PTS10/10
Madison Square Garden, New York, New York, USA
"The decline of the welterweight division championed by reluctant Little Joe Dundee of Baltimore never was more strikingly demonstrated than in Madison Square Garden last night, when the smallest crowd of the local indoor season saw [this bout]. Jones, a sprightly Negro, danced rings around Mello and punched holes, dropping him twice for the count of nine. Mello kept coming in and trying but the Akron boxer knew far too much boxing...." (UP)
