Vast Improvement Noted in
local Lad Over Previous
V Ring Encounter) '
ruggtng like madmen while a
thousand fans screamed hoarse--tyfor
more slaughter. Teddy Fox
ot Salem' and Benny Pelu of
Portland battered each;otber for
, ten rounds at the armcrry Thurs
4a night in the closest, fiercest
Hng hatUe of any that 3ocal fans
eould recall. Referee JTom tpu
titt rave Fox the decision be
cause he outpointed Pelz In most
of the late rounds, although the
Fortlander pounded the local fa
vorite, almost to the point of help
lessness In the final canto, and
had him groggy In the sixth.
Kox Greatly Improved
Orrr Last Time
That Fox -bad Improved since
iHr hattle with Pell, is
putting It mildly. He had learn
ed to block most of those wicked
nppercuts that Pelz depended up
W to win the first fight,; and he
' nmld stamina that enabled
. him to lead the attack in ; the
- arrnelinr seventh, eighth and
ninth rounds, utilizing his reach
to pound his stocky opponent vi-
donslv over the len eye repeat
edly. The eyebrow had been enx
.In the sixth. ; and Fox maae me
wound his target from then on.
1 Fox took the first round by
rushing and Jabbing; Pelz took
the aecond by penning Teddy in
. the corners and pasting him in
dlscriminately. From then until
the sixth it was all Ten, Pelz
ducking to make Fox miss most
of his blows. -
Pel Tears Loose V
In the Sixth Canto i
Benny, cut loose fa the sixth,
after Fox had dived out through
the rones once and slipped to the
canvas a second ttlme. Pels press-;
ed his advantage, pounding Fox
against the ropes nntll s he wan
slightly groggy at the bell. 1
But the recuperative powers ot
youth came' to Fox's rescue and
he came back strong in' the sev
enth, crashing gloves f against
Benny's bleeding forehead; and
he kept It up through the eighth.
In the ninth Fox continued the
same vicious attack, at the same
time spitting out Invectives that
couldn't e heard from the ring
side but could be Imagined. Pelz
came back with four stiff ! Jolts
near the end of the round.;
Prb Takes Advantage "1 I
Of Fox's Tactics r." lis '
-Fox used the wrong-tactics in
the tenth, fighting like a wild
man while Pels eoolly took ad
vantage of his rashness f and
forced him against the1 topes.
There the Portlander, began
pounding Fox mercilessly, I and
Teddy's i face was black and blue
when the referee lifted his hand
fa token of victory. I
The Perry.; Israel-Jackie Kileen
fight was as one sided as the
main event was even. ' The 15
year old youngster who has been
fighting since he was5 J 1 eleven,
pounded Kileen at will for six
rounds, and his own cherubic
face was never marked.!
In the lightning fast ' sixth
round, Kileen managed to hit
.Israel once, but up to that time
he . hadn't landed a real blow.

Champ Clearly Outclassed
in Two Terrific Rounds

By CHARLES W. pDUNKLET
Associated Press Shorts Writer
DETROIT, "July ;25. (AP)
Jackie Fields, "shieklsh appearing
youth of Chicago, won the world's
welterweights championship to
night. Fields defeated' Joe Dun
dee, the tltteholder; on a fool in
the second round of their sched
uled fifteen round contest.
Dundee, reeling and staggering
after twice hitting the floor in the
second round, delivered a terrific
right, hand punch low in foul ter
ritory, a minute and fifty-five sec
onds after the second j round
Fields, writhing in intense ag
ony, backed Into the ropes and
then jackknifed to the floor. His
second rushed Into the ring and
dragged' him to his -corner. He
was in such pain that he was un
able to sit on his chair. He fell
Into the resin in his own corner
while his handlers worked fran
tically over him. . j
To Own Corner
Meanwhile, Dundee, hopelessly
beaten, staggered Into hts own
corner. "He was rocking like a
reed in a heavy wind from the
barrage of punches that knocked
him to the floor in the second
round for the counts of nine and
The second, round had.hardfy
started when Fields cut loose with
a crushing right to the chin that
knocked Dundee sprawling. He
gamely struggled to his feet and
met another barrage that again
dropped him. This time It was
another right that sent him to his
haunches. The champion got np,
backed into the ropes and shook
his head in an effort to clear the
cob-webs from his dizzy brain.
Then Dundee launched forward
with a low sweeping right hand
punch. It landed squarely in foul
territory. Fields was through. He
was unable to continue. He sank
to the floor, turned over upon his
face and rolled over a couple times
before his. seconds could get into
the ring to drag him to Ihe cor
ner. Dundee delivered the foul
when he apparently realized that
he bad no chance of defeating the
youthful challenger famll saving

To Witness Battle
The battu was witnessed by a
crowd estimated at 27,000, with
net rnceipts axouna Siz5,ooo, a
new record for a welterweight
championship contest." The gate
eclir fed the previous high park of
ssg.000 when Dundee won the
title from Pete Lato at the polo
grounds in New Tork in. 1927.
The bout was staged in Promot
er Floyd Fltzsimmons' new arena
at the Michigan state fair grounds,
with Fred W. Green, governor of
Michigan, and other notables in
attendance. It was the first 16
round contest under the new
Michigan boxing law.
Dundee was beaten a few sec
onds after the tight started. . He
appeared to be lacking In speed
and his protruding chin presented
an open target for the crushing
right hand punches Fields threw
at him. The champion's legs ap
peared to 'be wobbly and as he
shuffled to his corner at the fin
ish of the first round it was ap
parent that he was to leave bis

With the start of the second
round Dundee had nothing left
except a heart and fighting In

ran into a right hand punch that
knocked him sprawling. He got
np at the Count of nine, tried to
escape; but Fields, sensing a
knockout, came tearing after him.
Fields dropped him again with
another right. This time he took
a count of seven. When he got
up he cut loose with a low sweep
ing right that deprived him of his
title on a foul. '
The chanrpion had a desperate
time In making the welterweight
limit ot 147 pounds when they
weighed in at 3 o'clock this after
noon. He Just managed to make
the weight, scaling about an ounce
