BOXING AT 7.30
Amateur Boxing Association versus Imperial Services Boxing Association AT THE ROYAL ALBERT HALL
The match between the Amateur Boxing Association team and that of the Imperial Services Boxing Association should undoubtedly provide one of the richest fight feasts of the year. In fact, it is doubtful whether the Royal Albert Hall will accommodate all the amateur boxing enthusiasts who will want to see this tournament, representing as it does the cream of the Services and civilian amateur boxing talent in the country. On paper the match looks like being a particularly close affair, with perhaps a very slight advantage in favour of the Services' side. In the Heavyweight event the Services' representative is Leading Aircraftman Mark Hart - the 1944 A.B.A. Champion - and as he has already beaten his civilian opponent. G. W. Hill, of the West Ham Boxing Club, he should stand a good chance of repeating his previous performance.
The Services have also got another form winner in Sergeant Ernest Shackelton. who should be able to repeat his last year's A.B.A. Championship win over George Page, of Stone's Boxing Club, in one of the two Cruiser-weight bouts.
Personally, I am looking forward to the Lightweight contest between the A.B.A. champion, W. Thompson, and Private Stan Davis. The pair have met on three occasions Thompson winning twice and Davis once. and I fully expect this bout to be one of the most exciting of the evening. Altogether it promises to be a grand evening's boxing. (W. Barrington Dalby)
