Waukegan - Packey McFarland, the Chicago fighter, who is to meet Kid Herman at Davenport on Nov.21, had his ear almost chewed off yesterday afternoon at the farm of William Gee, near Waukegan.
As a result of the accident, Harry Gilmore, Packey's manager, says the boxer will have to cease boxing in his training for about a week to allow the wound to heal. He says it will positively not interfere with the Herman fight, although he fears the accident may prove a serious handicap.
