The boxing match being played in Invercargill between Joseph Parker and Bowie Tupou, made me remember the days when Nightcaps Boxing Club existed and the exciting matches we had then. This is one in particular where I had written down notes.
The match was between F. McKay, Southland Champion and M. McMillan the New Zealand Champion and was the highlight of the Nightcaps Boxing Club's annual meet. These two boxers always put up a great fight and this contest was no exception.
McMillan took the points decision by taking the initiative in the first round with some solid punching, both to the head and body and took the win.In the second round McKay threw some solid punches in the second which made McMillan stagger, but he fought back, to the thrill of the crowd who were in an uproar. The pace was still on in the third round with both boxers fighting hard. Unfortunately McKay received a cut above his eye and with McMillan connecting solid right hand punches the referee stopped the contest at the end of the round. The contest was awarded to McMillan on points. If the bout had gone the full round McKay may have worn McMillan down as he was fighting strongly.
A special trophy for the best boxer from the Nightcaps club was presented to R. Spencer.
Officials controlling the game from the Southland Boxing Association were Referees; R. A. Bargrie, R. V. Baker. Judges; G.A McEwan, G.H. Hughes and C.N. McKenzie.
