Dillon Puts Cordon Away in Ninth Round TWIN CITY FEATHER KA Y0S BUTTE BOXER FOR NORTHWEST TITLE jBross Earns Clear Decision Over Ranieri; Card Best in Months; Lacy Wins by Knockout; Opener Goes to Draw. Another Gibbons-Collins boxer came through with flying colors at the Grand theater Friday night when Dandy Dillon, Minneapolis flyweight, knocked out Sammy Gordon of Butte in the ninth round of a J2-round main go for the featherweight title of the northwest. The end came rather sud denly, although Dillon had been haying a bit the better of the furious going £or the previous quartet of rounds. A slashing exchange in the middle of the ring ended when Dillon drove a left flush to the jaw which stretched the Butte scrapper his full length on the. canvas. He was up on one knee at the count of four and bided his time until Referee Andretta had sounded "Nine." He was evidently groggy from the smash, and Dillon had no trouble in measuring him for an other to the jaw. Gordon went down in a heap. At the count of eight he made a game effort to get up, but the effort was too much. He raised about a foot, and crumpled back to the prone. If trying could have got him to his feet, there would have still been a fight, but the Minneapolis Dandy's cooly calculated socks had done their work well, and all Gordon's heart couldn't make the bout any longer. The end came after one and a half minutes of fighting in the ninth. Dillon weighed 126 and Gordon 125. Pete Gets Clear Decision Pete Bross earned a clear decision over Marine Itanieri in the eight-round semi-final. In the six round prelimi nary K. O. Lacy ran true to his monicker and looped a sleep producer to Bobby Lambert of Spokane after 30 seconds of fighting. Young Denny and Tommy battled to a four-round draw in the four-round curtain raiser. The main event started out with a round of sparring in which Dillon landed the only two blows worth recording. Gordon began to open in the second and had the better of the exchanges, taking the round by a shade. Dillon evidently decided to take matters into his own hands for he opened the third with a trio of rights to Gordon's head and then For the Last Selling Day of 1922 We Offer these Most Exceptional Values for Men and Boys SPECIAL SELLING OF MEN'S OVERCOATS SftainBrot&srs SPECIAL SELLING OF MEN'S SUITS A featured offering of stylish, durable, practical Clothcraft overcoats at a ridiculously low price.

He had the better of this round, but Gordon was coming back strong after every blow. The fourth and fifth rounds were even, with an alternation of furious mixing and light sparring. Dillon Takes Lead In the sixth and seventh Dillon stepped out into the lead. It was these two rounds which weakened Gor don. He took plenty of hard blows and was swinging wild himself. Gor don seemed to recover in the eighth and fought almost on even terms with his opponent, but Dillon got to him for the fatal smacks in the middle of the ninth. The Bross-Raineri scrap was a revelation as to the amount of punish ment a man can take in the ring and keep going. The marine took every thing Pete had and then kept coming back for more. He was willing to take four punches in order to get one in, and he did, nearly all the way. Pete stood up straight. His superior boxing ability saved him from Ranieri until he had slammed enough at the marine to slow him up to where there was little danger of stepping into a fast one. Pete's left was his best bet and he launched pile driver swings which caught Ranieri time and time again squarely in 'he body and face. But even Pete, who carries a knockout sock, couldn't tumble the Tx-leather jneck off his ( pins.

Pancho Villa Goes Out of Class to Beat Terry Mar tin, Banta m Fighter Filipino Gets Decision in Bout Which Keeps ^ Gotham Crowd on Its Toes ; Flyweight Champion the Aggressor. New York, Dec. 29.—Pancho Villa, American flyweight boxing champion, a ^ain went out of his class to night to defeat Terry Martin, Providence bantamweight, in a sensa tional 15-round contest at Madison Square garden. The Filipino received the judges' 'decision after a bout that kept the crowd on its toes from start to finish. Villa's title was not at stake as Martin weighed 1151-4, more than three pounds over the flyweight limit. Villa scale at 111. Villa Regular Cyclone. Villa took the aggressive from the start, boxing in characteristically cy clonic fashion, but he found Martin willing to swap punches. The Provi dence bantam landed several hard body blows in the first round but was swept to the ropes in the second when the Filipino launched a terrific body at tack. Both mixed freely in the third. Villa sending Martin back on his heels once with a smashing left hook. Villa hammered Martin about the ring in the fourth, opening a cut on his rival's nose, but the Filipino was sent staggering back with a left swing that connected on his jaw. Mairtin pum melled away at Villa's body in the fifth and the sixth was a slam-bang affair, both mixing furiously with the Filipino landing effectively with both hands to Martin's head. Martin In Distress. Both swung wildly in the seventh, but in the eighth Villa apparently had Martin in distress as he landed several smashing left hooks to the head. Mar tin came back strong, however, at the the end the round and punished Villa severely about the body. Honors were about even during a lively exchange in the ninth. Martin forced Villa to the defensive with a torrific two-fisted attack in the tenth. The New Englander landed hard blows to the body and rocked the Filipino with stiff left jabs. Villa ontboxed his opponent in the eleventh and twelfth, neither boxer landing ef fectively in these rounds. Villa smashed both fists to the head in the thirteenth, sending Martin partly through the ropes with a left fcppefrcut. Villa peppered his rival about the head in the fourteenth, ab sorbing several stiff body blows in re turn. They mixed furiously in the final round, Martin offsetting Villa's stiff jabs with smashing rights to the body. Villa was the aggressor in most of the fighting. Dundee Beats O'Brien Milwaukee, 'Wis..
