Herriman Saturday

Friday, March 13 1908 -- Tonight the Naud Junction Pavilion hosts three boxing matches, the highlight of which is Johnny Coulon, the noted featherweight out of Chicago, going up against local boy Young Terry McGovern (whose real name, the accompanying article tells us, is Joe Stedelli). Although there are high hopes for McGovern, the real pro, Coulon, will end up taking the match.

The other two bouts  (Rube Smith vs. Russell Van Horn and Jimmy Austin vs. Joe Riviera) are most notable in that they represent the very first time I've been let down by the boxrec website. Although most of the fighters are listed these bouts are unrecorded.
