FIGHT FANS WANTED MURDER
Winner of Bout at Fargo, N. D., Com
pelled to Knock Out His An
Many old-time lighters nro worried
lest tho mitt game degenerate Into a
pink tea and chiffon proposition.
However, n battle was pulled off In
Kargo, N. D not long ago, that would
have satisfied the most bloodthirsty.
A light had been staged between Lubo
Safro, u clever welterweight of Minne
apolis, nnd an unnamed fighter ot
more or less ability.
It took Safro one round to feel out
his opponent and In the second stanza
ho waded in and In n short tlmo bad
the Unknown at his mercy nnd cleanly
knocked him out In the second.
Kargo fight fans want their money's
worth nnd howled for more. They
wanted more than a knock out; they
were unxUnis for murder. It didn't
particularly matter to them which
fighter was killed, they wanted action.
To satisfy tho crowd tho manage
ment Induced the lighters to go back
In the ring. In fact Safro was told ho
must continue the fight or there
would bo no money forthcoming.
Safro was furious to think that there
was u chance of being beaten out ot
his end of the puiMi ami after tho
fighters had been given u few minutes
rest, thej reentered tho ring.
Safro was master at nil times and
after fiddling uroiiud for n few sec
onds sent oNcr u punch that carried
with It full strength of his powerful
shoulders and scut the Unknown clear
through the ropes and Into the strug
gling and howling spectators. Ho was
so far done for, that there was no
chance for further fighting. Tho fans
