We've never Isked the Pitts- burgh kid and it did us a >os of good to hear him being massacred. It also made us feel very prosper- ous. Jingle, jingle! Louis says he doe--n't think he'll fight again this year. He probably would if there was an j one on the horizon willing and able to give nun a good fsgbt. But he obviously doesn't want to get tangled up with another second-rate opponent so he'll wast until someone good comes along. Two stenchy fights in a row wouldn't do his reputation nor that of the boxing game any good.
