Farmer Barney Wins Again

September 14, 1928

An article appearing in the Brooklyn Times Tuesday has this to any of Farmer Barney when he met Abe Coleman in the bouts at Ridgewood Grove Monday evening:

Farmer Barney, who halls from Hicksville, brought with him a delegation from the Island and did not disappoint his following, pinning the shoulders of Abe Coleman, of Brooklyn, to the floor in 20 minutes, Coleman writhed and made a supreme effort to extricate himself from the powerful grasp of Farmer Barney. All the efforts of Coleman were futile, however, and he finally surrendered to the grasp. Farmer Barney tipped the scale at 195, 19 pounds more than Coleman.
