New York (C)—Highest paid
guy in sports history for using his
mitts, Joe Louis, dropped into lit
tle old New York most unexpect
edly, last Friday. Joe’s mission
was to try to induce promoter
Mike Jacobs to pick his hometown
Detroit, instead of Manhattan, as
sue for his scuffle with (Yoga)
Nova, which the champ himself
has hinted might be his last in the
game. That’s if the going is too
Now, Mike, the wise one hasn’t
said one word or other about
where he’s planning to stage the^
battle In fact, any promoter who
has the price of a long distance
call (Mike’s too sharp to take
them for less) can “try” to sell
his hometown to Jacobs as THE
place. Boston has already put up
a $250,000 guarantee. Detroit,
not afr behind, offers $200,000 in
advance ticket sales “But, I’ve
had so many bids lately, that I do
not know which way to refuse.”
That’s all Mike says about this
However, as we reported three
weeks ago, close friends of Mike
have confided with us that the

rambled a great deal to news re

he are on par, but that Conn is a
faster and better boxer and hard

plenty game. I don't think I’ll
have as much trouble with Nova
as I did with Conn because Lou is
easier to hit. I would rate Nova
a better hitter than Conn.
