FIGHT AFTER CROWD
High school heavyweights Albert Jacobs and Eddie
Anderson trade punches before a crowd of 45-hundred,
as the Regional Golden Gloves tournament goes into
it's final night at Will Rogers Coliseum in Fort Worth.
40 seconds deep in the first round, Jacobs connects
with a left and right and scores a knockout over
Anderson. Anderson represents Paschal High, Jacobs
is a student at Como High School.
Donald Jones, on the left, and Jake Ballard are
competing for the open-class lightweight crown. Jones,
from the Arlington Boys Club, defeated Ballard for the
Regional Featherweight title last year. Ballard,
representing the Sheriff's Club, weighs 136 pounds
and Jones weighs 134. The youngsters fight on even
terms the first two rounds, but a strong finish by
Jones earns him the judges' decision. Jones and the
other open-winners will represent Fort Worth in the
state tournament at Will Rogers Coliseum next month.
