Humphries Has Record of 18
Knockouts, .30, Decisions
, Behind Him
The Pacific coast featherweight
titl will be at stake. In Wednes
day's main event at the armory,
Matchmaker Harry Plant pointed
out Saturday. Xd Mackie claims
the title by virtue of a victory pver
Babe Herman, and Art, Humphries
of Everett, Wash., is the boywho
gets this chance 'to dethrone him.
v About .Humphries' ability there
is no question,,, but t wtU , be ., a
novelty to. ate.ligiiLJtaa.. in
watch his work In the ring and to
realize that if there should be any
occasion' for him to' say anything,
it would be ' pronounced with a
typical English accent. Humphries
came by it . honestly., so , the fans
won't hold it against him. He has
lived most of his life in Canada.
Although only 20 years of age,
Humphries has engaged, in. about
70 f(ghts. He can. look back on a
string of 1,5, knocjcouts, 30 deci
sions, and one "victory on a. foul.
Ife, has. fought 14 draws and lost
seven fights, the whole making a
remarkable, record .considering
that-be has met the best men at
Benny Pelx, waa offered r,the
match, but named a figure that
the attendance here, will not war
rant.' Plant is of the opinion that
Pelzs wasn't any, too anxious to
meet Mackie anyway. ,
A9Cording to the belief of Harry
Hansen,, Alapkie's . m a n a.,g e r,
Humphries will be the toughest
opponent that Mackie has been
called upon to meet since his re
turn, to ring, activity. 1.
.Mackie has an easy time. with
the slijggerg,. but., JJuiophctes is
not only a hard hitter, but a smart
flghjLer as well. Just, when p.n op
ponent has solved his style, he
chaoses it. ,
Bt Mackie is going to do. his
best, to retain the title and take it
with him when, he goes to Cali
fornia this summer.
.The fans, are ; looking, lor some
thrills in the special six .rpupd
events,- especially the one in which
HalSharp ,ot Salem and . Jack
Davis .of: Oregon, 4City. .will meet.
Both of them, have clinched their
reputations as battlers with the

them is a guarantee of real action
