BRANNIGAN v. SPARGO International Featherweights at Melbourne To-night [Newspaper Article] — Arrow — 2 September 1916
BRANNIGAN v. SPARGO International Featherweights at Melbourne To-night Patsy Brannigan is to be the first of the recently-arrived American team to show on this side of the world, for to-night, at Mel bourne, he is to face the local nine-stone champion, Bert Spargo. In view of the great popularity the cedar toppci little American enjoys in this State, I think it would have been wiser on Mr. Baker's KILLED IN ACTION. Acting-Corporal H. A. H.

StilL if he can more than hold his own against Spargo his meeting here, with Hill, Simpson, Geikie or Godfrey should the latter get away with Sullivan, later on, will attract a fine house. Patsy was born at Pitts burgh, Pennsylvania, on May 8, 1888, and has been in the game since 1904, starting, evi dently, in Tils sixteenth year, and having spent ...
NEXT MONDAY NIGHTS CONTESTS GOOD SPORT PROMISED. [Newspaper Article] — Arrow — 2 September 1916
NEXT MONDAY NIGHT'S CONTESTS GOOD SPORT PROMISED. If I mistake not, next Monday night's contest at the Sydney Stadium locks like being oC a vigorous and exciti.ir; nature. The main event is to b: a 22-minute-round battle between that tou;;h. came and hardhit ting pair of welters. Fe.-nand Qucndrcux of France, and Owen Cairns, of Queensland. The rrcn arc in splendid condition, and, having acted as sparring partners for each other, should know the twists and turns to a nicety, and will, as a result, supply an interesting bout. a 10-round draw last Monday niiht. =re to sup ply the I5-rounder. They are hound by articles of agreement.to make 11.6 ringside une'er a sub stantial forfeit. Their respective weights on Monday last were : Widden 11.3. ard Foran 11. 6J, and as the latter would be all th; better with a pound or so off. he should run no risk of paying the forfeit.

YOUR ASSISTANCE NEEDED [Newspaper Article] — Arrow — 2 September 1916
YOUR ASSISTANCE NEEDED A few pounds is needed In a very good cause, viz., to secure a pony and trip (or that ster ling little chap. Corporal Stead, whose life was saved at the front by good old Battling Taylor. Little Stead is still suffering from nerves, and finds it hard to get .round, to say nothing of making a living for his wife and two little children, but in possession of a trap he would improve his position very materially. I have £11 already in hand, and with about £9 more we should be able to send the plucky little fellow on his way rejoicing. Surely I will have no difficulty in collecting this amount. Donations, no. matter how small, will be grate fully acknowledged.
LAST THURSDAY'S MATINEE [Newspaper Article] — Arrow — 2 September 1916
LAST THURSDAY'S MATINEE There was a large crowd at the Stadium last Thursday afternoon, when a short, but very bright, programme of vaudeville end boxing items were greatly enjoyed. Fernand Quendrenx leathered away at his countryman. Peter Jackson, who must be made of exceptionally tough material, for be took the former's famous heavy smashes without flinch ing. Then came one of the very best exhibition bouts I have ever seen at these mid-week re Smith and Owen Cairns, the Queenslandex. It was great, and if Cairns had come with a big American record he would not have . given greater satisfaction. He is the goods without a doubt, ind I would not be surprised if he won' the welter title in the very near furore. Les Darcy showed great speed and condition in a three-rounds' Bpar with Joe Kane, .whose antics towards the finish were most amusing, Artie Magirl and Sid Francis sparred two very good rounds, Francis showing, marked im provement, so much so as to make one wonder why he is not ...

