V THE SELMA TIMES-JOURNAL, SUNDAY, MARCH 26, 19S0 r LOUIS DENIES INTENTION OF BIG COMEBACK Wouldnt Get What Hed Want For Fighting Says Battler WACO, Tex., March 25 IP) Joe Louis said here tonight he would not return to the ring but instead has signed a contract to tour Canada for a circus. Winding up an exhibition tour in America, the former World's heavyweight champion who retired March 1, 1948, after beating Joe Walcott, announced he would go with the Dailey Brothers Circus at a minimum of $1,000 per day. He will be with the circus 94 days starting May 24. Louis said he did not necessarily want to fight Ezzard Charles, the current champion, and that they couldnt pay me what I would want to do it anyway. I would want 35 percent and since there is only 80 per cent for the fighters in' a bout, the champion would have to take less than the challenger. Louis said the main obstacle in the way of title fight would be all this training routine to get into shape. Louis came here from Austin, Texas, where he had conferred with officials of the circus. Louis had been talking all along of his tour as if he planned to make a comeback. He was quoted once as saying he was making the tour just to see if he could get in shape for a title fight. He had 26 bouts on the tour, including one here tonight. But yesterday when he left Austin to go to Gonzales, Texas to confer with the circus operators he was quite evasive over his plans. Louis talked with this circus before but at the time was too busy with exhibition schedule to arrange a tour.
