Boxing matches in Hawaii nei, 1911.

BOXING AT THE ORPHEUM

There will be a boxing match of twelve rounds between George “Slim” Gilmore, the slugger of San Francisco, and Jim Hoao, Honolulu’s Hawaiian boy who is skilled at throwing blows; Dick Sullivan will be the referee.

There will be others boxing as well.
