Cleveland on March 17th were correct

it would he telling no lie. In last nights
fight Paly without doubt had all the hist
of it with tiie exception of thesecond and
fifth rounIs. In the second round La
vinge landed a terriffic right hand swing
over the heart and in the fifth the Kid
landed a straight left hand lead that
caught Daly square in the face. These
two blows were the only ones that were
worth speaking of.
During all the rest of the fight Daly
was all over Lavignc. particularly so
when the Kid started to rush him. As
every time he did Daly fought him to a
standstill and forced the Kid away.
With but one exception every
Lavigne landed Daly always had
return mostly with his left.
Jack certainly has a great left, and did
most of his work with this hand.
Lavigne's most dangerous blow is his
right hand swing for tlie heart or ribs.
Lavigne is a very clever man, but it
seems that the only place he could hit
Daly was with light blows on the bodv.
Last night's contest at the Arena was
one of the most scientific that was ever
hdil in the building, and it would be
hard to find two such scientific boxers
anywhere. Following is the fight in
Daly was tiie first to appear, w ith .Sam
Fitzpatrick, his manager, and Tony
Stannard, and got a royal send-off. A
second later Kid Lavigne, his brother
Killy and Jack Fogerty appeared; they
also got a round of applause. When tlie
Kid stepped in the ring he nodded to
Daly, and Jack spoke to him.
First Round—Daly opened the battle
with a straight left on Lavinge's jaw.
Daly again lands on same place. Daly
leads again, but is short. Lavinge lands
his first witli a right hand swing on the
head. Daly returns with let on jaw.
End of round' this is Italy's

,Second Round—Daly leads, but is
short. Daly lands left on aw. Lavinge
swings right on ribs. Both infight. La

leaves a red mark. Round end- dieinlv
