Bouts With Policeman, Grnnian
and McNeil and Williams
The Brooklyn Club will stage its
first Summer boxing show at the
Bungalow Thea'ter next Thursday
night, presenting seven or eight fast
amateur mitt bouts as a part of the
Rose Festival programme.
Promoter Flanagan announces that
his headline events will be three in
number, Involving Larry Madden, the
big copper; Ralph Gruman, the 125
pound Columbus Club sensation, and
McNeil and Williams, the bantam
McNeil has presented two or three
alibis, none of which are particularly
strong, for his failure to meet Wil
liams at the Butler Club smoker Tues
day night. However, the boy has
pleaded so hard for a chance to make
good that it is not likely that Mike
Butler will take steps to have him sus
pended. The Columbus Club lad has
signed to meet Williams and is work
ing out in preparation for the con
flict. Flanagan has three prospective op
ponents for Madden. The firemen
have another big chap, a 230-pounder
from Vancouver Barracks, who Is
anxious to appear, and Bill McNary,
of Portland, ia the third prospect.
Elmer Thorsness, Tommy Tracey's
promising 125 -pounder, has been se
cured to box Qruman, who is the best
man of his weight in the Northwest,
despite his defeat at Seattle. Thorsness
is a shifty boy, with a long reach, and
made a good impression at the last
Columbus Club smoker.
