Boxer Brower KOs
Chicagoan in Two

emu.

Arnie Brower has picked up the
nickname "Tuff Arnie Brower"
and after two rounds with Chi-
cagoan Eddie Dembry last Satur-
day night, it was apparent why.
In January alone, he stiffened
two opponents—a comeback from
his unsuccessful first fight in De-
troit at the State Fair Grounds.
Improving with each outing, the
Jewish Center physical education
instructor showed the careful tutor-
ing of veteran trainer Al DeNapoli.
Round one started out to be a
debate. Dembry went out talking
to Arnie but his remarks brought
no replies—just powerful left hooks
and right crosses to the head.

In round two. Brower came
out and took charge from the
bell. His speed with both hands
brought sighs from the more
than 1,300 fans at the Commu-
nity Arts Building of the fair-
grounds.

The end came when Brower man-
euvered Dembry into the ropes and
lashed at him with both hands.
He hit Dembry with such a power-
ful straight hand that Chicago's
light-heavyweight was too stiff too
fall even though he was out on his
feet.
The referee had to step in and
stop the fight.
Promoter Ernie Clark said he
plans to use Brower again Feb. 25.
