Golden Glovers at Stadium Tonight Chicagoans Clash With Europeans Schreibauer, German Heavy; Tate of Navy Expected Big Guns of Explosive Mitt Card By the United Press The invading European Golden Gloves battlers ended drills yesterday for their international bouts with Chicagos champions in Chicago Stadium tonight. European officials called this, years squad the best in the history of the matches and flatly predicted the fighters from overseas would wallop the Chicagoans, conquerors of New Yorks team. Leading the foreign team was the German heavyweight, Herman Schreibauer, a hard-hitting veteran of more than 100 amateur fights. Joe De Crop of Belgium, coach of the Europeans, expressed confidence that Schreibauer would easily handle either Charles Liston or Bob Jefferson, the two Chicago heavyweights. Another outstanding prospect for a European victory was the French featherweight, Abdelkrader Mohammed Sherif Hamia, a clever stylist who was tutored by the former French idol, Georges Carpentier. There are 10 bouts instead of the usual eight because of European differences in weight classifications. The two extra divisions are the light welterweight and the light middleweight. The Chicago team was not scheduled to be named until just before the fight, but fans looked forward to watching Bill Tate, a 165-pounder from the Navy. Tate is a knockout artist with amazing recuperative powers and when the 1952 Golden Gloves team visited Europe, he won all but one fight.
