BOXING AT MITCHAM BATHS.
In aid of the Wimbledon and Mitcham Poor Children’s Outing Fund, a boxing tournament was held at Mitcham Baths on Monday.
Fred King (Carshalton) was to have fought Bert Francis (Woolwich) over ten rounds, but Francis was found to be well over a stone the heavier, and King declined to meet him. Instead, he fought Harry Taylor (Tooting), whom he knocked out in the second round. King had plaster over both eyebrows.
In a ten-rounds middle weight contest Pat Mulcahey (Croydon) was awarded
the decision on points over Fred Taylor (Canning Town).
Over six rounds, Young Waterman (Canning Town) outpointed Darkie Benito (Croydon); Tony Smith (Canning Town) outpointed Jack WILLIS (Mitcham); and Freddie LYONS (Mitcham) fought a draw with Jimmy Kelly (Walworth).
