NORWOOD STARS LOSE AT AMANN'S
The tides of battle rolled through Parish Hall, Corona, last night and When they receded, a popular Idol had been replaced by another In the esteem of fight fans.
For weeks the fane had been clamoring for Tony Sarrubbl until hia name had become a catchword, and spontaneously when the fans were excited, instead of shouting "hurray" or "th.-ee cheera," they •houted "Sarrubbl." It wae the thing to do, for to the fans Sarrubbl wa« the acme of fighting, the K.O. king.
But that is changed now, and In the future if the fans last night were a criterion, the cheers which shake the roof of Parish Hall will be for Johnny Pile.
And Johnny Pile, if he fights the w a y he fought last night, will de- serve all the laurels the fans can heap upon hie broad, muscular shoulders.
Hammering with wicked Jolts from both hard fists, Pile last night battered Sarrubbl from his feet t ime after time. But Sarrubbl came bade with a tenacity which pro- duced a tense battle.
Go Right At It. With the opening bell Sarrubbl
and Pile closed and there was no doubt that a battle to the finish wa« to be fought. SarrubbL^swung and landed and Pile swung and landed. But Pile, It seemed to the fans, landed harder than Sarrubbl.
Pi le weathered all that Sarubbi could offer and flailing away with both arms he battered Sarubbi off his feet. A bit surprised, perhaps a Mt angry, Sarrubbl leaped to , hi« feet and again he swung.
Hia attempt was met with a heavy, sickening jolt to the jaw and again he went down. The fans were on their feet, for fans do not see a popular Idol thus forced to hit the canvas without some show of surprise.
The first round ended after Sar- rubbl had hit the canvas five times, and the last time only the bell had saved him from the count of ten.
The second round was a repeti- tion of the first except that Sarrubbl was battling the tide of turning fortune. Pile swung and Sarubbi went down. A second time he went down and a third time he went down—and out.
The cyowd burst into a roar of approbation which bore no sugges- tion of "Sarrubbl" but unmistake- ably, perhaps strangely, carried only the words "Pile, Johnny Pile!"
Before passing from a card which Produced little else in the way of sensational fighting, some mention in due the battle staged by Stanley Cross of the Trinity Club and Tom- my Canno of the Ozanam.
Cannon and Cross.
A mediocre first round, in which Cannon had everything his own way with Cross seeming a bit dazed, re- solved Itself into a fierce, slashing affair In the second, with Cross ap- pearing in the stellar role.
It happened so quickly, the tides of battle reversed in such a sudden manner, that before the fans knew what was happening Cannon was stretched on the canvas and a fight- e r who had seemed a sure loser ap- peared about to win. Only the bell saved Cannon at the end of the second round, a slarhing, battering, bloody affair.
In the third both fighters seemed .;.-4o be awake to their tactics and
there was fought out as fast a found of scientific boxing as has
. b e e n seen in Corona in some time. ",. Both fighters showed the strain, t*tooth gradually began to become «*«roggy and both fought, not from
any desire to fight, but from the fighting instinct which both have
Jk* strongly developed. They clinch- ^tM and broke nnd hammered away
and at the end the judges ordered another round.
The fourth proved ft toe-to-top match, with both battlers swinging
