Fiantini In Training For Go With Speary
Dominic Fiantini is not spending the holiday with
his folks in Reading, as he had planned to. Instead he is in New York,
training at the Pioneer gym for his eight-round contest with Billy
Speary at the Fair Grounds next Monday night, September 9.
When it was decided last Wednesday to postpone the
boxing show which had been rained out until the ninth, Dominic was
happy--for a minute. "Now I can go to Reading and stay with my
folks until after Labor Day," he said to his manager, Gus Browne.
"Get, the car." said Browne,
turning to the trainer, "we are going to start right back to New
York and you are going along back Dominic."
"You promised me I could go to Reading for
the holiday," said Fiantini, plainly disappointed.
"That was before I knew about the
postponement," said Browne. "There will be other holidays, but
I don't know when you will get another chance to fight Speary and we
cannot take any chances. If you go to Reading, you'll break training and
we caw not afford to do that now."
In the year that he has been in New York, Fiantini
has paid but one visit to his home in Reading. He has been too busy
piling up a pugilistic record. His manager is a veteran who has handled
hundreds of successful boxers. He has but one system: his own word is
"Dominic is the chap who broke the winning
streaks," said Browne when he was reminded that Speary remains
undefeated in 18 professional bouts, He pointed out that Fiantini
himself remains undefeated. "And man for man, he has had tougher
opposition than Speary" concluded Browne.
