"Yarosz, making his eeventh appearance here, looked like anytbing but the Tommy who made two great winning performances against Jimmy Edgar, and was able to cop only two rounds on the officials score sheets. Barnes forced the fight all the way, boring in, continually raking his opponent with punches from all angles." (from The Ring, August 1950, page 50)
