There had to be one In the 15,000,000 young men Uncle Sam girded for war. And those present when he dropped the 203-pound Walter Hafer flat on his face and out like a third strike at Madison Square Garden the other night have a sneaking idea that in Bernie Reynolds they saw the GI Joe boxing has been waiting for.- Schooled observers call the 22- yenr-old Reynolds, veteran of eight months of action in Europe, the brightest of heavyweight prospects, The six-foot Reynolds, who came in at 177VL- pounds for his last outing, is a typical American boy, handsome enough to be in pictures. In boxing, young Reynolds has the added advantage of being an all-around natural athlete. The fourth of seven children born to parents of Irish-English extraction in Falrficlcl, Conn., he excelled in football, hockey and hurling tho javelin and throwing tho dlscuM at the high school from which he was graduated. He was a running guard in football, a forward In- hockey. His father is a factory worker in Bridgeport. Reynolds did no boxing while .In high school, but says he always wanted to. Billy Conn was his idol. Oddly enough, Gus Lesnevlch, the light-heavyweight leader whom the Pittsburgh Collar Ad twice outbox- cd, now has a piece of him as the partner of Joe Vella, man about Cliffsidc Pork, N. J., which IB situated Just across the Hudson at 125th' Street. Reynolds had gloves laced on his hands for the first time at Camp Stewart, Ga., so is strictly a GI product. There he was quickly spotted by the trained eye of Vella, manager of Lesnevlch, who happened to be handling boxing. "I don't know how this is going to work out for UH, kid," Vclla told the youngster, "but if we get back in good shape and you want to box professionally, look me up in Cliff-side Park, N. J." Vella also saw considerable action on the other side. Six of the eight months Pfc. Reynolds was in action was spent as the member of an anti-aircraft gun crew lending a hand in throwing screens over the tanks of Gen. George S. Patton's famous Third Army. Reynolds remembered, the stocky, ring-wise Vella, who so carefully guided him as he broke into boxing at Camp- Stewart, got in touch with him early last year. Knowing Reynolds h a d the goods, Vella took him to his Cliffside Park home and gymnauium, where he could watch his diet and where Lesnevich. is still schooling the lad. Reynolds broke in smack dab as a professional, April 23, 1046, and since that time hns won 21 of 22, 17 by knockouts. In his only reverse he was outsmarted in eight rounds by Tom Reddington, one of G'-eat Britain's ranking heavyweights, whom he gave poundage and -lots of experience in the semifinal to the Lesnevich-B r u c e Woodcock * fight In London last Sept. 17. Reynolds' most impressive performances came In Garden semifinals to main events featuring Lesnevich. Jackie Cranford of Washington was bomed as an outstanding heavyweight prospect. Reynolds had him in the slag in the first, taking an eight-round decision. Walter Hafer was a sparring partner o.f Joe Louis on the champion's Latin American tour. Reynolds spotted the ex-Marine 25Vi pounds. A right hand punch that didn't travel a foot put Hafner down in the first. Coming out for the seventh, Reynolds belted Hafet* \\ II L.

A right to the Jaw in tin exchange ended it in 66 seconds of the round, Reynolds is a combination boxer- puncher, wit a left hook that hurts and a devastating right. He will correct the tendency to loop ; the latter. He Jabs very well, is developing into a body puncher. · Pie takes it as well as he dishes it out, is crazy about the business. He is aggressive, and the crowd takes to him. Still growing, Reynolds should weigh 185 pounds, in another year, each his peak at 190. He may be two years away, as they say, but will not be rushed. He is in good hands. Vella and Lesnevich no longer need quick money, and wouldn't take it in any case at th^ risk of ruining a young fighter, Joe Vella and Gus Lesnevich, better than green hands, are the surest that in Bernie Reynolds they have a heavyweight champion, and that shortly ho will be a punching challenger for whom no apologies will have to be made.
