expressed great surprise st Townsend's progress Usd Little Trouble waft a pretty good boy" Joe recalled I didn't have a great deal of trouble with him in that bout Townsend backed sway as I remember and tried to make me follow him but I stood off until I had a chance to hit him that time he didn't have such a hard punch but he no doubt has now I hops him nil the luck in the world" Afschllman concluded The referee of match with Aeachliman was Bob Luster who has seen amateur greats come and go for many years Luster too was pleasantly surprised but he wee forced to admit that "he must have improved plenty" remember Townsend and hia fight with Aeschllman" Luster said "Aeschtlman beat him but it was a very good battle certainly must have improved wonderfully or he never could have reached the Olympic finals In my opinion he wasn't one of the outstanding boys in that Luster declared The conqueror of Aeschllman in that meet Ksts also had a recollection of Townsend but he couldn't remember juat how good he was Was Featherweight In 30 1 think he was a good boy alright but you know he ia a light heavy now and then he was a featherweight which means a lot has happened since that time1 Ksts aaid boy is one who would never give up" declared Bob Mas scy a close friend of Townsend and one of the closest followers of amateur boxing in Memphis could fight but boy how he could take
