Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 25, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta TUESDAY, JUNE 25, 1946 OUT ON A X LIMB with LOBDCEB. FENWICK We sneaked away from work Monday afternoon, and took in the Louis-Conn suckeroo. The theatre was oacked and we would have though; we were at ringside except for the absence of cigar smoke. Everything else was there. Froaa the twentieth, row we thought the movies of the fight were pretty good. Judicious use of the scissors telescoped the film into about eight actual minutes of fight- ing instead of the twenty-three it actually took. There were very few boring moments, and. the eighth round was a humdinger, so we can advise you all to waltz over and take a gander at it. Nevertheless there is very little doubt that the bout was a pushover for the champion. Not once did we see Conn reallv go oil the of- fensive. Be looked all through the bout ss if his onlv wish was to get out of the ring alive. Joe, 011 the other hand, resembled a muscle- bound bloodhound as he pursued the oancinK Pittsburgher. Even a moron could tell, after tfce first round, who was KOin? to win and how he was going to win It. The knockout was a real cloozer and probably would have laid a large elephant low. It came after A flurrv of punches in the center of the ring, all delivered by the champ's left. Conn escaped the flurrv but immediately afterwards ran fcto a wicked right which jolt- ed him momentarily. The punch that really got him. according to the film, was a terrific right upper- cut. He was already on his way to dreamland when Joe connected with his final blow, a left cross. The biggest kick we got out of the j film was the way Joe pranced away to a neutral corner after Conn hit the canvas. If we ever saw a man oozing confidence it was then. He gave the impression that he never thought Billy would get up again. While we're en the subject of the fight we might as well pass along the remarks of a few of the who actually saw the affair. Eddie Joseph, the referee, for instance said that it was the worst fight he'd ever seen and people who paid more than two bucks to see it were, gypped. ___ "Billy had nothing at all." Jo- seph proclaimed. "Louis even out- bo'xecl as well as outfought him. The rieht hand Joe caught him with last round was a pip. It was short. But, brother, 5t car- ried authority. The right and left that followed were merely clinchers. The first one was the clincher." Well Eddie should know. The final remark that well teH vou about comes from Joe Perlove, writer for the Toronto Star. "Conn Is the great Joe writes. "He can't carrv Joe's globes." He also remarked "that you snouldn't send boy on a man's errand, esnecially riding a bicycle, and that the only threat to Louis' crown would appear to be paiher Time.