DAVE SMITH v. ART MAGIRL Australia v. America at the Stadium To-night [Newspaper Article] — Arrow — 2 September 1916
DAVE SMITH v. ART MAGIRL Australia v. America at the Stadium To-night Many weeks of constant training under the capable handling of Patsy Burke Is sufficient to guarantee that the American middleweight. Art Magirl, will be in the pink of condition to-night, when he is to appear in his first Australian contest, his opponent being ex-champion Dave Smith, who having recovered from the effects of his last battle with Les Darcy is also in great fettle. Many American feribes have had kind things to say of the visitor, who, when in the United States was a welterweight, very little is known of his actual ability. Still, a fortnight back, in an exniDition spar witn fritz Holland, he gave one the impression .that he was of the Al brand, but in opposition to Demlen a week later he was anything but attractive. The fact of Demlen being much the lighter might have caused Artie to be a little lenient. I prefer to think this, and give the American the benefit of the doubt by gauging him only on wha...
FORAN AND WIDDERS A DRAW [Newspaper Article] — Arrow — 2 September 1916
FOR AN AND W1DDERS A DRAW A finer built pair than Les Widders, 11.3, and Larry Foran 11.6], would be hard to find. Their mission was a 10 two-minute round bout, for the purpose of deciding which of the two was to be Henri Tyncke's first opponent in Australia. By clever feinting Foran caused V/idders to frequently, miss with left attempts in the first round, but bringing his right round with crashing force Widders scored three times to the head, and did the better work in the opening round. The lighter man looked a winner in the early part of the second session, when he uppercut a Fnorl ripht In thr chin, switnf ihf w^annn tn the car, and ripped it to the body. But Larry's right swing immediately came in reply, and then at close quarters each swung mighty right thumps to the ribs. On breaking away Widders reached the head with his right. In the third round Foran's stock went up with a jump. At long range and in close he scored freely with eaoh hand. A left swing to the chin near the ...

O'MALLEY (11.41) DEFEATS DEMLEN (10.13). The twenty two-minute round - contest, be tween Tom O'Malley and Henri Demlen, after going the full journey, was won on points by O'Malley by a wide margin. Frequently he went within an ace of putting the Belgian down for the full count, but the latter's fine condition and rare pluck enabled him to quickly recover and fight back with renewed vigor. ? Jimmy Hill has signetf to meet Ben Palmer at the Sydney Stadium at 9.8 ringside. Fritz Holland has wisely decided to have a spell from active Bcrvice, and daring the next two or three months will devote all his time to his physical culture, boxing, and eeneral gym

SID GODFREY v. SID SULLIVAN Gritty Featherweights in Return Match at Brisbane To-night [Newspaper Article] — Arrow — 2 September 1916
SID GODFREY v. SID SULLIVAN Gritty Featherweights in Return Match at Brisbane To-night Our Brisbane correspondent states th.it Wave Gcikie. owing to having to go into camp in connection with his military training, the hard 1 hitting young Qucenslander will be unable to fulfil his contract with Stadiums Limited and meet Sid Godfrey at the Brisbane Stadium to night, consequently his place will be filled by another Sydneyslder in the person of Sid Sullivan. These little men met on July 10 at the Syd ney Stadium, and put up one of ttie best con tests seen there. Sullivan had a shade the better of matters at the end of the twenty rounds, which were of two minutes each: but the decision — a draw — met with a storm of ap plause, many present wno ncreea mat auny n»o a small margin in his favor expressing the : opinion that separating so fine a pair would have been a pity. Now. if they can only do | as well this time the sports of Brisbane will enjoy a treat. Taking everything into considera...
HARRY DENHAM OUTPOINTS GEORGE SHALES [Newspaper Article] — Arrow — 2 September 1916
HARRY DENHAM OUTPOINTS GEORGE SHALES Even though he was declared winner over George Shales In trie six round bout list .Mon day night, the clever flyweight, Harry Denh«m, did not show us anything like his true form. In evasion he war all that -could be desired, excepting once, . when a' left smash catching him on the mouth, put him down heavily, but he failed to do sufficient in attack after re ceiving this punch. In the first round, after retreating nicely from the French boy's swings, Harry returned with light, but point-scoring lefts to the nose, and ere corners rang, swung with all his strength a right to the jaw, and cleverly ducked a right which meant out, had It landed. Dcnham scored points for defence during. the second round, and also got home a few light taps with his left, but after being knocked down in the third, as already described, be was much too careful, hence the reason of the de cision in his favor being met with so much disapproval.
