I 32nd Naval Anniversary Brings Them to NATTC, NAS Bigtime Fall Boxing Starts Next Week

.. .
.'' ., ," < Bigtime boxing will return to NATTC next week when

'. -( the first of a series of fall and winter matches will be

staged here at the open air arena, bringing together for the

first time members of the highly-rated NATTC team and

r Maxwell Army Air Field, near Montgomery.

<> ',' Lieut. (jg) William Muir said early this week that i iL

wasn't known just how many fighters would come or ip, 1

what weight classes, but Maxwell is said to have an aggress

sive boxing team which will offer some fast fighting for the .

t 3 x: local outfit whose members are considered some of the tops

in service teams throughout the country.

More details will be announced later, but it's a good

deal to set aside Friday night, 14 September, for some fast

and furious boxing. The NATTC team is to fight a return

a; e match at Maxwell Field late this month.

Muir said that it was practically assured that a coupleof

matches would be staged with the Cherry Point Marines,

either in October or November, and fights with the Orlando

Army Air Base are reasonably certain.
