When the Varsity and Freshman boxers meet Springfield and New Hampshire tonight, the sixteen bouts will provide one of the best cards at Cambridge since boxing was recognized as an intercollegiate sport.
The Varsity goes into the ring with a flying start, having the bouts in the two lightest classes won by default. Exhibitions in the 135 and 145-pound classes are being fought to bring the total up to eight, and aside from this initial advantage, for the Crimson, Coach Henry Lamar looks for a closely contested match. Harvard's record for this year is comprised of a 7-1 victory over.M.I.T., and a 6-2 loss to Virginia.
One of Springfield's strongest boxers is co-captain McCluskey, the 155-pounder who will meet Pete Olney in what promises to be one of the feature bouts. McCluskey lost only one decision last year, that to Phil Hines of Harvard, while Olney won his M.I.T. match by a knockout and lost a close decision at Virginia to McClung, the Southern Intercollegiate champion.
With co-captain Pete Ward in the infirmary, Jim Kunen is slated to face Anderson in the 135-pound class, while Guy Drake will represent Harvard in the exhibition match against Loo of Springfield.
Making his first intercollegiate start in the 145-pound class is John Brassil, a fast and strong boxer who was undefeated as a Freshman last year. In the second bout in that class, Fred Taylor will fight and exhibition against Readell of Springfield. Another starter in intercollegiate competition is Bill Dennis, runner-up in the intramural championships two years ago, who draws a hard bout against Bradford, a winner against Coast Guard, in the 165-pound division.
Co-captain Bill Smith has been shifted into the heavyweight class to replace Tom Choate, and will meet Dixon, who has the advantage in both weight and height. Dixon weighs 236 pounds and stands 6 feet, 4 Inches tall. Smith has lost only two bouts in three years, one of them to Jeffers of Syracuse, winner of the National A. A. U. championship, and runner-up in the Olympic games, and the other to Leo of Virginia, Southern Conference champion.
In the 175-pound class, Gordon Robertson, who won for Harvard against Virginia, will fight against Walmsley of Springfield. He is a hard and aggressive boxer.
The Freshmen, coached by Tom Curtin, former Varsity 115-pounder, are expected to show favorably against New Hampshire, having defeated M.I.T. 5-3 earlier in the season.
The Freshmen football captain, Arthur Oakes, will appear in the 155-pound division; Waldemar Wysoki, Freshman center, in the 165-pound, and "Ham" Turner is the 225-pound heavyweight. Other entrants are Cunningham, 115 pounds; Sherlock, 125; Stuart, 135; Ellis, 145; and Nee, 175.
The Freshmen start at 7.30 o'clock, and the Varsity at 8.30, in the Indoor Athletic Building. Admission fee $1.40
