snuffed him out in surprising

Cricks In Necks
It was a weird battle, probably
the strangest sight in all the bi
xarre history of heavyweights
The fighters were so high above
the ringside spectators that there
were cricks in necks before the
first round was over and they so
completely filled the foot ring It
was scarcely possible to look any

eye falling upon one or the other
The first round was hot and
thunderous, full of punching, as
the super-dreadnaughts of the dl
vision lately created by William
Muldoon, high commissioner of
the New York State Athletic com
mission, thundered about the
ring and raised the resin dust in
clouds. There was an expression
of grim determination upon the
wide expanse of features of Car
nera, while Campolo seemed
pained, and his big nose wiggled
a bit in complaint as the huge
Italian took his vaunted right

couple of dozen of those, and
sank to the canvas.
