Civatti Outslugs Rugged O’Donnell

Camden Courier Post – Feburary 26, 1930

National Park, Feb. 26—Boxing fans here still are mulling over the weekly fistic exhibition held last night at the Belmont Fire Hall.

Six scraps comprised the program and nearly every bout on the card was a wild affair. In the six-round wind-up Hughey Civatti, of Philadelphia, won the referee’s decision over Bobby O’Donnell, of East Camden, after a hard fight. Al White, veteran Paulsboro lightweight, defeated Lew Kinkle, of Camden, in the six-round semi-final.

However, it remained for Dominick Fusco, of Camden, and Billy Lauer, of Kensington, to stage the most spectacular bout of the night when they met in the main preliminary of four rounds. Fusco knocked out Lauer in the fourth with a volley of body blows after having dropped him for a count of nine in the third. Fusco didn’t escape unscathed, as he was down once in each of the first three rounds.

Paddy Burns, of Philadelphia, defeated Joey Allen, of Camden, in four rounds. Frankie Barry, cf Camden, and Joe Torpey, of Philadelphia, drew in four rounds, while Zeke Myers stopped Georgie Clark in the first round. Both are local boys.
