-=-==- Boxing Contest at Aberdare. —«_ A boxing contest was held at the Market Hall, Aberdare, on Monday flight, and though the principal event ended abruptly and much too soon for those who wanted to see an exhibition .f really first-class boxing, the pre- liminary bouts provided plenty of ex- citement. The second bout was between Young Norman, Pontypridd, and W. Lewis, Mountain Ash. These youngsters pitched into each other vigorously, but Lewis let out his strength at tho be- ginning, and young Norman won in the second round.—Charley Yeomans, Ponty- pridd. was pitted against Zach Phillips, Aberdare, but Zach failed to turn up, and Dai Davies, Tylorstown, took his place. Yeomans was hailed as the vic tor. Then followed a ten-round con- test between Munroe Granger and Jimmy Welsh. The result was a draw. This bout was followed by a no-decision between Will Rule and Ben Jenkins, both of Mountain Ash. There was some delays between the bouts, but the last mentioned was no sooner over than Brevieres appeared. The band, which had by turns excited, soothed, and charmed the waiting crowd struck up the "Marseillaise" as Brevierers walked towards the ring. M. Brevieres is a fine-built young man, has had a credit- able record, and looked as if he could givB a good account of himself. Brevieres had been received with en- thusiasm, but it was nothing to what greeted Freddy Welsh when he ap- peared on the scene in the khaki-col- oured bath-robe. The two men clinched- at the beginning, and Welsh landed several blows on the Frenchman's face and body, blocking the blows of his el),ponent. Before the end of the third round Brevieres threw up the sponge, his thumb being dislocated. Thus the great fight had ended in a frizzle. The Frenchman had been out-classed from the first. A very large crowd watched Freddy Welsh proceeding from the Boot Hotel to the Market Hall about 9.30. Huge crowds had poured into the town early in the day. Large contingents came from Cardiff and inter- mediate places by train, while there were char-a-banc parties from far-off Ynysddu on the one hand, and Glyn- corrwg on the other. While the contest was in progress, a man paraded the principal streets, bearing a sandwich board, on which was inscribed in bold tvpp. "Christ died for the ungodly"; "And after this the judgment."
