Injured Arm Causes Boston Boxer to Give Up the Fight.
Sam Langford of Cambridge won from Timmy Kerns of Boston in two rounds in the feature bout at the Lenox Club last night. The match was to have been a twelve-round go, but Kerns refused to continue after he injured his arm on Langford's forehead in the second round. Langford had it all his own way in the first round and crossed a left hand smash on the jaw just before the gong rang that made Kerns groggy.

Eddie Carr of South Boston and Kid Paul of Fall River boxed a fast six-round draw and Young Bernstein of the North End got the decision on a foul in the second round over Young Dixon of Chicago. "Bangor" Connelly of South Boston was knocked out in three rounds by John Shea of South Boston.

Boston, June 6.--Referee Donnelly stopped the feature event at the Lenox Athletic Club last night because Tim Kearns of Lawrence, who was contesting with Sam Langford, colored, of this city, injured his left arm. While the bout lasted it was a clever exhibition. The members were disappointed at the way it terminated, as it gave Langford a hollow victory.

Eddie Carr and Kid Paull did some excellent work in a six-round preliminary, which resulted in a draw.

The other contests ended as follows: J. Shea beat Bangor Connolly in six rounds and Kid Bernstein won on a foul from Young Dixon, colored, in two rounds.
