Large Crowd Expected to Storm
Intramural Building for
Fight Program.
Tonight the Michigan boxers will
put on one of the best shows in the
history of the sport on this campusi
when they battle out the final C
matches of the all-campus tourna-
ment. The boys that will start in
the eight bouts that are on the
card are survivors of the semi-
final rounds that were held last
Friday night, and judging from the
decisive wins that they turned in
the fights tonight will be the best
scraps that the tourney has ever
Four technical knockouts were
recorded in the bouts Friday and
indications point to a possibility of
some K. 0's. this time that will not
be of any technical origin, but
rather from the dynamite that the
leaders carry in each of their mits.
Let Philbin has produced a clever
crew of leather pushers this season
and while good boxing is evident
they also have an ability to land
punishing blows.
Advance ticket sales have dis-
played the fact that a larger crowd
will be present tonight than any
other boxing show has ever drawn,
and new arrangements have been
made to accommodate the large
crowd in the bleacher seats erected
on the ,main floor of the Intramural
building. With the new system
every seat in the house will have
the advantages of the ringside.
IHirata ,o Face Ando.
Hirata and Ando will take the lid
off the show when they go three
rounds for, the flyweight title. Both
boys have shown much improve-
ment in the last few weeks of
training and they will supply most
of the speed of the evening, as
they tip the scales at about 112
pounds and throw a lot of gloves
per minute.
Jack Yuen and Pete Morgan in
the bantam division are carded for
the second bout of the evening.
Yuen has held the title for two
consecutive years, but this time he
will have the toughest battle of his
career when he meets Morgan.
For the third bout on the card
Dave Gallup will defend his fea-
therweight crown against Pat Mc-
Bride in what appears to be one of
th feature matches of the evening.
Pat came through the semi-finalsF
