BILL Y NELSON, THE SPO
KANE FEATHER, WHO
MEETS JOE BENJAMIN
Billy Nelson, the Spokane featherweight, who meets Joe Benjamin at the
Moose hall smoker Monday night, comes to the Capital City well recommended
as a clever boxer and the top liner o'f Bernie Goldberg's card is expected to
prove a clussy bout. The boys will go eight rounds at 122 pounds. Both Nelson
and Benjamin boxed last night at the amoker held under the auspices of the
Kose City Athletic club in Portland last night.
Seattle, Wash., April 29 Seattle
boxers won four Far Western titles,
Sau Francisco three and Portland one,
at the finals at the championship meet
held here last night.
The battlo put up by Willie Hughes,
California 123 pounder, and Karl liaird,
local lad, was worth going miles to see.
Jt was a real scrap from the first dingle
of the bell until the l'innl echo of the
jangle had died away. After three
rounds of the prettiest mixing seen in
Seattle ring for many moons, the
judges couldn't see anything to choose
between the boys. The disagreement
resulted in a fourth round. At the eud
of this session the judges again failed
in a decision. "Biddy" Bishop, well
known for his ability as a referee then
balked and refused to declare for one
or the other of the boys. It was final
ty settled by "Biddy" flipping a coin,
"Fat" L 'Ileure.tux had an easy time
retaining his title. He fought Bill
Pierce of Seattle and never was forced
to extend himself.
The list of champions follows:
10& ipound Icjass Willie Coulstiug,
115 pounds R. Fnderwood. Multno
mah A. C.
128 pounds Willie Hughes, Olympic
