Boom in Boxing

Boom in Boxing.

After several shaky starts the boom in boxing seems at last to have arrived. At the present time there are more visiting boxers in New Zealand than there have been for many years, and with the rapid advancement made by our own boxers the standard of boxing is high. Filipino boxers have ever appealed to New Zealanders, who remember the fistic ability of Jamito and Young Gildo. The arrival of another Filipino, Dommy Ganzon, was timely. In his first two matches-for a win and a loss-he impressed by clever boxing and an ability to hit with terrific force. He is the right weight to test out New Zealand's novo-professionals.

Clarrie Marshall, George Allen and Jack Davis, are three of this season's professional boxers who seem destined to go a long way in the ring sport.
