TAYLOR SIGNED UP
TO FIGHT TED FOX
For Final Game
" Against Uclas
Allle Taylor .of Bend, three
times conqueror of Phil Bayes,
was the logical man to bring to
Balem for a fight against Ted Pox
following the Independence lad's
triumph over Bayes, and Match
maker Harry Plant announced
Wednesday that the match, ten
tatively planned prior to last
week's fight in the event of a vtc
tnn for Fox' had been signed up
definitely for next Thursday. De
cember , at the Oregon .theatre.
Taylor's supremacy over Bayes
wasn't so marked as that dis
played by Fox when he knocked
Bayes out in the fifth round a
week ago, but Taylor hasn't been
fighting as long as Bayes, and
hasn't gone back any from his
form of two and three years ago
when he was listed as one of the
leaders at his weight in the north.
meat He hu kent the speed that
made him a contender early in his
career, and has been gradually
adding power to his attack.
Fox will have a harder time dis
posing of Taylor than he did In
putting Bayes away; but if Sa
lem's new favorite accomplishes
this difficult task, there are some
more fast boys waiting the call to
come to Salem and match punches
with the speedy lad from Independence.
