Add one more hope to the list of local fistle prospects being handled
by two aifferent itabtes. The newcomer is Pet Collins, a lightweight
who mario his debut last week at Roseburg and won' his four-rounder
easily. Collins is being handled by Duke Morrell and Phil Bayes, the
latter the popular Fighting FnU or
these parts years ago. Bayea is high
ly elated over the possibilities shown
by Collins and both he and Morrell

Frizzle-topped Charles failed to
i flatten his ancient foe after hav
ing fcim on the way to a knockout
in three different rounds. The
last three rounds were fought to
the accompaniment of booes from
the crowd.
Judges Frank (Spike) McAdams
and Harold Maroutz scored the
fight the same way, voting for
Charles by a 78-72 count. Referee
Dave Miller found; for the 27
year old new champion, 77-73.
The Associated Press card had it
even more lopsided with an 82-68
point margin for Charles and a
9-4 edge in rounds with two even.
Nearly an hour after the end
of the fight the attendance was
officially announced as 25,932.
The gross receipts were not im
mediately available! as the box
office had not finished their
count. The weather ;was ideal for
the Comiskey park crowd with

Joe a savage beating in the sev

son, won the Class A main event
last night as the roaring runt
season opened at Hollywood
Bowl. A crowd estimated at over
4000 easily the largest ever in
the bowl inasmuch as many were
without seats and standing up
watched the inaugural.
Congdon started tenth in the
field of 12 for the "reverse handi
cap" maincr. and with some ex
pert as well as daring driving
took over the lead at the 10th
lap. He held it from there, al
though both Lou Sherman and
Bob Gregg, the 1-2 favorites,
were close on him at the end.
Gregg started 11th in the field
and Sherman dead last. Sherman
had posted the fastest qualifying
time for the cars, in lf.10 sec
onds, which is .15 of a second off
his track record established last
The debut of Cal Niday, the
Australian champion from Los
Angeles was marred by bearing
trouble. Niday .had the misfor
tune of having the main bearings
in his ear loosen up during his
time trial and that finished him
for the night.
There were no crackups during
the evening, although a number
of the snazzy little buggies "spun
out" during the program.
Trailing the first three across
the finish line in the main event
were Howie Osborne, Gordy Liv
ingston and Shorty Templeman,
in that order. The big run was
a thriller all the way, loaded with
keen competition for the lead and
the other higher spots.
Second best time trial qualifier
was Congdon at 16.12, followed by
Gregg at 16.13. Other results:

Weary, worn and bitterly disap
pointed, 35-year-old Jersey Joe
Waleott asserted he was beaten by
a "sneaky puncher' for the NBA
world heavyweight title tonight.
"I thought I won at least nine
rounds," Waleott declared with
head bowed on his exhaused chest
In his dressinr room at Comiskey
"Charles is not a great fighter."
declared Waleott Then he flashed
his only anger, snapping:
"He's a sneaky puncher. He hit
me coming out of the clinches all
of the time. When the referee
broke us. I stopped punching, but
that dirty fighter kept banging
Waleott waved a swollen right
"I hurt this in the fourth round
and I couldn't use It; handy-like
after that"

Jake Mintz, one of Charles'
four manapers. was so overcome
by the triumph that he collapsed
in the corner when Ezzy was
proclaimed the new champion He
recovered and left under his own
power, after a stretcher had Ivccn
hustled from under the stands.
Charles won recognition as new
titleholder in 61 bodies that are
affiliated with the NBA (National
Boxing association). New York
and Massachusetts are not mem
bers. There will be a mixup on who
gets the real crown because the
British board of boxing control
recently voted to recognize its
winner of the Sept. 6 Lee Savold
Bruce Woodcock as the new king.
Charles may be matched with the
winner at a later date, but that
is still vague.
Walcott's cagey style of a two
step jigging retreat to set up an
off balance opponent for a sneak
overhand right, failed to bother
Charles. This was no bloated
Louis with timing off and Old ige
creeping up in his bones. This
was a young man who moved
inside and whaled away desper
ately to the body.
No shadow of doubt about the
gameness of Jersey Joe can be
cast after this battle. He gave it
all he had which turned out to
be not enough. But he Just would
not go down. That was the story
In a nutshell.
From the 12th on through the
last three rounds the crowd in
the upper stands in left and right
fields gave out with a roar of
booes. They were disappointed
that Charles, their favorite and a
10 to 13 betting choice, was not
able to end it.
