Mr. J. H. Trudgeon has everything now well in hand 1 for the opening carni-! val of the Northern Boxing Association, which iS fixed for Monday, May 3rd, in His Majesty's Theatre. The principal event of the evening "will be a fifteenround professional contest between Tim Tracey, of Wellington, and Jack Griffin, of Greymouth, for a purse of £50. Tho usual percentage of the purse is 35 per cent to the winner, and 15 per cent to tho loser, but Griffin is so enamoured of his prospects that, at his request, the purse has .been divided into £40 to the winner and £10 to the loser. Tra-cey is so well known throughout New Zealand that further comment is unnecessary, but with Gviffin Aucklanders aTe not so well acquainted. Griffin is a brother ot Jim and Charlie of that ilk, who have both made a name for themselves in the roped square, and so far has fought fifteen fights in New Zealand and Australia, ten of which he has won, four lost, and one drawn. He niet Tracey a. little while back in Cnristchurcli, the pair putting up a good go of fourteen rounds, Tracey getting the decision. Since then Griffin is stated to have made considerable improvement, and this being so, the contest should be one of the best yet witnessed in Auckland. In addition to the above, there .will be a novice Bst. 7lbs. tournament, and for this event competitors must r be medically examined by Dr. Brockway, the Association's medical examiner, between Tuesdaj', the 27th inst., and May 2nd.
