The Freshman boxers established a lead early in the meet which cinched their close 4 1/2-3 1/2 win over the Yale yearlings. Some of the best boxing of the afternoon was demonstrated by Captain Dwight Ellis, who fought at a handicap against Jones, a taller man. Holding his left low, he guarded effectively with his shoulder and his right glove, and connected enough wide hooks to win the decision.
Arthur Oakes, at 165 pounds, has all the makings of a showman to rival Phi Hines. He had control of the situation with sharp left jabs to the head, followed by rights to the body.
One of the games fights seen in a Harvard ring was demonstrated by Dave Gardner, rocky heavyweight who made his debut of the season to replace Ham Turner. There was wild, unskilled swinging by both Gardner and Weed, with the Eli on the offensive. Gardner continually took Weed's long-range offerings undefended, against the ropes and in the corners a large part of the time.
The bout between Eddle Davis and Stewart in the 155-pound class developed into a slug-fest in the last round. Stewart, the more finished boxer, was held to a draw.
Waldemar Wysocki in the 175-pound class, and Ed Whitney at 135 pounds, each took quite a beating to lose decision to Danielson and Linthicum. Henry Sherlock, 125-pounder, used agile footwork and wide hocks to win a decision over Bailley, while Don Sleeper defeated Thompson, Yale's 115-pounder after knocking him down in the second round.
