IN KILLING MOOOD FOR BASHARA BATTLE

favorite with the fans tomorrow night at Grip's Pennsauken township
Whitman Park junior welterweight, is the boxer in question. Lucas is
scheduled to clash with Tommy Bashara, of Norfolk, Va., in the feature

eight-round semi-final and three
six-rounders complete the card.
main event is expected to attract a larger crowd than attended last week's
show, as there are strained feelings between the principals, who engaged
in an eight-round draw at Norfolk about a year ago. In addition, Bashara's
brother, "Toots" twice
was awarded decisions
over Lucas in recent
months, with the result that Lucas will be in a killing mood when he again
to Anthony Georgette, Lucas' manager, Johnny is in prime physical fettle
and is determined to make his first impression on the Bashara family.
I'm partial to Lucas, but I was not alone in thinking that Johnny should
have been given the decision
over "Toots" in their last fight
at Wilmington, Delaware," Georgette said today.
the entire crowd thought Lucas had won as he dropped Bashara twice, still
the judges gave Bashara the best of it," Georgette continued. "I
guess the judges failed to take into consideration the two knockdowns
otherwise, Bashara never had a chance to win.
Lucas lost the decision and still is 'peeved' about the result. He is in
perfect shape for this fight and expects to win decisively over Tommy
despite the fact that the latter gave him a great fight last year.
is in as good shape for this fight as he was when he surprised everybody
by getting a draw with Johnny Jadick. I was 'ribbed' unmercifully for
taking the fight, but I knew that Lucas had improved greatly and also that
he was 'in the pink.'
still is 'hot' about his last bout with 'Toots' Bashara and plans to get a
measure of revenge by handing Tommy a good licking. Lucas will make a
fight of it and if Tommy also is willing to stand and fight it out, he's
likely to be on his back long before the 10th round rolls around,"
how Lucas' skipper feels about the forthcoming scrap and if Bashara, who
is fast and a good puncher, elects to stand and trade punches the fuss
should be an exciting brawl and Lucas also is clever and packs a stiff
punch in both hands.
Serody, agile Philadelphian, is billed to meet Martin Haley, of
Kensington, in the eight-round semifinal.
Joey Allen, South Camden Italian, faces Mike Palmer, of Philadelphia, in the main preliminary of six rounds. In the other two six-rounders, Lou Heineman, of Lindenwold, takes on Terry McGovern of the United States Marine Corps, and Davey Taylor, of South Camden, clashes with Mickey Shannon, another local product.
