the tournament Dick was golden boy runner-up while
Portland boxer Ray Lampkin was the
winner and golden boy after his finals victory over
Vancouver's hometown east end boxer WAYNE BOYCE.
Vancouver Sun reporter DAVID EMPEY:
- but it all came down to either Findlay or Ray Lampkin...
...It was LAMPKIN, the quick and tough featherweight
from Portland's Knott Street, who knocked Wayne Boyce
flat on his face with a left hook and right cross, then
blasted him with sizzling jabs and hooks
