And from the looks of things he was m none loo good condition to face the meanics alone But he had plenty left as he exploded a vicious right hand on Robert's vulnerable chin an<j soon had him kayocd. Despite" some vicious'work Canny was unable to match the curly haired power house and also (ell a Victim to the TNT laden right hand, all of which consumed 10 minutes.

Actully It was an effective combination of rough work Which Included almost everything in and out ol the modem category. Parker proved superior to Roberts. In their slugtcst that resembled more of a fight than a wrestling affair. Meroney unwittingly plajed a role in the defeat of Red. The official had to start stamp- Ing Robert's feet to make him break. That raised Red's ire and he took : out after Mike. -That kit Parker free to measure him with a right And did he clip him! -Red .•wasn't.sure it was a truck or a train The time: 17 minutes.
