Kenosha, Wis.. Dec. 17 Outfought,! dx,rg ng closed,
outpunched and outgeneral in all but;
one of the ten rounds fought, Eddie
Murphy of Boston succumbed to de-j
feat last night in the Coliseum before
the padded fists of the masterful!
Packey McFarland or Chicago. j
Only In the sixth session did the'
Boston boxer show any signs of being
the equal of the Chicctj speed marvel.
Iu this round Eddie cut loose and
landed a straight left flush to McFar-i
lar.d's chin which sent Packey spin-1
n'.r.g at least six feet across the ring, j
Murphy followed this advantage by
strbbiLg Packey with straight lefts
eiid right crosses, j
Against this showing McFarland ,
sjnt Murphy to tbe canvas in the final!
mind with a right hook. The eastern i
boy was up in a jifly and fought back I
f.:imely. although a beaten man and a!
sorrowful looking spectacle as he left!
the squared circle. i
Not alone In the tenth, but also in!
the seventh round Packey had bis'
rr.an beaded toward Queer street, !
when be forced Murphy to cover upj
tt avoid that dangerous right. Mur-j
I'hy in this round complained that Mc-;
J iirland hart landed a foul blow and
the referee cautioned the Chicago
nMller. It was an accidental punch,
for which McFarland apologized.
Atain in the last round, McFarland in
l.ia eagerness to put his man away, j
hi' his opponent low, but the referee!
would not allow a foul. !
Murphy's lefl eye was badly swollen!
and his nose was bruised as he left I
the ring. Packey, except for a bwo1-
len lip, bore no marks of the fray. I
The contest started tamely. Each!
n.nn was careful and content to feel!
out the other. Packey had tbe better
of the first five rounds, because he:
forced the milling and landed cleaner
prnchet.. Both were wild at times and
missed by wide margins.
In the sixth Murphy loosened up'
and brought tbe crowd to its feet when I
he hit Packey with a straight left.
Tbe manner in which he followed up
ti is momentary advantage gave him
a decisive margin for the round. After
