reach Hamilton the first week in
March.
Eddie Murphy of Boston is in
Chicago and wants a match with
Jack Britton. The Boston light
weight has met both Britton and
McFarland, and says Packey will
easily beat the North Side Irish
man. Howard Morrow of Benton
Harbor and Tommy Gavigan of
Cleveland went eight rounds to a
draw at Windsor, Ont. Gavigan
took a big lead at the start, but
Morrow came back aggressively.
Eddie Webber of Indianapolis
and Phil Harrison of Chicago
traveled ten fast rounds to a draw

Marvin Plestina, an Austrian

A battle between Coulon and
Williams is not an immediate
prospect. Johnny will want to
engage in a few preliminary bat
tles to point himself for a title
clash, and it will be two months
at least before he meets Williams.
Coulon boxes after the Campi
style and Williams should master,
