Story of Heavyweight Title
Match with Lesnevich False
DETROIT, July 20 - (P) -
Heavyweight Champion Joe Louis,
commenting on reports he might
return to the ring for a Sept. 22
bout with Gus Lesnevich, said to-
day, "I don't know where those
rumors come from. I've retired
and that is all there is to it."
Louis, in an interview with
Lyall Smith, sports editor of
The Detroit Free Press, ap-
pearedta bit irked over the re-
ports that he would take on
Lesnevich, the light heavywight
Louis' comments were in con-
nection with a copyrighted story
by Nat Fleischer in the Septem-
ber issue of Ring Magazine. In
that article, Fleischer said Louis
had indicated his willingness to
come back for just one more
Fleischer said Louis indicated
that he is weakening in his re-
tirement stand and is willing to
come back for just one more fight.
"I can't go from one round of
golf to another," Louis is quoted
as telling Fleischer, "I have to
look forward to something more
exciting. Maybe I should meet
Lesnevich. I can beat him. I
still will be able to retire un-
beaten like Gene Tunney.".. ..
Lesnevich now is in London,
getting ready for his July 26 bout
there with Freddie Mills, a fight
he must win to' keep alive any
chances of a September date with
Louis will be in Mike Jacobs'
office Friday, ostensibly to collect
his share of the movie receipts
from the second Walcott fight.
This is estimated at "about $100,-
"I haven't seen or talked to Mr.
Nat Fleischer since the night after
my fight with Jersey Joe Wal-
cott," said Louis today. ,
The heavyweight champ said he
was tired of answering questions
about his retirement.
He added, "I have until six
months after the Walcott fight
to notify the New York Boxing
Commission that I have offi-
cially retired. Why can't they
give me those six months and
let me alone?"
Questioned by Smith as to
whether he definitely would file
the retirement papers, Louis re-
plied quickly, "absolutely."
John Roxborough, long time
manager and friend of heavy-
weight champion Joe Louis, said a
