"Manila's Danny Kid and Jose (Toluco) Lopez of Mexico City are going to meet in another 10 rounder here May 2nd. Kid scored an upset victory Tuesday night at Hollywood Legion Stadium. Matchmaker Jackie Leonard said he will be happy to oblige, since the boys put up a pretty good fight. There weren't any knockdowns but the crowd was on its feet at the finish. Lopez is the No. 2 ranked bantamweight and was hoping to get a shot at champion Alphonse Halimi of France. He will have to beat the busy Filipino first." -Associated Press
