This Is the first offense of this nature
that has been brought to the atten
tion it the State Athletic Commis
sioners, and they lost no time, after
learning definitely from the referee
that Sabay was guilty of the charge,
of passing the heaviest sentence in
their f power. The offense was in a
bout with Pete Collins. The tide
turned against Sabay and he bit his
opponent in the shoulder.

him, beat Frankle barns' lnto-snbmls-slon

onds tossed a: towel In , the ring and
the balance of the seven inen who
were trying to advise hltn; clamber
ed through to "give - the little fellow
assistance. v S
Frankle was. beaten long before the
gong -had sounded for that closing
round. With blood .streaming from
his face, right eye cut open and his
fighting heart gone, the Oaklander
refused even to reply in the fifteenth
and sixteenth rounds to the short arm
iolts that Murphy was handing him.
Hammered around the ring,-there was
no question as to the final outcome
and it took all the encouraging words
of his advisers to keep Burns going
as long as he did When he went to
his corner at the end of the fifteenth,
be looked very much as if he would
like to have a rest and there was an
appeal on his face before the seven
teenth. Murphy, already sighting victory,
met Burns with a wicked rush in that
last period. Frankle tried to shield
his face with his hands, but they
were- no protection and as Murphy
rained in lefts and rights that rocked
the, Californian's head, Burns fell to
the canvas. He was up in three sec
onds, but was no faster than the to
wel which acknowledged defeat. Ref
eree Jim Griffin stayed Murphy's hand
as he was about to land another
punch and the bout was ended. j
Ac-orriin? to Griffin it was a left to
the jaw planted by Murphy in the
sixth round that was the turning
point in the bout. The blow was
ouestionablv a hard one. spinning the
Oaklander half way around but the
battle proceeded so evenly for a time'
that it wa. hard to see which of the
pair had the advantage. As a mat
ter of fact, it was the systematic
beatine that Murphy administered in
scientific style that took the heart out
of his opponent and weakened him
until he could go no further. I
It was a fast pace that Murphy set

a congratulatory nature and others of

Palzer wants a return match, and
can get it under certain conditions. He

remain here and take on any heavy
weight picked for him, as he wants to
fight himself back into the contending 1
position and get the return match July
He must fight himself back into a
j contending position, however, so that
he will be a good card again.
McCarty was a prominent figure on
the streets today. His size made him
especially noticeable, while the throngs
from' the very start and both boys
were tired at the close, although
Burns weakened more easily than did
the Easterner, possibly in part from
the loss of blood be suffered.
