He was extremely awkward in handling himself, and his one asset, a haymaker, went for naught against the exceptional cleverness 0* the little Briton. Knight's swings seemed as if timed by the clock when stacked up against the speed of Welsh The bout was a tame affair, although rendered pleasing to the crowd by the manner in which Welsh smothered the Kansas City man in his attempts at a knockout punch.
