Alley, a contender for the world’s light-heavyweight championship, has met all the cracks, and a fortnight ago was eliminated from the championship series by Ad. Santel.  He is 27 years of age, 5ft. 9in. in height, and weighs 12st. 7lb.

Ten rounds of boxing will precede the wrestling, the principal bout being a return match between Jim Goff (Fremantle) and Len Firth (Perth).
