Brown, the New York lightweight,
will swap wallops in a Milwaukee

Twice before the pair have met in
short bouts, and each time Brown
has been returned a victor. If the
contemplated go is pulled off we'll
have to string along for Ad to upset
matters in his third effort. Brown

McGill has been trying to get con
