye was half closed, 'but this ·lifl not seem to bother him to any ureat extent. ' · . . . Greb had the honors in the first, k e'sth and seventh, taking tho last ramed two stanzas by wide margins fc.nd apparently having the fight weli in hand at th'e close of the seventh only to be foiight to a stand still in the eight and .ninth, then Bogash came in and won in the stretch. Boj;ash captured the second, as well as the last three sessions. There were no apparent advantasa for either in the thivd, fourth, f'.fth, eighth and' ninth. ' " ' Slow First Round.

The second was a warm one. Bogash started- With a hard fight to the head and Greb rushed, each hammering away' with both hands. Bogash was trying- to land one liiircl j fusely. punch and did f put several but never [ right on tho button.' They were in a mix-up at the bell and fought several seconds after the gong sounded. Both worked hard in tho next three rounds, but without any outstanding damage, ou either side. Bo- PHILADELPHIA, 'Oct. 20.-- Panclio Villa, flyweight champi-ori, went out of his division tonight and won the popular decision over Jabex White. Albany, N. Y., bantamweight. White had an advantage of nine pounds in weight, but'his handicap apparently did not bother ' the Filipin-o, who. In tfte oriinion of the majority of the newspaper men at the ringside, had the better of the bout throughout. Villa landed a hard blow on White's face In the third round and at the end of the Tight the Albany boxer's nose was still bleeding.:pro- gash worked his left to the .body ·With success but- Greb had the better of it at close quarters and these j'ounds were even,- Greb was at his best .in the sixth, almost dropping . the Bridgeport scrapper \yith one right to the head. They had one long exchange . in ·which they traded punches, Greb having the advantage. Greb In Seventh. The champion took the seventh by a good margin but in the eighth and ninth Bogash picked up and held the champion even. Bogash came to life in the tenth- landing lefts and rights to. the head and driving Greb Into the ropes with another right to the jaw. Bogash also had the better of the infigjiting in this stanza. Bogash also took the llth rhakii/.g -Greb miss his hooks consistently. Again in the twelfth Bogash landed Imrdcr punches. Grab's only points coming at close quarters. Lou Chester AVlns. ' .

'"Chester had the better oi it all the way and In the eighth'stan- 2a he. llooreci 'Benson, who was not In condition and dead tired, five times. It was here'that Referee Danny Sullivan gave an'-atrocious exhibition. On each knockdown he permitted Cheste'i'- to stand only a step away from Benson making no at- · tempt to send Chester to a corner.. As a result Benson was walloped before he was-ialrly on his feet a f t e r each Knockdown. Chester .weighed , j ~ 1 6 1 1-2 and -Benson 16.9 3-4 pounds. Harry Martahe,, Jersey City welterweight, del'eaiea Ritz-Walters, of Atlantic City, iri the semi-final, a haid battle. Both boys were hard p u n c h - ers and willing mixers.
