    BRUNO ARCARI OF ITALY BEAT JOHANN ORSOLICS OF AUSTRIA IN THE 12TH ROUND OF A 15-ROUND BOUT FOR THE EUROPEAN LIGHT-WELTERWEIGHT BOXING TITLE IN VIENNA LAST NIGHT (TUESDAY).

    ORSOLICS, THE HOLDER, LOST THE TITLE WHEN THE REFEREE STOPPED THE FIGHT BECAUSE OF A CUT OVER THE CHAMPION'S EYE.

    THE CUT WAS OPENED IN THE 12TH ROUND WHEN ARCARI FORCED THE AUSTRIAN TO THE ROPES AND LANDED A HEAVY PUNCH TO HIS FACE. BLOOD WELLED OUT OF THE CUT, AND AFTER ARCARI HAD LANDED ANOTHER PUNCH OF THE WOUND THE REFEREE, GEORGE MARTIN AND SCOTLAND, STOPPED THE CONTEST.

    ARCARI WAS COMFORTABLY AHEAD ON POINTS AT THE TIME. HE OUT-BOXED ORSOLICS, MOVING FASTER AND LANDING HEAVY RIGHT-HAND PUNCHES. ORSOLICS WAS DOING BETTER WHEN THE END CAME, BUT WAS STILL WELL BEHIND AND THE ITALIAN SEEMED CERTAIN TO WIN.
