It was close, though. Rocky was staggered three times. Now Rocky wants to give his push-button chin a sterner test against former middleweight champion Randy Turpin in Eng- x land, April 22. "We made an arrangement with Jack Solomons (the London promoter) for a fight with Turpin on the 22nd providing Rocky whipped Bratton," said ma linger Tex Sullivan. "If Solomons holds to the terms we're ready to go over whenever he Bays." Win or lose, the up and down middleweight usually has to hear the referee count over him before he can get rolling. , Against Bratton, however, he started winging from the opening bell. Before Bratlon got organized ami stopped gunning for a one£ punch knock out, Rocky had a tremendous lead. JOCK AND JILL—G. Walker, showing no signs of a strenuous ride.

Welch became so enraged during the brawl that he demanded that the between-round rest period be waived after he and his partner had lost the second fall and that the third fall start immediately.
