(UP) — Jo« Louis fights a four round exhibition match with Bob Foxworth »t the Chicago Coliseum tonight, and th« Brown Bomber plans to go all oui to keep his opponent on the defensive. Louis' title will not be at stake However, Foxworth would dim Ihe lusler of the bomber's championship reign by knocking him out or even sending him to the canvas If Foxworth should win a clean cut decision, Louis would still have the litle but it wouldn't be worth much. "I've seen Foxworth light a couple of times," Louis said tociay, "and about all i know about him is he can hit hard. Anytime you get i fellow who can hit as hard as tie can, you don't take any chances." Joe, who put on the worst performance ol his championship career but won a much disputed decision from Jersey Joe Walcott last December, said he would do his best to hit the tall and lean Foxworth. "I didn't hit Walcott," he said, "and I'm certainly going to hit .somebody." ! , Buck, guard. Vivian Holder, » Kiiaid, was not present wild: the piclure was lakcn.
