Swift and Dramatic Finish
Made in Second Round
of 10 Round Bout
JERSEY CITY, Dec. 20 (AP)
Jack Delaney, world's light
heavyweight champion, scored a
sensational two round victory to
night over Bud Gorman of Wis
consin, gaining a technical knock
out with a slashing attack that
ended the fight after one minute,
3S seconds of the second rennd.
It was Delaney's first bid for
honors in heavyweight ranks. He
spotted Gorman 25 pounds, weigh
ing 175 to his opponent's 200, but
put a swift and dramatic finish to
what was scheduled to have been
a ten round match.
Held to even terms in the first
round, and cut about the nose in
the first few seconds of the sec
ond round, Delaney appeared
slated for an interesting bout un
til his sharp shooting right hand
found its mark. A clean smash
to the point of the chin toppled
Gorman to the floor for a count
of eight, another knocked him
down for a ton of five. He came
up each time, but was out on his
feet, hopelessly beaten and cling
ing to the ropes when Referee
Jack Masterly stopped the fight.
