BOXING IN DUNEDIN

BOLGEIt WINS AGAIN DUNEDIN. Tuesday. In the hardest fight of the local season, Lauris Bolger, of Mataura, 10.6%, outpointed Ken Wright, of Timaru, 10.6V2, in a professional welter-weight contest over 12 three-minute rounds at the Town Hall. The attendance numbered over 3000. Wright had the better of the first two rounds, but Bolger launched a barrage of punches in the third and fourth rounds, in each of which Wright was down for counts of eight. Wright made a great recovery, but Bolger's body punching slowed him down, and in the closing rounds Bolger dealt out fairly heavy punishment, although Wright was still fighting back at the end. Bolger, in his first professional fight a few weeks ago, defeated T. McMullen, on points.
