It was a wild, savage mix-up and brought the cpecta-tors in a body to their feet cheering when the belt rung tor the end of the first round. - Abel braced up in the second and used his left in straight leads for the face to good advantage. It was Abel's round. Rollo cam back furiously in the third and Abel tnet-hlm at his own game.
