  The card this night presented "All Star Boxing" with the Brooklyn-born boxer Carmelo Costa losing to the Algerian featherweight Cherif Hamia in split decision after 10 rounds.  In a match of New York middleweights, George Chimenti battled for 6 with the brutally popular Billy Lepido before taking the laurels, while the fine lightweight "Sonny Boy" Williams, out of Washington, D.C., took only 3 of his slated 6 to stop Philly's George Justine, after putting Justine down in the 2nd, and thus ended the Pennsylvanian's career.  The other middling match pitted New Jersey's Gene Washington and New York's Johnny Clemente at middleweight, with Elizabeth's hero from across the river taking the win.  The pairings for short action placed the Bronx's Richie Glennon and Brooklyn's Johnny Webster in the ring together for 4, with the mainlander Glennon garnering the win, then both promptly retired from the sport.  The last combat on the card found the veteran featherweight from Brooklyn Tony Franco besting the novice from Camuy, Puerto Rico, Pedro Franqui by decision.
