P. H. Ryan (10.6), V.U.C., beat J. K. Menzies (10.8), C.U.C., on a t.k.o.

Ryan was scarcely hit but Menzies took enough punishment to knock out most boxers. He was very game, but knew little about boxing.


Ryan beat Foley (10.6), O.U.

This was the best fight of the tournament, both contestants showing wide variety both in attack and defence. Ryan was an object lesson to his team mates in that he made the fighting from the initial gong. He attacked from the start and, except for the third round, had a sufficient points lead throughout to take a close but very popular decision.

Ryan was awarded the N.Z. Breweries Trophy for the most scientific boxer.
