Washington’s popular Aaron Perry, KO conqueror of Morris Reif last Monday night, comes back in this return bout to battle the former National Boxing Association light weight champion, Sammy Angott. Angott was awarded a split 10 round decision over Perry in their last meeting, and will be favored to repeat. However, a more ex perienced Perry maintains that he will turn the tables and cites the extra session of the odd 11-round route as a point in his favor. "I was getting to him in those last two rounds at Wine's,” Perry says, "and Angott was slowing up plenty. I wanted this fight to be 12 or even 15 rounds, but even the extra round will help. This time I’m going to take him.” “The kid has been asking for a return bout with Angott ever since their last meeting,” Manager Harrv Garsh says, “and he has earned the shot by knocking out Reif in seven rounds. I'm sending-him in there this time to flatten Angott and I think he can do it.” Perry's record shows li Kos, 7, decisions and only 3 losses in 22! professional fights. Since losing on a TKO to Henry Armstrong here last May, the local ooiored youth has made good with KOs of Vie Pignatoro and Reif, and won a unanimous decision over rugged Tommy Riccio. Angott, by way of showing un usual respect for Perry, has been in hard training at Stillman’s gym in New York since last Monday. He will report here late this week Perry begins public drills at the Liberty A. C. gym today at 2, and will work there through Saturday, i Race Bets Exceed Seven Millions By the AiiecU'ed Preee.
