BOMBARDIER DAVIS BEATS McNABB Bombardier Davis, so easily beaten by Wai I Coli-man « tew months back at the now defunct ' Unitty Hall, created a great surprise by his I marked improvement on this occasion. W'rh ' :i liberal use of hit: straight left to the face hu i bailly beat his slow, but plucky opponent, who, In the third round, was down for Tsec through a very nicely executed right io the jaw. The sixth was tho only round any way even. McNabb ! managed to get home it left and right swing that momentarily shook up his cleverer op- I ponent. who sw.ing wildly lor a time, but soon got into his stride again and outboxed his man.
