Promoter

In 1933 Bremer (of Bremerton, WA, USA) affiliated with Lonnie Austin of Seattle and Frank Smithers of Yakima, and began staging fights at the Seattle Civic Auditorium on Fridays. The big selling feature of the Austin-Bremer-Smithers fights was that they were cheaper than the fights promoted by Seattle's Nate Druxman at the Crystal Pool on Tuesdays. However, Seattle wasn't big enough to support two fight cards a week, and eventually Druxman won the promotional war. The Austin-Bremer-Smithers partnership was soon dissolved.
