There are many articles about boxing matches in the old papers, and I usually just skip them. I started reading this one and right at the start was intrigued by the idea of a band playing between the bouts. I also found the idea of a match between a wrestler and a boxer, each following the rules of his own sport, quite fascinating. Overall, it seemed like a pretty good day of entertainment at the First of July sports.
