the "boys who were playing so hard
and funny-like" up on the wrest-
ling roost .. . The three fems also
happened to walk by an open show-

Christoforidis, the spirited battler
from Greece, won the world light-

by pounding out a 15-round decision
over Melio Bettina of Beacon, N.Y., a
former titlist. The battle, ruled a
title match by the N.B.A., drew 8,499
fans who paid $20,462.
Christoforidis started slowly, but
pounded Bettina hard in the middle
rounds to pile up his margin. The
rugged Bettina, who held the title six
months before losing it to Billy Conn
had an edge in the final four rounds
as the two slugged it out toe to toe.
