And defensively he is Just a* last an delusive as In December. More important, Walcott has sharpened his left hook until tliat vxjrtsitle blow seems just as explosive as the right Jolt with which he Moored Louis twice in their December meeting. Jersey Joe had a good left hook then, but it was not the menacing weapon that it appears now. The Negro challenger from uear- liy Camdcn has been concentrating on his left hook for the past th':ce weeks. That he has tamped plenty of dynamite Into the left fist was demonstrated yesterday when il knocked sparmate Austin Johnsoi! colder than a frozen fish for s minute and a half. nond.
