Port Arthur TX: January 21, 1927: (Elks Theater) ... Gus Kallio beat Henry Karhunsaari (2-0) ... Promoter: Jack Fisher ... Nick Ruysenaars beat Ned Dugas (both Port Arthur TX "youngsters") ... Bill Barrs (of Jackson MS) beat Kid Browney (of Port Arthur TX) ... NOTE: Kallio was defending his "world's junior middleweight" title against the "Ferocious Finn" ... Promoter Fisher was the "former lightweight titleholder" ... Kallio won first fall in 43:30 with a reversed double bar armlock ... As Karhunsaari hit the canvas, he bumped his head, was slightly stunned, and lost the second fall in short order (one minute, 20 seconds) while in a weakened condition ... "local boys" John Gore and John Williamson had a ten-minute, no-decision bout
