Sanders Boxing Bout Features Tony Martin

A new sport was introduced, to Sanders Theater last Wednesday night when the hallowed hall was temporarily converted into a boxing ring for a three round exhibition bout featuring Tony Martin, now of the Coast Guard, and Mike Potkonjak, of the Harvard V-12 Unit.

Martin is holder of the number two position in the National Boxing Association ratings in the middleweight class, and Potkonjak has twice held the Golden Gloves championship in middleweight bouts.

The match was the climax of the entertainment presented to the V-12 Unit in its first smoker. Other minor bouts were on the card earlier in the program matching V-12ers against each other in both boxing and wrestling, while a novel note was introduced in the bout between a wrestler and a boxer.
