Douglas scored by f.'.r the greater number of points in the first thre« I rounds, during which, however. Joo got home | with telling lefts and rights to the body. These i blows had a detrimental effect on the plucky South African, who began to weaken in tho j fourth round, a fact of which Joe. quick to notice, took advantage by plying hfs blov.s ?'upstairs' in the hope q I scoring a knock-out.
