The warnings had a certain good effect, but not to the desired extent." - Globe & Mail. "Vigorously warned several times during the bout to put a bit more win and wigor into his punches "The Keed" and his handlers vehemently declared that the Cuban wonder had sore hands and even further injured them during the bout." - Toronto Star. After an examination, The O.A.C.'s official physician said that "The left was undoubtedly injured."
