Tho fight on tho 27th between tho
two featherweights should bo as de

Thcso two lads, Smith nnd Kcllly, put

that tho go on tho 27th will bo Just
Tho last fight was for fifteen
lounds and was so evenly fought out
that tho referco had to call It a draw.
The next meeting of tho lads will bo

efforts were made to extend tho num-

iWhcn, the. two boys step into tho

n featherweight contest Is arrived at
on a point basis. Tho small fellows

Tho weight Is not there to ndd forco

Tho fnvorito knock-out roulo Is via
tho Jaw. A woll-dollvered punch on
tho point forces tho head back on tho
spine with such violence that tho
Htihjcct operated on at once becomes
ur.consclous and takes no lurther In
